Discovering the Hidden Treasures of Physical Best and Fitnessgram
Wilson, Patti
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v24 n4 p25-29 Mar-Apr 2011
Physical Best and Fitnessgram have a 25-year history, yet many physical educators have yet to be exposed to their full potential. Exploring the Physical Best Activity Guide worksheets and the "Reports" section of Fitnessgram is like finding buried treasure in one's own back yard. These hidden treasures can help physical educators incorporate the NASPE standards and allow for individualization of the physical education program to best meet the needs not only of the individual students, but also the needs of physical educators and curriculum developers. This article provides four examples of the treasures found under the Fitnessgram "Reports" section as well as suggestions for how to incorporate them in physical education and other academic programs. Along with each suggestion is identification of the NASPE Physical Education Standard being met. (Contains 4 figures and 1 table.)
