Course Discriptions

General High School Physical Education

The high school course descriptions presented here communicate the essence of the high
school physical education experience. The content articulates the knowledge, skills, and con-
fidence students need to maintain meaningful physical activity throughout their lifetime.
The course sequence provides a blueprint for delivering the content in a manner that equips
students to make a successful transition from the physical education instructional program to
participation in physical activity during adulthood. The adult lifestyle demands that individ-
uals initiate and monitor their own participation in physical activity. Family responsibilities,
career demands, and individual choices influence physical activity patterns.

High School Courses 1 and 2 provide the foundation for high school instruction. Students
develop proficient movement skills in each area of physical education; they expand their ca-
pabilities for independent learning; and they examine practices that allow for sound decision
making to enhance successful participation in movement activities.

High School Courses 3 and 4 are electives that provide students with the opportunity to
explore a variety of physical activities in search of one they can enjoy and participate in for a
lifetime.

Course 4 electives are designed as a continuation of Course 3 and are intended for stu-
dents who have completed Course 3 and who want an intensive experience in an activity
that they may wish to participate in for years to come.

Students will learn formal, choreographed “forms” as well as applicable skills in self-defense, both standing and on the ground. An emphasis on physical fitness will be woven throughout the curriculum, as successful martial artists must combine strength and endurance. Short lessons will address the historical and cultural roots of various martial arts forms. Additional written, oral and project-based assignments will explore the PE 10 themes of health (including nutrition, emotional and mental health), adaptive fitness, and lifelong fitness.
