New Forms and Substance in Physical Education.
Curriculum Report, v4 n2 Dec 1974
This report states that today's physical education programs are aimed at helping students acquire constructive concepts and desirable habits regarding the preservation of a well-tuned, efficiently functional human body and all its healthy competitive components. Physical education has grown into a consortium of several identifiable areas of specialization: kinesiology, sport arts, sport sociology, curriculum, history and philosophy, movement education, adaptive programs, and athletics. This growth has been accompanied by a number of curriculum-related problems, five of which are discussed in this report. Also mentioned are the continuing projects on which the Secondary School Physical Education Council is working: evaluation and assessment, student sports awards, Physical Education Public Information (PEPI), Project IDEA, and the Center for Innovation in Secondary School Physical Education. Some examples of innovative practices in physical education, which were selected from information that has been gathered by Project IDEA, are annotated. Seven publications are listed for supplementary reading. (PD)
