Elective PE - Life, Team, Weight Training
Elective  Physical  Education,  a  course  based  on  selected  standards  from  Indiana’s  Academic  Standards  for   Physical  Education,  identifies  what  a  student  should  know  and  be  able  to  do  as  a  result  of  a  quality  physical   education  program.  The  goal  of  a  physically  educated  student  is  to  maintain  appropriate  levels  of  cardio-­‐ respiratory  endurance,  muscular  strength  and  endurance,  flexibility,  and  body  composition  necessary  for  a   healthy  and  productive  life.  Elective  Physical  Education  promotes  lifetime  sport  and  recreational  activities  and   provides  an  opportunity  for  an  in-­‐depth  study  in  one  or  more  specific  areas.  A  minimum  of  two  of  the  following   activities  should  be  included:  team  sports;  dual  sports  activities;  individual  physical  activities;  outdoor  pursuits;   self-­‐defense  and  martial  arts;  aquatics;  gymnastics;  and  dance.  It  includes  the  study  of  physical  development   concepts  and  principles  of  sport  and  exercise  as  well  as  opportunities  to  develop  or  refine  skills  and  attitudes   that  promote  lifelong  fitness.  Students  have  the  opportunity  to  design  and  develop  an  appropriate  personal   fitness  program  that  enables  them  to  achieve  a  desired  level  of  fitness.  Ongoing  assessment  includes  both   written  and  performance-­‐based  skill  evaluation.  Individual  assessments  may  be  modified  for  individuals  with   disabilities,  in  addition  to  those  with  IEP’s  and  504  plans  (e.g.,  chronic  illnesses,  temporary  injuries,  obesity,  etc.).   See  511  IAC  7-­‐27-­‐9,  7-­‐27-­‐11.  Student must have earned both PE I/II credits.

Health and Wellness Education

Health  &  Wellness,  a  course  based  on  Indiana’s  Academic  Standards  for  Health  &  Wellness,  provides  the  basis  to   help  students  adopt  and  maintain  healthy  behaviors.  Health  education  should  contribute  directly  to  a  student’s   ability  to  successfully  practice  behaviors  that  protect  and  promote  health  and  avoid  or  reduce  health  risks.   Through  a  variety  of  instructional  strategies,  students  practice  the  development  of  functional  health  information (essential  concepts);  determine  personal  values  that  support  health  behaviors;  develop  group  norms  that  value   a  healthy  lifestyle;  develop  the  essential  skills  necessary  to  adopt,  practice,  and  maintain  health-­‐enhancing   behaviors.  This  course  includes  the  application  of  priority  areas  in  a  planned,  sequential,  comprehensive  health   education  curriculum.  Priority  areas  include:  promoting  personal  health  and  wellness,  physical  activity,  healthy   eating,  promoting  safety  and  preventing  unintentional  injury  and  violence,  promoting  mental  and  emotional   health,  a  tobacco-­‐free  lifestyle  and  an  alcohol-­‐  and  other  drug-­‐free  lifestyle  and  promoting  human  development   and  family  health.  This  course  provides  students  with  the  knowledge  and  skills  of  health  and  wellness  core   concepts,  analyzing  influences,  accessing  information,  interpersonal  communication,  decision-­‐making  and  goal-­‐ setting  skills,  health-­‐enhancing  behaviors,  and  health  and  wellness  advocacy  skills.  Grade 10.

Physical  Education  I/II focuses  on  instructional  strategies  through  a  planned,  sequential,  and  comprehensive   physical  education  curriculum  which  provide  students  with  opportunities  to  actively  participate  in  at  least  four   of  the  following:  team  sports;  dual  sport  activities;  individual  physical  activities;  outdoor  pursuits;  self-­‐defense   and  martial  arts;  aquatics;  gymnastics;  and  dance,  all  which  are  within  the  framework  of  lifetime  physical   activities  and  fitness.  Ongoing  assessment  includes  both  written  and  performance-­‐based  skill  evaluation.   Individual  assessments  may  be  modified  for  individuals  with  disabilities,  in  addition  to  those  with  IEP’s  and  504   plans  (e.g.,  chronic  illnesses,  temporary  injuries,  obesity,  etc.).  See  511  IAC  7-­‐27-­‐9,  7-­‐27-­‐11.  Grade 9.
