2016

  

This document was written to correlate and align the Gateway Group Schools’ Health/ Physical Education Curriculum with the New Jersey Student Learning Standards for Comprehensive Health and Physical Education of 2014.  The foundation for this document is reflective of the New Jersey Model Curriculum.

 

 

The Student Learning Objectives (SLO) for each unit provide clear learning targets for student achievement and mastery.   Each unit contains scaffolding to monitor achievement and mastery through each grade level contained in the grade band.

Based on the NJDOE Model Curriculum for Comprehensive Health /Physical Education and Gateway Group Curriculum Consortium

 

Intent and Spirit of the Comprehensive Health and

Physical Education Standards

All students participate in a comprehensive, sequential, health and physical education program that emphasizes the natural interdisciplinary connection between wellness and health and physical education. The standards provide a blueprint for curriculum development, instruction, and assessment that reflects the latest research-based platform for effective health and physical education programs. The primary focus of the standards is on the development of knowledge and skills that influence healthy behaviors within the context of self, family, school, and the local and global community. The 2014 revised standards incorporate the current thinking and best practices found in health and physical education documents published by national content-specific organizations as well as public health and other education organizations and agencies.

Physical Education Overview for the Model Curriculum Units

 

The Physical Education Units are a cohesive set of five units that will scaffold instruction from one grade level to the next.  The units have been developed as building blocks of skills and concepts that will move instruction from one unit to the next.  All units are made up of a blended set of standards and cumulative progress indicators that fully encapsulate the major ideas and themes behind the unit.  The incorporation of different standards through major, supporting and additional concepts provide a greater opportunity for comprehensive Physical Education instruction in each unit.  In grades K-5 the units will progress from basic movement education to developing and applying manipulative skills in various isolated and applied situations such as physical fitness and activity, individual skill development, and cooperative activities. In grades 6-8 the units  progress from wellness education (fitness concepts and activities) to developing and applying movement education skills in isolated and applied situations in various activities such as individual skill development, team activities and strategies and cooperative activities.

Comprehensive Health Overview for the Model Curriculum Units

 

The grades K-6 Comprehensive Health Education Units are a cohesive set of four units that will scaffold instruction from one grade level to the next.  The units are made up of a blended set of standards and cumulative progress indicators that fully encapsulate the major ideas and themes behind the unit.  The incorporation of different standards through major, supporting and additional concepts provide a greater opportunity for comprehensive health instruction in each unit.   Students will begin the year with a Wellness unit that blends general health skills involving topics such as hygiene, nutrition and physical activity.  Units will then progress to develop decision making skills which will be applied in various situations in later units involving physical activity, alcohol, tobacco, drugs, relationships,  interpersonal communication,  and character development.
