The Scope & Sequence of Fitness Education for PreK-16 Programs: NASPE Fitness Education Project
National Association for Sport and Physical Education
In May 2006, the National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) received funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Division of Adolescent and School Health to improve the quality and quantity of physical education and physical activity programs across the United States. The cooperative agreement project provides professional development, technical assistance and resources to state and local education organizations to assist them in improving their physical education and physical activity programs. In 2009, after a competitive process, NASPE awarded funding to a team of content experts to develop a scope and sequence publication delineating what should be taught in fitness education to students in grades K-16. After an exhaustive analysis of existing resources and standards, the research team has completed this scope and sequence document. A glossary is included.
