Ms. Gerads
Goals and Objectives

enhance their own skills.

strategies needed to perform a variety of physical activities.

opportunities for enjoyment, challenge, and self-expression.
5. Demonstrate responsible personal behavior while participation in movement activities.

Evaluation and Grading
This will be based on the student’s ability to demonstrate, explain, and participate in the Physical
Education Content Standards. Grading will be based on Formative 60% and Summative 40%.
Formative assessments= refer to items that are done on a daily/weekly basis. They include but not limited to:
Activity/Condition, Fitness pre-test, class notes/lectures, handouts and worksheets. Formative assessment
supports learning and progression towards standard mastery.
Summative assessments=refer to skills/performance and cognitive learning that shows mastery of standards.
It includes: skills tests, written reflections, sportfolio, projects, and finals.
Learning Targets=
Attendance This class requires daily involvement and being present will lead to the greatest success;
however, if absent students are responsible to see if there was a Learning target (LT) or if it was a
Physical Engagement Day (PED). If it wasn’t a LT or PED day the students’ absence will be reflected in
their citizenship. I give each student two freebie days and after that the students’ citizenship will go
down to an “S” unless made-up on Tuesday, during advisory.
CITIZENSHIPCitizenship marks will involve behavioral standards which will be conductive to a positive
Educational environment from which all students may benefit.
The following criteria will be used to evaluate citizenship grades:
Attitude elevates the behavioral academic level of class
Attendance is exceptional; tardies are rare
Participation and volunteerism is continuous and constructive
Respect is always demonstrated for people and property
Attitude is positive and constructive
Attendance is excellent; tardies are uncommon
Participation and volunteerism are frequent and constructive
Respect is demonstrated for people and property
N=needs improvement
Attitude is resistant or contrary
Attendance is mediocre; tardies surpass teacher’s limit
Participation and volunteerism are rare or sometimes inappropriate
Respect is sometimes not demonstrated for people or property
Chews gum- sometimes
Attitude is negative and nonproductive
Attendance is poor; tardies are excessive
Participation and volunteerism are nonexistent or inappropriate
Respect is often not demonstrated for people or property
Chews gum- excessively
Limited Excuses: The P.E. teacher may excuse a student for one day at a time. Requests must be made
before roll call, but this is not an excuse from dressing.
Parental Excuses: Parents can request their daughter be excused from P.E. from one to three days by
note. In the note, the parent must state the following:
a. The students name and the date
b. How long the excuse is to be in effect (1 to 3 days)
c. What the injury or illness is.
These excuses are to be presented to the teacher first thing. DAILY PHYSICAL ACTIVITY IS VERY
IMPORTANT especially if there is a Learning Target or Physical engagement day. When possible we
would like to make modifications to the student’s activity that will not cause further harm to the injury
or illness. If no modifications can be made then written work will be given to the student in lieu of
