Almost 65 percent of adults in the United States are overweight or obese—and children are on pace to be significantly fatter in their own adulthood than today’s adults. Making matters worse, the number of physical education classes in schools is plummeting as well.
So how can schools with diminishing PE budgets be successful? By following the blueprint provided in PE4life: Developing and Promoting Quality Physical Education. This book and DVD package is part inspiration, part toolkit, and part textbook. Those parts combine to make it the ideal resource for anyone involved in developing and promoting quality physical education programs.
PE4life includes the following elements:
- A DVD featuring Phil Lawler, a veteran physical education teacher and coach and the director of the PE4life Academy in Naperville, Illinois
- PE4life’s seven-step action plan for improving a physical education program
- A wealth of examples of assessments, lesson plans, curricula, and more to use as advocacy tools
- Plenty of ready-to-use worksheets, handouts, reproducibles, key links, and slide presentations
