First of all…
• Why I’m here…
• I don’t have all the answers
• I’m not claiming that the CV program
is the best…we are, however,
constantly working to improve
• Effective teaching practices are
expected and possible in any subject
area
• Teaching a standards-based program
is NOT how the vast majority of
teachers were trained
A few more…
• We challenge conventional thinking
and think outside of the box
• The change process takes TIME
• Our profession requires a willingness
to confront the traditions that have
held us back for decades – and
continue to hold us back today
• It’s not about the game…

Signs of a
Counterproductive PE Program (Graham & Trout)
• No Curriculum
• Curriculum based on
“what the teachers
like to teach”
• Seasonal “curriculum”
• No Assessment
• Captains picking teams
• Elimination games
• One ball per class
• Team sports only
• No teacher motor skill
feedback
• Constant
embarrassment and
humiliation
• Negative (or no)
teaching
• Fitness testing with no
preparation (single
event testing)
Certificate of Genetic
Superiority
• Congratulations! Your son/daughter has
qualified for the President’s Council for

Update

Fitness Gram Physical Fitness
Tests
• Fitness Gram establishes criterionreferenced standards based on how fit
children need to be for good health (by age
and gender) – the Healthy Fitness Zone
• Health-related fitness components: Cardio,
Muscular Strength, Muscular Endurance,
Flexibility and Body Composition
• Significant associations were found
between physical fitness and indicators of
student achievement in a recent Texas
study
Fitness Testing – Texas Study
• Fitness Gram utilized for 2.4 million students in Texas
public schools
• Higher levels of fitness are associated with better
academic performance (TAKS)
• Higher levels of fitness are associated with better
school attendance
• Higher levels of fitness are associated with fewer
behavioral incidents
• Cardio fitness is most associated with academic
performance
– Schools with the highest and lowest academic
performance also have highest and lowest cardio fitness
• Fitness levels tend to decline with each passing grade
