Data Focus
  • Core Standards 3,4 5
  • Over the past few years, the lack of fitness
    among our students, as well as the latest
    research linking fitness and brain function, has
    inspired many changes in our curriculum. We have
    now placed an even stronger emphasis on helping
    our students reach a healthy level of physical
    fitness.

4
Physical Fitness A Daily S.H.S Physical
Education Focus
  • Every day in class, we focus on activities that
    help students improve their areas of health
    fitness including cardiovascular function,
    muscular strength endurance, flexibility and
    body composition.
  • In the process, we are exposing students to a
    variety of exercises they can use in their own
    homes to improve personal fitness.

5
Benefits of Healthy Fitness / Exercise
  • Improved concentration
  • Brain cell growth
  • Decreased depression, stress, anxiety
  • Improved self-confidence
  • Improved test scores Cambridge Public Schools
    found a connection between fitness levels and
    MCAS scores.

6
Naperville School District
  • School District Highlighted in Book SPARK, by
    John J. Ratey, MD, Harvard Eric Hagerman (2008)
  • -Naperville School District 97 students
    healthy BMI
  • Zero hour am workouts for students, found
    connection between fitness levels test scores,
    began scheduling hardest classes after PE
  • One of first U.S. schools to compete with, and
    beat Singapore, China on international Math and
    Science exams

7
Titusville, PA
  • Added 10 min. school day, cut academic time for
    daily PE
  • Test scores improved from below state avg. to 17
    above in reading, 18 above in math
  • Not one physical fight since started program
  • (Source Ratey, J.J., Hagerman,E. (2008)

8
INCREASED DEMANDS TECHNOLOGY INACTIVITY IN
YOUTH
  • Deprogramming what bodies were designed to do for
    survival MOVE
  • Interestingly, only organisms that move have a
    brain.
  • In one of our project adventure community
    building activities, students were asked how many
    text messages they send/receive each day.
    Answers ranged from 200-1000.
  • Kaiser Family Foundation (2003, 2005) reports
    children watch nearly 4 hrs. TV, almost 2 hrs.
    computer or video games daily
  • 61.5 age 9-13 do not participate in any
    organized exercise non-school hours
  • (Pate et al. (2006))

ENCOURAGING S.H.S. PHYSICAL EDUCATION PROGRAM
NEWS
  • By the end of the semester every male and female
    who participated in both the Pre and Post test
    improved in at least one area of physical
    fitness.

PRE POST TEST IMPROVEMENTSBy the end of
semester of PE1
  • The following graph shows the breakdown of
    improvements by gender by the end of our semester
    PE 1 program. Note 66 of students improved in
    every category tested!!

13
FLEXIBILITY IMPROVEMENTS
  • Flexibility is a key component of fitness that is
    often overlooked among those lacking fitness
    knowledge.
  • A lack of fitness in this area accounts for many
    preventable injuries and health ailments.
  • Our students have been scoring very poorly in
    this area upon entering our PE1 program over the
    past years.
  • This past year, based on increased focus in our
    class, we have noticed great improvements.
  • In 2011, 55 of our students left our program
    still at risk in this are. In 2012, that
    number decreased by 16.

14
FLEXIBILITY PLAN (Implemented in 2012)
  • After extensive research, our PE students are now
    being trained on the most up to date techniques
    for improving flexibility through the use of
    Foam Rollers and Bands.
  • As a result, our post test scores dramatically
    improved
  • OVER 90 OF OUR STUDENTS IMPROVED THEIR
    FLEXIBILITY ON THE POST TEST!!!!!!!!!!

15
Work Still Needed To Help Our Students
  • Although improvements were significant, many
    students are still not meeting minimal fitness
    recommendations.
  • Furthermore, we will not see those students again
    for another year. After the second semester of
    their sophomore year, we will not see them again
    in a required PE class at SHS.

16
Goal for 2013-2014
  • Next year, although increasing flexibility
    training has proved to be effective, we now see a
    need to provide more education and experiences
    with cardiovascular and muscular strength
    training.

FUTURE GOALS OF OUR PHYSICAL EDUCATION
PROGRAM/REQUIRED PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
  • Have an opportunity to meet as a K-12 Wellness
    Staff to examine when student fitness declines
    are happening
  • Find a way to connect with students during
    unscheduled PE time Crossfit Training Program /
    Online Blog (training necessary)
  • Provide Physical Education Opportunities for our
    Juniors and Seniors

20
MIND BODY ONE BEING
  • In order for man to succeed in life, God provided
    him with two means, education and physical
    activity. Not separately, one for the soul and
    the other for the body, but for the two together.
  • -Plato

    (2008).)
