A Prescription for Wellness and a Happy, Healthy Life Physical Education and the Brookings School Program
A Prescription... 4 Our mission statement 4 How our mission relates to our curriculum and state and national standards 4 What a typical class looks like 4 The products of our program 4 A schematic representation of the program 4 The importance of our content in the districts curriculum model
Smart Moves Why Learning is Not All in Your Head by Dr. Carla Hannaford
Cross Crawl 4 Touch the right elbow to the left knee 4 touch the left elbow to the right knee 4 perform this VERY SLOWLY
Energy Yawn 4 Find the joint right in front of the ear opening where the lower jaw meets the upper jaw 4 let your lower jaw drop slightly 4 massage the muscles around this joint
An Integrated Education 4 When you are practicing preventive medicine, you make sure that ALL facets of the persons well-being are covered 4 In educating a child, it is very important to remember all the ingredients for success - you cant NOT educate one part and expect the rest to turn out OK
OUR MISSION STATEMENT We believe that physical education should enable students to be efficient, effective, knowledgeable movers for their lifetime.
HAS learned skills necessary to perform a variety of physical activities 4 Current research suggests that if children do not reach a degree of competence and confidence in fundamental movement skills by the sixth grade, they will not engage in regular physical activity or sports for the rest of their lives.
IS physically fit 4 The Surgeon General has declared that childhood obesity is at epidemic levels in the United States. 4 Only 25% of children and young people participate in any type of daily physical activity that will lead to an active and healthy adult lifestyle.
DOES participate regularly in physical activity 4 Physical education classes for middle schoolers in California provided students a total of only 25 minutes of vigorous activity per week. 4 A study of third and fourth graders showed engagement in vigorous physical activity only occurring 36% of the class time. 4 60% of Americans are not regularly active and 25% are not active at all.
KNOWS the implications of and the benefits from involvement in physical activities 4 Many of us recognize that when one part of us is not well, nothing seems to flow in our lives. 4 Many of us also recognize that when we are at our best we are active, alert, challenged, and ready to meet the world.
VALUES physical activity and its contributions to a healthy lifestyle 4 The Center for Disease Control warns that obesity accounts for more than 300,000 premature deaths, which is second only to tobacco as a cause of mortality. 4 People value their life, as well as the lives of those around them.
4 What our students will know includes –benefits of regular participation in physical activity –that wellness involves more than being physically fit –that participating in regular physical activity can lead to opportunities for enjoyment, self- expression and better communication with those in their world
What would you see in a typical day in our program? 4 Elementary 4 Middle School 4 High School
Elementary Program Focus 4 Fitness development 4 Fundamental movement skill development, refinement and mastery
Middle School Program Focus 4 Continue to reinforce the HAS, IS, and DOES 4 Begin awareness of the KNOWS and VALUES 4 Master and maintain the fundamental movements taught at the elementary level 4 Exploration of new movements and interests
High School Program Focus 4 Program reinvented 2 years ago 4 Reflects the 5 components of a physically educated person 4 non-graded program; emphasis is on setting, assessment and meeting personal activity goals 4 we have actually seen a rise in the numbers of students participating in our classes!
South Dakota and National Physical Education Standards 4 Students will –develop competency in all fundamental movement skills and proficiency in some movement forms –analyze scientific concepts and principles to understand, evaluate and enhance movement skill acquisition and performance 4 Students will –demonstrate competency in many movement forms and proficiency in a few movement forms –apply movement concepts and principles to the learning and development of motor skills –exhibit a physically active lifestyle
4 Students will –participate in physical activity to achieve and maintain a health enhancing level of physical fitness –develop responsible and respectful personal and social behavior in physical activity settings –understand that physical activity provides opportunities for enjoyment, challenge, self- expression, social interaction and employment 4 Students will –achieve and maintain a health-enhancing level of physical fitness –demonstrate responsible and social behavior in physical activity settings –demonstrate understanding and respect for differences among people in physical activity settings –understand that physical activity provides opportunities for enjoyment, challenge, self- expression and social interaction
