Studying the historical antecedents of physical education and sport typically forms part of the curriculum of physical education teacher education (PETE) programs in U.S. colleges and universities. These courses commonly use a survey model, briefly examining the development of organized physical education and sport practices and programs from prehistoric times to the present. Considering the breadth of such courses, both in terms of detail and extent of body of knowledge, the National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) has prepared these guidelines to provide PETE students with theoretical and practical knowledge about the history of the discipline. This document is intended to provide a template for faculty members teaching PETE students, and it identifies minimum competencies for students pursuing careers in this field.
