The New P.E.
Vandertie, Joan; Corner, Amy B.; Corner, Kevin J.
Phi Delta Kappan, v93 n7 p21-25 Apr 2012
Marana Middle School in Tucson, Ariz., scrapped its traditional P.E. program that emphasized team sports and shifted to a program that focuses on lifetime fitness, student choice in activities, and nutrition and health education. The program also includes student leadership development and informal community service. As a result, Marana students have become more active. Some days, 40 or more kids participate in lunchtime intramural programs. Participation in after-school P.E. offerings has also increased.
