Missouri's Framework for Curriculum Development in Health Education and Physical Education (Healthy, Active Living) K-12.
Missouri State Dept. of Elementary and Secondary Education, Jefferson City.
The "Missouri Framework for Curriculum Development" is designed to provide school districts with a "frame" for building curricula based on the "Show Me Standards." The 73 "Show Me Standards" define what students should know and be able to do by the time they graduate from Missouri's public high schools. This guide begins with an explanation of the curriculum frameworks and the Show Me Standards, followed by an overview of health education and physical education in Missouri. Then, using a three-column format, five major strands of the health and physical education framework are described: (1) functions and interrelationships of systems; (2) health maintenance and enhancement; (3) risk assessment and reduction; (4) efficiency of human movement and performance; and (5) physical activity and lifetime wellness. A glossary of selected framework terms is provided. Two appendixes provide: examples of student work; and samples of health and physical education scope and sequence, developmentally appropriate physical education practices for children, and an exemplary physical education program.
