Physical Education. Multicultural Nonsexist Education in Iowa Schools.
Barta, Sheryl; Andersen, Tom
This pamphlet is intended to aid Iowa school district curriculum committees in developing and implementing the physical education component of their school district's multicultural nonsexist educational plan. Definitions of terms used in the pamphlet are given. The rationale and philosophy underlying the elementary and secondary curricula design are discussed with reference to physical education. The legal authority for bias free, nondiscriminatory education is cited from sections of the Iowa Code and Iowa School Standards. A statement is presented of four goals and suggested objectives that should be integrated into a multicultural nonsexist physical education program. A checklist for school administrators presents questions that may be used as guidelines for evaluating existing physical education curricula in the areas of structure, content, materials and resources, and teaching strategies. A bibliography of 30 resources and a list of organizations which provide information on multicultural nonsexist physical education programs are included. (JD)
