We are excited for the inspiring year ahead!
I stumbled upon this video about some ways to up your student engagement in PE. Hope some of you find it useful.
We are in this together. . .
Before you leave for Winter Break today, please take a moment and subscribe to Health and Physical Education on Navigator. There are a ton of resources, lessons, activities and more on this website!! If you have an activity or lesson you would like to share with our Fayette County colleagues, please add it to the website.
Also, check out the In-Person Instructional Models some schools are using when we go back hopefully in 2021. Every school is different, but hopefully these models will help your school prepare.
Thanks for all you do in the Health and Physical Education world. Happy Holidays!
Physical education leads students on a journey to acquire the skills, knowledge, and attitudes to be active for a lifetime. FCPS physical education provides students with a variety of learning opportunities and experiences designed for exploration and self-discovery in physical activity pursuits.
In physical education we establish a safe, student-centered learning environment designed to maximize learning experiences for all students. In this environment students learn personal and social responsibility, motor skills, as well as key concepts and principles associated with movement. Students also learn valuable content associated with physical activity promotion, fitness, and health-related physical activity. Of particular importance are curricular materials linked to the affective domain. That is students learn the significance of self-expression, value physical activity, enjoy movement, and challenge themselves. These concepts are essential for making physical education meaningful. All content is taught using commonly accepted best practices in physical education pedagogy and physical activity motivation.
The curriculum unit frameworks, pacing guides, and FCPS Physical Education Framework materials provided in the Navigator outline the foundational components of content identified as necessary to meet the needs of our students. It is recognized that each school’s context will vary and thus physical education teachers may need to make modifications. It is also understood that all modifications will be made heeding to the fundamental purpose of physical education using recognized best practices in physical education.
