2013-2014 Mississippi Physical Education Framework

NATIONAL STANDARDS FOR PHYSICAL EDUCATION

The National Association for Sports and Physical Education (NASPE) established national content standards for physical education school programs that clearly identify what all students should know and be able to do as a result of participation in a quality education program. The competencies chosen for the framework were taken directly from the NASPE content standards for physical education. The National Standards for Physical Education are as follows:

A physically educated person:

  • Demonstrates competency in motor skills and movement patterns needed to perform a variety of physical activities;
  • Demonstrates an understanding of movement concepts, principles, strategies, and tactics as they apply to the learning, development and performance of physical activities;
  • Exhibits a physically active lifestyle;
  • Achieves and maintains a health-enhancing level of physical fitness;
  • Exhibits responsible personal and social behavior that respects self and others in physical activity settings; and
  • Values physical activity for health, enjoyment, challenge, self-expression, and/or social interaction.
