For physical educators who have struggled with complex and sometimes vague standards, Unpacking Physical Education Standards Digital Resource is an ideal tool.

The resource, created by three renowned veteran educators, translates state and national PE standards and grade-level outcomes into an easy-to-use, easy-to-understand format. The product offers PE and classroom teachers a series of performance indicators that are based on standards and that are easy to communicate to students and to parents, guardians, and caregivers.

The resource incorporates 16 ladder graphics that depict the skill progressions as rungs on a ladder. These ladder graphics can be printed and made into posters (to be posted, for example, in a gym, multipurpose room, or school hallway). Teachers will learn how to use the ladders to set goals and measure the progress and performance of students as they move through the progression of skills and physical activities. These ladders will also help teachers clearly communicate to parents and caregivers what their students are learning and how the skills and physical activities might be practiced in after-school, home, and community program settings.

In addition, Unpacking Physical Education Standards features approximately 25 photos and 6 video clips to show teachers and students the proper techniques for each skill to be assessed. Seeing proper form in action will help the students visualize what they need to do and facilitate the learning process. The skills they are learning provide the foundation for a lifetime of being active and all the benefits that come from a lifetime of physical activity.

This digital resource is a tremendous tool for physical educators and for parents and guardians who are educating their child in a homeschooling or remote learning situation. It can also be valuable for use in Boys & Girls Clubs, YMCAs, and other after-school programs. It is a valuable supplemental resource for PETE elementary methods courses and for elementary education majors.

For teachers who want a clear and simple breakdown of how to apply the PE standards to their programs—and effective ways to set goals, teach skills, and assess progress—Unpacking Physical Education Standards is the innovative tool they’ve been looking for.
