Upcycling Secondary Physical Education: The Journey to Creating Goal-Oriented Courses
Nye, Susan; Williams, Jacqueline
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v30 n5 p12-18 2017
The ultimate goal of a quality physical education program is to develop physically literate individuals who demonstrate skill competencies, apply knowledge, demonstrate health-enhancing behaviors, exhibit prosocial behaviors, and recognize the value of physical activity for a lifetime. The development and implementation of goal-oriented physical education courses is just one step toward the upcycling of secondary physical education. This article highlights the steps when developing quality secondary physical education courses that emphasize the learning of skills, knowledge and positive attitudes. By understanding the interconnectedness of planning, teaching, assessing and learning, a high-quality course can be developed to ensure student learning and student growth. The purpose of this article is to address the "upcycling" of secondary physical education through the development of goal-oriented courses.
