Physical Education Curriculum Guide: Performance Expectations, K-12.
The purpose of this guide was to unify physical education programs in several school districts through the development of common objectives. Curricular content was developed according to levels of learning in attitudes, concepts, and skills, recognizing skills in a sequential developmental and spiral arrangement. Nine areas of motor skill development are covered: (1) basic motor skills; (2) body control activities; (3) games of low organization; (4) team sports; (5) individual and dual sports; (6) recreational games; (7) lifetime sports; (8) physical fitness; and (9) attitudes and values. Performance expectations are listed for each activity by grade level from kindergarten through grade 12. A code is provided to clarify the approximate level of skill that should be expected at different stages of growth. An "I" following a specific activity indicates initial formal instruction of the basic concept or skills is appropriate for the mental and physical ability of the students. "R" indicates the concept or skill has been introduced at a previous level, but additional instruction is deemed necessary prior to mastery. "M" indicates that the average student is expected to have learned the concept or skill. (JD)
