Physical Education

Scope and Sequence

Physical education provides opportunities for students to gain current knowledge of physical fitness facts, healthful living practices, leisure time pursuits, stress management techniques, and to receive instruction in the skills necessary for successful participation in activities necessary for optimum health and physical efficiency. 
Physical education is an academic discipline, an essential portion of the General Education process. Further, the physical education curriculum is centered on the concept that movement skills, intellectual development, physical fitness and healthful living practices are elements of life that must be taught and reinforced. Specific knowledge, skills and practice techniques that best benefit the student do not just happen. Instruction, analysis, and evaluation by a credentialed professional is essential for implementing this philosophy. 

Program Student Learning Outcomes

1. Articulate the differences between Physical Education and Athletics.
2. Recognize the potential for service to the individual, community, and society provided by Physical Education and Athletics. 
3. Describe the role of P.E./Kinesiology as an academic discipline and its role in health promotion and disease prevention. 
4. Demonstrate knowledge of functional human anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics, and demonstrate proficiency in a variety of physical activity skills. 
5. Develop appropriate physical training programs for adults based on demonstrated knowledge of coronary risk factor analysis, exercise prescription and nutritional guidelines established by industry standards.

In general, this matrix will serve as a pacer for the introduction, development, and pacing of all physical education games/ sports/ activities. This schedule should be followed as close as possible.

For the PE activities that are themed around sports/ athletic games, they will contain the following 4 components as a minimum.
1.    Introduction and explanation of the game
2.    Skill development
3.    Team Play
4.    Tournament


For those PE activities that are supplemental or themed around fitness, they will contain the following components at a minimal.
1.    Introduction and explanation of purpose for the body
2.    Beginner Activity
3.    Intermediate activity
4.    Advanced activity


We currently have materials that allow for written material and exams that cover a variety of activities. We also have copies of the pacer test that will need to be implemented. Documents will be provided for you to review to integrate this into your PE classes.

Attendance

Each PE teacher is expected to take attendance daily. I would suggest having one student run the names of any missing students to the office. In addition, each PE teacher will be required to do attendance on Schoology. At the end of the quarter, a copy will need to be submitted to the department chair.

Grading

Each PE teacher will be required to keep grades. My suggestion is that a gradebook is used as the master copy, and Schoology is then updated every two weeks using the gradebook. At the end of the quarter, a copy will need to be submitted to the department chair.

PE will be graded using the following point value system:

Dress

Full Dress - Fenwick Gym Uniform with appropriate shoes = 5 points per day
Partial Dress - Missing Fenwick Gym Shorts/Shirt, but has one of these items with appropriate shoes = 3 points per day
No Dress - Did not dress in Fenwick Gym Uniform at all including gym shoes = 0 points per day

Participation

Full Participation/ highly engaged = 5 pts. Per day
Partial Engagement = 3 pt. per day
No Participation = 0 pts. per day

Written Component

Worksheet assignments will count for 5-10 points.
Activity assessments will count for 30-40 points.
Note: In season athletes that have PE ARE required to participate.
