Physical Education Objectives. DOD Dependents Schools.
Dependents Schools (DOD), Washington, DC.
These program objectives were developed to support the Department of Defense Dependent Schools Five Year Curriculum Development Plan and are designed to provide a basis for elementary, middle, and secondary school physical education curricula. A balance of psychomotor, cognitive, and affective aspects is emphasized. General, program, and instructional objectives are presented for three educational levels: kindergarten through fourth grade, fifth through eighth grade, and ninth through twelfth grade. Program areas include: (1) efficient motor skills; (2) role of physical fitness in daily living; (3) desirable social behavior; (4) positive self-concept; (5) importance of physical education and other closely related fields in the world of work; (6) cultural differences and values; (7) conceptual understandings relating to participation in physical activity; (8) physically active lifestyle; and (9) creative and aesthetic aspects of movement. Each area is subdivided into instructional objectives which are stated in terms of desired student behavior. A code signifies the appropriate grade level of instruction for each instructional objective. (FG)
