High School Health and Physical Education: Reinforcing the 3Rs
Moore, John
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), v84 n3 p46-47 Apr 2009
The ultimate goal of the education process should be to improve instruction and increase student learning. To effectively accomplish this would truly result in education reform. Therefore, the first step in bringing about education reform is to provide academic rigor, vocational relevance and curricula relationships in programs that students see as real. The health and physical education program at the Digital Arts and Technology Academy (DATA) in Albuquerque, New Mexico, utilizes the 3 Rs of rigor, relevance and relationships, which provide the philosophical underpinnings and the educational foundation of the program (Miles, 2005). This pragmatic approach has allowed DATA "to get real" with high school health and physical education students by actively involving them in their own education.
