The Hopkins Physical Education staff is committed to the Physical Education Model Content Standards for California Public Schools.
The Physical Education Model Content Standards for California Public Schools affirms the standing of physical education as an academic content area. The standards highlight the fact that participation in physical activity is not the same as learning the content in physical education. Every grade- and course-level standard should be taught and assessed for student learning. With adequate instruction and sustained effort, every student should be able to achieve the standards; however, some students with special needs may require appropriate accommodations, adaptations, or modifications to meet the standards. Decisions about how students achieve mastery of the model content standards are best left to teachers, schools, and local educational agencies.
The five overarching model content standards for elementary and middle school students are as follows:
Overarching Standard 1: Students demonstrate the motor skills and movement patterns needed to perform a variety of physical activities.
Overarching Standard 2: Students demonstrate knowledge of movement concepts, principles, and strategies that apply to the learning and performance of physical activities.
Overarching Standard 3: Students assess and maintain a level of physical fitness to improve health and performance.
Overarching Standard 4: Students demonstrate knowledge of physical fitness concepts, principles, and strategies to improve health and performance.
Overarching Standard 5: Students demonstrate and utilize knowledge of psychological and sociological concepts, principles, and strategies that apply to the learning and performance of physical activity.
