What is Physical Education?

There is a grave difference between Physical Education, physical activity, and athletics.

The intent of Physical Education is to help students learn the skills necessary for performing a variety of physical activities and understand the benefits of achieving and maintaining a physically active Lifestyle.

Physical Education is defined as a planned, sequential program of curricula and instruction that helps students develop the knowledge, attitudes, motor skills, self-management skills, and confidence needed to adopt and maintain physically active and healthy Lifestyles.

A quality Physical Education program includes:

  • ​Curriculum that aligns with state learning standards and outcomes for Health and Physical Education
  • Curriculum is taught by a certified Health and Physical Education teacher.
  • Appropriate time and space for students to learn and practice skills, with appropriate supplies.
  • Instruction and assessment in the cognitive, affective, and psychomotor domains.

Physical Educationprograms are the one placethat:

  • ALLchildren can participate in regular physical activity.
  • ALLchildren can become physically educated for a Lifetime of physical activity.

Physical Education should be treated with the same level of professional concern as other essential academic disciplines and learning environments.

Why is Physical Education essential?

Inactivity is the leading cause of preventable death.

​Physical activity and exercise is the application of what is learned in Physical Education class.

Quality Physical Educationprograms are important because they provide learning experiences that meet children's developmental needs, which in turn helps to improve mental alertness, academic performance, and enthusiasm for learning.

In the same way that exercise benefits the muscles, heart, lungs, and bones, it also strengthens key areas of the brain.

Children in daily physical activity have shown superior academic performance and more positive attitudes towards school.

A well-designed Physical Education program will promote a Lifelong physically active Lifestyle that can enhance longevity and Quality of Life.

What is not Physical Education?

The terms "Physical Education" and "physical activity" seem to be used interchangeably by many people, however, they are quite different.

Physical activity is defined by the Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as any bodily movement produced by the contraction of skeletal muscles resulting in energy expenditure.

Exercise is a subset of physical activity that is planned, structured, and repetitive, and is done to improve or maintain physical fitness.

Recess provides unstructured play opportunities that allow children to engage in physical activities, however as normally provided, it cannot be used to meet the requirement of an average of 100 instructional minutes per week of Physical Education.


Athletics are nota replacement for Physical Education!

Athletics is defined as an active sport that requires physical exertion and competition and involves a contest between athletes.

While athletics typically focuses on one sport, Physical Education will teach knowledge of skills and concepts necessary for safe and healthy Living and in turn, for successful learning.

Athletics are optional and does not promote participation by ALL students.

Philosophies

Full inclusion  refers to the fact that all children, regardless of current ability level and/or adaptive needs, should participate and succeed in sports and exercise.  Everyone shares the ball with everyone because the point of this program is not to teach students how to dominate and win, rather how to use collaboration and sharing to achieve communal success.  In PE for EveryBody, everyone participates the entire class period, nobody sits out unless a break is requested.

Ability perspective refers to the fact that all children possess inherent talents and skills and that those inherent abilities should be identified, strengthened, and highlighted by the Physical Education specialist to build confidence and self-esteem.

Potential seeking process  refers to the fact that a great teacher should focus on a child's potential rather than current ability and/or deficiency.  Great teachers should seek potential and draw greatness out of a child who did not see that potential or believe in that greatness.  A great teacher should be able to teach anybody anything that he/she can do.  Our focus is on what you can do and are capable of, not what you can't do.

The goal here is to dispel the popular misconception of "I can't play a sport(s) because I'm not good and don't know how" by teaching EveryBody "how".
