Physical Education Model Curriculum Standards. Grades Nine through Twelve.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
These physical education standards were designed to ensure that each student achieve the following goals: (1) physical activity--students develop interest and proficiency in movement skills and understand the importance of lifelong participation in daily physical activity; (2) physical fitness and wellness--students increase understanding of basic body systems to develop and maintain the highest possible level of physical fitness and wellness; (3) movement skills and movement knowledge--students increase effective motor skills development, understand the fundamentals of movement by practicing and analyzing purposeful movement, and appreciate the aesthetics of expressive and creative movement; (4) social development and interaction--students learn appropriate prosocial behaviors and leadership skills by participating in planned physical activities in which they develop an appreciation of self and others, experience independent and group work, and learn how to cooperate and compete with others in the achievement of common goals; (5) self-image and self-realization--students develop and maintain a positive self-image, value their personal identity, and have the opportunity to develop and display self-control, self-direction, and self-expression; and (6) individual excellence--students are encouraged to achieve high personal levels of performance by integrating psychosocial development, growth and development, and the humanities. The six sections of these standards are based on these goals; each section provides objectives and representative activities. (AMH)
