Colorado Model Content Standards for Physical Education.
Colorado State Dept. of Education, Denver.
This booklet presents three model content standards for physical education in the state of Colorado, noting that there must be developmentally appropriate physical education programs for all students, from the physically gifted to the physically challenged. Physical education provides opportunities for students to participate in activities that promote wellness. As a result of physical education, students are more likely to be better prepared as productive students, workers, and contributors to their communities and organizations within society. The success of attaining physical education standards directly relates to student contact time, appropriate equipment, class size, and available facilities. The three Colorado model content standards are: (1) students must demonstrate competent skills in a variety of physical activities and sports, (2) students must demonstrate competency in physical fitness, and (3) students must demonstrate the knowledge of factors important to participation in physical activity. This booklet provides a rationale for each standard, explains what is needed to meet the standard, and breaks the standard down by grade level (K-4, 5-8, and 9-12). A glossary of terms is included. (Contains 10 references.) (SM)
