Most students think taking illegal drugs causes problems for users as well as society and want their universities to take a tougher stance The Higher Education Policy Institute and the University of Buckingham have worked with YouthSight on a survey of attitudes towards drugs among full-time undergraduate students. The two studies have different methodologies:
Its role in human health was quickly recognized. By the turn of the 20th century, personal hygiene and exercise for bodily health were incorporated in the physical education curriculum as the major learning outcomes for students Weston, The exclusive focus on health, however, was criticized by educator Thomas Wood ; Wood and Cassidy, as too narrow and detrimental to the development of the whole child.
During the past 15 years, physical education has once again evolved to connect body movement to its consequences e.
This perspective is also emphasized by Siedentopwho states that physical education is education through the physical. Sallis and McKenzie stress two main goals of physical education: These goals represent the lifelong benefits of health-enhancing physical education that enable children and adolescents to become active adults throughout their lives.
This goal dictates a learning environment in which seated learning behavior is considered appropriate and effective and is rewarded. Physical education as part of education provides the only opportunity for all children to learn about physical movement and engage in physical activity.
As noted, its goal and place in institutionalized education have changed from the original focus on teaching hygiene and health to educating children about the many forms and benefits of physical movement, including sports and exercise. With a dramatic expansion of content beyond the original Swedish and German gymnastics programs of the 19th century, physical education has evolved to become a content Page Share Cite Suggested Citation: Educating the Student Body: The National Academies Press.
To understand physical education as a component of the education system, it is important to know that the education system in the United States does not operate with a centralized curriculum. Physical education is influenced by this system, which leads to great diversity in policies and curricula.
These expanded waiver and substitution policies discussed in greater detail later in the chapter increase the possibility that students will opt out of physical education for nonmedical reasons. Curriculum Models Given that curricula are determined at the local level in the United States, encompassing national standards, state standards, and state-adopted textbooks that meet and are aligned with the standards, physical education is taught in many different forms and structures.
Various curriculum models are used in instruction, including movement education, sport education, and fitness education. In terms of engagement in physical activity, two perspectives are apparent. First, programs in which fitness education curricula are adopted are effective at increasing in-class physical activity Lonsdale et al.
A paucity of nationally representative data is available with which to demonstrate the relationship between the actual level of physical activity in which students are engaged and the curriculum models adopted by their schools.
Movement Education Movement has been a cornerstone of physical education since the s. Exemplary works and curriculum descriptions include those by Laban himself Laban, and others e.
Over time, however, the approach shifted from concern with the inner attitude of the mover to a focus on the function and application of each movement Abels and Bridges, In the s, the intent of movement education was to apply four movement concepts to the three domains of learning i.
The four concepts were body representing the instrument of the action ; space where the body is moving ; effort the quality with which the movement is executed ; and relationships the connections that occur as the body moves—with objects, people, and the environment; Stevens-Smith, These standards emphasize the need for children to know basic movement concepts and be able to perform basic movement patterns.
It is imperative for physical educators to foster motor success and to provide children with a basic skill set that builds their movement repertoire, thus allowing them to engage in various forms of games, sports, and other physical activities see also Chapter 3.
Sport Education One prevalent physical education model is the sport education curriculum designed by Daryl Siedentop Siedentop, ; Siedentop et al.
The model entails a unique instructional structure featuring sport seasons that are used as the basis for planning and teaching instructional units. Students are organized into sport organizations teams and play multiple roles as team managers, coaches, captains, players, referees, statisticians, public relations staff, and others to mimic a professional sports organization.
Depending on the developmental level of students, the games are simplified or modified to encourage maximum participation. In competition, students play the roles noted above in addition to the role of players.
A sport education unit thus is much longer than a conventional physical education unit.
Siedentop and colleagues recommend 20 lessons per unit, so that all important curricular components of the model can be implemented.
Findings from research on the sport education model have been reviewed twice.
In a more recent review, Hastie and colleagues report on emerging evidence suggesting that the model leads to improvement in cardiorespiratory fitness only one study and mixed evidence regarding motor skills development, increased feeling of enjoyment in participation in physical education, increased sense of affiliation with the team and physical education, and positive development of fair-play values.Northwestern University scientists and students are working to unravel some of her mysteries, including how her body was prepared 1, years ago in Egypt, what items she may have been buried with, the quality of her bones and what material is present in her brain cavity.
