Adapted Physical Education Curriculum Guide. Bulletin 1717.
Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge.
This curriculum guide provides usable, appropriate, and relevant materials for teachers working with mildly/moderately handicapped students. Each instructional unit contains a content outline representing the basic motor skills and cognitive areas considered appropriate for inclusion in an adapted physical education class. The number sequences in each outline correspond directly with actual performance objectives identified in the activity unit. Included in performance objectives are suggested age levels for the skill, which should be determined by the teacher's assessment of individual capabilities. Activity units include: (1) movement education; (2) physical fitness exercises; (3) body management; (4) individual and dual sports; (5) team sports; and (6) leisure activities. The use of this guide for students with sensory or orthopedic impairments may require additional modifications and adaptations in the method of presentation and/or the means by which the students demonstrate the skills depending upon their individual abilities.
