COURSE DESCRIPTION:

What does a Standard’s Based Curriculum look like in the physical education classroom?  This course was designed to assist K-12 educators to understand, develop and create their own standards based curriculum.

After exploring the definition and purpose of standards based curriculum this course will begin the process of designing a standards-based PE curriculum by developing goals that are based on a sound philosophy and reflect a teacher’s own beliefs and values. 

During this course participants will also explore assessment and the importance of documenting how students in PE are progressing toward achieving the standards. When taking this course you will learn how to provide all students with opportunities to achieve their learning goals through challenging and motivating choices.
