Health and Physical Education
Health education and physical education are the building blocks for enabling children to become literate in lifelong health and physical fitness.
The Society for Health and Physical Educators (SHAPE) states quality PE consists of four components:
- There is a clear opportunity for learning of movement and health-related concepts
- The curriculum has meaningful and relevant content and standards
- PE best practice instruction is provided.
- Standards-based assessments for students in the PE program are on-going and continually evaluated.
