I Can--Achievement Based Curriculum (ABC): Purpose, Development and Teacher Training.
Kelly, Luke E.
The I CAN--Achievement-Based Curriculum (ABC) project is designed to train regular and special education teachers and regular physical educators to implement individualized, assessment-based instruction of the physical and motor needs of handicapped students in their classes. The ABC is a process model for training teachers how to plan, assess, implement, and evaluate instruction. Teachers first learn the ABC model in order to effectively use the "I CAN" resource materials. The "I CAN" resource materials are designed to cover the scope (primary through secondary) and essential content typically addressed in physical education, with accommodations made for students functioning at a wide range of levels (zero competency to advanced). The program is competency-based for both the teachers and their students. Certified trainers conduct workshops on assessing students' performance levels, prescribing instructional activities, teaching individualized instruction in group settings, and evaluating student change and program effectiveness. Teachers are subsequently monitored on their implementation competencies, and receive feedback. The program's performance objectives cover such areas of motor development as aquatics, locomotor skills, body awareness, physical fitness, dance, team sports, individual/dual sports, and outdoor activities. The appendices include a list of training and resource materials, an outline of student performance objectives, and a set of resource materials for the performance of the overhand throw. (JDD)
