    Course Description:

     

    Physical Education Course 1 curriculum is sequential, developmental and acknowledges individual patterns of physiological and psychological growth and delineated grade level expectations. It introduces 9th graders to the High School physical education experience and develops student knowledge, skills and values, which support student health literacy, wellness, efficient and expressive movement, self-discovery and social competence. The course will include instruction, learning, and assessment in the following content areas:

    • Effects of physical activity upon dynamic health (health related fitness)
    • Mechanics of body movement
    • Aquatics
    • Individual and dual sports
    • Team sports
    • Rhythms and Dance

    This course is designed for students in grade 9. During Course I, students will advance their movement skills in aquatics, rhythms/dance, and individual and dual activities. They will also seek to achieve a level of physical fitness that supports both their health, and performance goals.  Further, students will demonstrate their knowledge of psychological and sociological concepts and strategies that apply to the learning and performance of physical activity.  This course will also prepare students for the state mandated physical fitness test. All students enrolled in the course must demonstrate progress towards mastering the high school physical education content standards. This course is a prerequisite for Physical Education Course 2.

    • Students will learn the importance of physical education, physical fitness and how it relates to living healthy for a lifetime. 
    • Students will learn the major muscle’s actions and principles of exercise and how it relates to fundamental skills for individual activities throughout the school year.
