Developing More Effective Curriculum Via "Basic Stuff."
Heitmann, Helen M.
Discussed is the design and development of a physical education curriculum, incorporating principles discussed in the "Basic Stuff" physical education series. Four tasks are suggested for planning the curriculum: (1) develop a unit for activity instruction, where the concepts inherent in the sport or activity skills may be identified; (2) develop a unit around a global concept (such as "balance" or "life safety skills"); (3) develop disciplinary units to be taught to students in various grades; and (4) use the "Basic Stuff" format as the organizing center for curriculum construction. Attachments present model curriculum designs which contain: (1) statement of global goal; (2) learning goals; (3) concepts of the activity; (4) student activities; (5) classification of general principles inherent in the activity; and (6) terminal behavioral objectives. The models are for instruction in volleyball, organizing central balance, motor learning, life safety skills, and swimming. (JD)
