While skill-based instruction will always have it’s place in PE, a concept-driven curriculum provides students with the ‘big ideas’ necessary to become independent, lifelong learners. During this presentation, we will discuss the development of a quality, concept-based PE program. It’s components will include: A) Fundamentals of Movement- by teaching the basic dynamics of all movement (Locomotor vs. Non-locomotor, Levels, Speed, Force, Coordination, etc.) with enable students to understand the different ways our bodies can move and how we can change our movements in addition to developing a common language of movement used program wide, B) Standard-Based Concepts by Grade Level- by developing age-appropriate big ideas/ concepts for each standard you are working with, we can create a wholistic, horizontally and vertically aligned curriculum for students to acquire the tools necessary to be active for life, C) Assessment- creating student-centered, standards-based assessments to provide both students and teachers with feedback related to their learning journey.
