Lifetime Health and Fitness. A Curriculum for Physical Education.
Oklahoma State Dept. of Education, Oklahoma City.
This document provides a framework by which Oklahoma local school districts can develop their curriculum for physical education. Designed for grades K-12, it offers a foundation for appropriate physical education practices linked to the Priority Academic Student Skills (PASS) national standards and benchmarks for each of three goals: motor skill and lifetime activity; health-enhancing activity development; and personal and social skill development. The curriculum is based on developmentally appropriate practices in curriculum content and instruction, with a special emphasis on assessment at each grade level, as well as ideas for use of technology in the physical education setting. The suggested activities and subject integration areas represent a sample of developmentally appropriate activities aligned with each specific goal at each of the different grade levels. For each grade level, the document presents suggested activities and an assessment checklist related to the three goal areas. (SM)
