I hope everyone is enjoying their summer vacations. Vermont recently adopted the 2014 SHAPE America National Standards and Grade-Level Outcomes for Physical Education to replace 2004 Vermont Grade Expectations for Physical Education (PE). These new standards for PE empower Vermont educators to use the most current, best-practices in design of proficiency-based instruction and assessment for learning. Furthermore, this move enables use of directly-aligned, nationally-developed tools for assessment and curriculum evaluation with the goal of developing student physical literacy.
Mr. G was on VPR Thursday July 2nd to talk about the recent shift in physical education. If you have a chance check out the podcast by clicking on the link Let's Get Physical: New Standards for P.E.
