Physical Education - Grade 8 Intermediate Team Sports [Fall 2016]
Core Standards of the Course
Students will achieve a level of competency in motor skills and movement patterns.
Students in grade eight will continue to participate in a variety of instructional physical activities. Experiences increase complexity in content, concept and skill development for a broad spectrum of activities. Students continue to practice skills in modified games, but increasingly participate in activities that are regulation games with more complex playing environments. This class incorporates more in-depth instruction training principles that can enhance health-related fitness as students progress in achieving personal fitness goals.
Combine manipulative skills while working with a partner or within a small group (e.g., hit a ball and run to base, dribble and shoot a basketball while being guarded, catch and throw a Frisbee).
Students will apply knowledge to attain efficient movement and performance.
Students will use tactics utilizing space, pathways, shapes, levels, speed, direction, force, and strategy for effective movement in an activity setting. Students will utilize defensive and offensive strategies to gain advantage in a game setting.
Students will understand the components necessary to maintain a healthy level of fitness to support physical activity.
Students will identify the components of designing, monitoring, and evaluating physical fitness, understanding the importance of attention to minimal fitness needs and implementing essential components to maintaining a lifetime of fitness.
Assess personal level of fitness and maintain a basic exercise plan, including all components of health related fitness (e.g., assessment of strength, muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurance, flexibility).
Using technology, provide skill feedback and analysis of movement (e.g., comparing the speed of approach and body position in the long jump, rotation of the trunk, and angle of release of the shot put).
Students will develop cooperative skills and positive personal behavior through communication and respect for self and others.
Students exhibit personal responsibility in a group setting by working well with others, accepting feedback, understanding how rules and etiquette contribute to a safe and enjoyable environment. Students will review outdoor pursuits and understand how setting is an important factor to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.
Students will appraise the personal value of physical activity as a tool for wellness, challenges, and interacting with appropriate social skills with friends and family.
Students understand that physical activity provides the opportunity for enjoyment, challenges, self-expression, and social interaction.
