Idaho K-12 Physical Education: Content Guide and Framework. - Download this document for free, or read online. Document in PDF available to download.

This framework has been designed to help Idaho elementary and secondary public schools develop their physical education curricula and programs and formulate realistic goals. The document represents a change from past approaches and one early section details some examples of how this guide is different from previous guides. Among these differences are a change from a curriculum driven by team sports and participation in large game play to a broad integrated curriculum that focuses on individual cognitive, psychomotor, and affective development. The guide includes pages on: definitions, overall goals for physical education, curricular frameworks, curricular alignment, an exit performance standards matrix, and mission and vision statements. The guidelines and framework are presented in three sections. The first is for kindergarten through 4th grade, the second for 5th through 8th grade, and the third for 9th through 12th grade. Each section includes grade benchmarks for the last grade in that section. For 12th grade there are exit performance standards. A final section lists 10 brief position statements. (JB)
