We are excited about your interest in taking this graduate level course entitled "Designing Standards-Based K-12 Physical Education Lesson Plans" from PE Central. Below you will find a course description, the instructor's biography, and course FAQ's. This course will last 8 weeks and, if you wish, you can apply for 3 optional graduate credits (an additional $165) from Adams State University located in Alamosa, Colorado. You will need to purchase the book required for this course on your own. It is highly recommended you have the book in your possession on the date the course starts.
An asynchronous, online eLearning course written in storyboard format that sequences learning by relating concepts from one week to the next. Content for instructional strategies focus on designing K-12 physical education lesson plans that are standards-based (National Standards for K-12 PE, SHAPE America, 2013).
Authentic instruction is used to ensure participants engage in higher-order thinking (HOTS) to deepen knowledge; making learning meaningful by connecting content to real-world experiences beyond the classroom. To secure authentic learning, participants will be required to post weekly discussions and submit a weekly journal and assignment (resources will be provided).
COURSE STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES:
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
- State the “new” and ultimate goal of physical education.
- Define characteristics of the “teaching for learning approach”.
- Link academics and physical activity.
- Create physical education unit and lesson plan templates that are developmentally appropriate.
- Apply standards and outcomes when designing units and lesson plans that are based on the National Standards and Grade-Level Outcomes for K-12 Physical Education (SHAPE, 2013).
- Use assessments as a means to determine student learning and provide evidence of the physical education curriculum effectiveness.

Participants will construct knowledge while collaborating with the instructor and their peers.
By the end of the discussion, participants will have,
D1-contrast the Teaching for Learning approach to the Activity-Based
Approach by discussing with the instructor/peers four key characteristics for each
D2-described instructional alignment by discussing with the instructor/peers four components.

Participants will be introduced to facilitative questioning; generating their own solutions to
authentic problems or tasks (there is no right or wrong answer).
By the time the Journal entry is submitted, participants will have:
Week 1: defend the appropriateness of using external incentives to foster student
motivation by referring to research.
Week 2: explain the importance of developmentally appropriate content by considering positive and safe learning opportunities for all students.

Week 4: explore instructional styles for effective teaching.
Week 5: support using fitness testing.
Week 6: elaborate on tips for providing feedback to students.
Week 7: prepare a plan to provide students the opportunity to voice their thoughts, feelings, and perspectives within their learning environment.
Week 8: evaluate the course design in meeting student learning outcomes and the instructor teaching strategies.
Participants will be introduced to a variety of scaffolded instructional strategies:
- Unit/Lesson Plan: SMART Objectives
- Audio-Visual Lesson Plan
- RSQC2: Recall, Summarize, Question, Comment and Connect
- Grammy Award/Muddiest Point
By the time the Assignment is submitted, participants will have:
Week 1: created a ten-slide PowerPoint presentation recognizing research-based evidence that link academics to physical literacy.
Week 2: generated a newsletter that reveals decisions made for a user-friendly lesson plan template.
Week 3: applied grade-level outcomes designing a lesson aligning with Standard 1.
Week 4: critiqued an audio-visual of a lesson plan aligning with Standard 2.
Week 5: recalled, summarized, questioned, connected and commented (RSQC2) a lesson plan aligning with Standard 3.
Week 6: compared the Grammy Award to that of the Muddiest Point when designing lesson plans aligning with Standard 4.
Week 7: designed a lesson plan aligning with Standard 5.
Week 8: addressed course information presented by describing “three” areas of content you have mastered, “two” examples of how you will implement content presented and “one” area of content you are excited like to learn more about..
