Positive PE

This course is designed to provide students the opportunity for an inclusive environment that takes place in a physically active setting.  Our students who qualify for special education (Athletes) will be merged with our students in general education (Coaches) to participate in a physical education class.  Students will have the opportunity for hands-on experiences in the teaching process while developing knowledge and skills that promotes a variety of fitness opportunities.  We will focus on balance/flexibility, muscular strength, cardiovascular endurance, coordination, and moving in space.  Throughout the semester we will also work to improve and build sensory development, gross and fine motor skills, communication and social skills.  Game play will be offered throughout each unit where all students are engaged in cooperative learning, team/partner work and building social interactions. It is our hope that after this class, students will become lifelong advocates for fitness and wellness.
