• BCSD Physical Education

    The goal of physical education is to develop physically literate individuals who have the knowledge, skills, and confidence to enjoy a lifetime of physical activity. To develop a physically active lifestyle, a physically literate individual

    • has learned the skills necessary to perform a variety of physical activities,

    • is physically fit,

    • participates regularly in physical activity,

    • knows the implications of and the benefits from involvement in physical activities, and

    • values physical activity and its contribution to a healthy lifestyle.

    The rationale for physical education programs is to provide student the opportunity to acquire skills needed to make positive decision about a healthy, physically active lifestyle. A student’s growth and development is guided through quality participation in the psychomotor, cognitive, and affective domains of learning.  Program goals are determined by the three major domains of learning.

    Psychomotor domain:

    · Includes the development of all physical skills through the application and physiological and biomechanical principles

    · Motor and fitness skills provide students with the tools necessary for continued participation in leisure and recreational activities

    Cognitive domain:

    · Includes knowledge, understanding, and application of information necessary for choosing activities for a healthy lifestyle

    · Individual and group activities foster the acquisition of skill in problem solving, decision making and creativity

    · Cultural knowledge and history of activities is gained through learning rules, games, strategies and etiquette

    Affective domain:

    · Includes social learning in development skills essential for positive group interaction and communication

    · Respect for self and others is learned through competitive and cooperative actions of good sportsmanship and fair play
