A High school Lifetime Physical-Activity Program: Lake Park high school has adopted a lifetime physical-activity focus for its high school program. Their philosophy states, “In order to live longer and to be as functional and independent as possible in the future our students need to be able to assess their own health and make a plan to maintain and or improve it” Students are continually involved with self-assessment and problem solving situations. They learn how to set goals, monitor progress, and make changes to achieve their goals. They learn not only about health and fitness but also about how to manage and change their own behaviors in activity, diet, safety, and stress management. The lake park program offers introductory courses in physical education and health education in the ninth and tenth grades and then offers a series of courses including dance, cross training, personal wellness, team activities, leadership fitness training, strength and conditioning, and strength training in the eleventh and twelfth grade. This program is highly consistently with the current emphasis in physical education on preparing students to take active control of their health and physical activity as they move into adulthood. An Upper-elementary sport education program: The upper grades curriculum at olde sawmill elementary school is based on the sport education model. In grades 4-6 the curriculum is sport oriented. Students are placed on teams at the start of the school year and remain with their teams throughout the year as they work for points toward an all sport award. Students select a name for the team and team colors. Captains and assistants are assigned and selected for each new sport season. A schedule of competition is arranged for each season. Each day that the students have physical education, they do everything as members of their team. When they enter the gym, they have an assigned space where team members do their warm-ups together led by their team captain. A period of skill practice follows, with captains again leading their teams through the assigned drills. As the season progresses, less time is allocated for team skill practices and more time is allocated for games. In each sport season, students are players, coaches, referees, or scorekeepers, Simple records are kept for each game performance. Short-duration, small sided games are used for team sport competition. Teams can earn points toward an overall championship in a number of ways, including winning games, practicing as a team at recess, behaving as good sportspersons, passing the knowledge tests, and exhibiting leadership. In the soccer season, each class typically has three or four teams. Captains lead teams during the class and administer schedules and assignments between class sessions. The soccer season begins with a 2v2 round robin competition in which games last 4 minutes. Captains must assign players from their team for each of the 2v2 games. Students not playing at any given time are involved as either referees or scorekeepers.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
