Physical Education. A Maryland Curricular Framework.
Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore.
This Maryland State Department of Education document is a guide for the assessment and development of comprehensive K-12 physical education programs in Maryland schools. The first section defines the nature of physical education and describes its relationship to society, the learner, and the school curriculum. The second section presents broad statements of goals, subgoals, and desired outcomes. In the next two sections, expectancies and illustrative objectives are outlined. Learning outcomes, primarily behavioral, which are appropriate for curricular emphasis within the subgoals, are discussed. Examples are also provided of the types of student achievements which might reflect subgoal and expectancy attainment at particular grade levels. The final section describes ways to develop and use goals, subgoals, expectancies, and objectives in the preparation of physical education scopes, sequences, and instructional units. The appendixes provide a list of Maryland Physical Education Framework Task Force and Framework consultants and Framework Review Panel members, the Maryland Physical Education Framework, the State K-8 physical education program requirements, a glossary, and illustrative objectives for all goal areas for each grade level.
