Best Practices

Quality physical education is more than just keeping students physically active.  Quality physical education supports the development of students' physical literacy.  This doesn't happen on accident.

The resources on this page describe what quality physical education looks like.  Both the Best Practices Brochure and the Observation Guide describe instructional practice that focuses on a specific learning outcome, engaging students rigorously with content, strategically structuring instruction, providing students with critical feedback and collecting evidence of student learning.
