Minnesota State Dept. of Education, St. Paul.
This guide is designed to encourage educators as well as parents and community members to view physical education as an integral component of the school's educational program. It can be used for curriculum building and as an example of what represents current best practices in physical education. Model learner outcomes cover eight areas of study: (1) perceptual motor development; (2) developmental movement skills; (3) rhythm and dance; (4) health-related physical fitness and wellness; (5) group activities, team sports, and recreational activities; (6) individual/dual sports and recreational activities; (7) outdoor education; and (8) aquatics. There are a total of 83 model learner outcomes that cover all areas of study within the physical education curriculum. Each outcome represents a development or concept emphasis with the following focuses: psychomotor; cognitive; affective; multicultural; gender fair; and international/global. Each model learner outcome can have a measurable assessment item design to demonstrate the learner's attainment. (JD)
