Instructional Framework for Fitness Education in Physical Education. Guidance Document
National Association for Sport and Physical Education
The National Association for Sport and Physical Education's (NASPE) Fitness Education Project team gathered insights from professionals across the country who have worked on national and state physical education standards and district curriculum materials; from content and pedagogy specialists; and from current literature to provide what follows: a comprehensive Instructional Framework for Fitness Education in Physical Education (IFFEPE). The purpose of IFFEPE is to suggest what students should understand and be able to do at specific grade levels, focusing on helping students adopt a healthy lifestyle during the PreK to 16th years of education. The development of the IFFEPE assumes that a health-enhancing level of physical fitness is attainable for all students through regular engagement in moderate to vigorous physical activity, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity or cultural background. The IFFEPE is designed for all students. The content included in the IFFEPE was developed holistically; all areas are important and should be included in fitness education. Overall, this proposed IFFEPE should be integrated into an existing physical education curriculum with full or partial lessons that address the identified fitness content at individual grade levels.
