Lytle, Rebecca; Lavay, Barry; Rizzo, Terry
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance (JOPERD), v81 n2 p40-44, 50 Feb 2010
This article presents information related to the new position statement on the definition of a "highly qualified adapted physical education teacher" published by the Adapted Physical Activity Council (a council of the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance). It discusses the legal references for "highly qualified" teachers under federal special education law, the recommended content knowledge and skills expected from a highly qualified adapted physical education (APE) teacher, and the criteria for a highly qualified APE teacher. The article also includes a simple checklist that teachers and schools can use to evaluate their own program to determine potential areas for improvement. (Contains 1 figure and 3 tables.)
