Program Rationale & Philosophy

The aim of the Kindergarten to Grade 12 physical education program is to enable individuals to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to lead an active, healthy lifestyle.

Alberta’s vision for education focuses on children and their ability to achieve their individual potential, creating a positive future for themselves, as well as enhancing their quality of life. The Kindergarten to Grade 12 physical education program contributes to the development of life skills for the personal management of health, for the use of physical activity as a strategy for managing life challenges, and for a setting within which to practise the ability to work with others. The program provides an equitable opportunity for all students to realize the benefits of participation in physical activity.

Education is a shared responsibility involving students, parents, teachers, the school and the community. Within each day, whether at home, school, or in the community, there is structured and unstructured time available for meeting the aim of the physical education program that contributes to student well-being. As the benefits of physical activity increase proportionally as a result of the time and intensity provided, consideration should be given to maximizing the amount of time available within the school context. An approach that is sensitive to developmental and culturally appropriate practice, and that emphasizes enjoyable participation, is most likely to foster a desire in students to participate in lifelong physical activity.

Physical activity is vital to all aspects of normal growth and development, and the benefits are widely recognized. Students do not develop automatically the requisite knowledge, skills and attitudes that lead to active, healthy lifestyles. Such learning should begin in childhood. Schools and teachers can be prime facilitators in providing opportunities for the development of the desire for lifelong participation in physical activity.

Active Living

The physical education program emphasizes active living, with a focus on physical activity that is valued and integrated into daily life.

Active living through physical education:

  • creates a desire to participate
  • focuses on lifetime activities promoting health-related fitness for life
  • is about physical activity; and the nature, form, frequency and intensity of the activity are relative to each person’s ability, needs aspirations and environment
  • places physical activity within a broader perspective of total fitness and well-being that encompasses the entire experience of movement—physical, mental, emotional and social dimensions
  • is enhanced through opportunities to participate in such activities as intramural and interschool athletics and community-based sport and recreation activities
  • is centred around learner needs; inclusive, individual and varied
  • is supported when opportunities for making choices are provided
  • is supportive of the relevance of physical activity within the community.
Benefits of Physical Education and Activity

Strong evidence exists that physical activity contributes to the overall well-being of individuals. People of all ages can substantially improve their health and quality of life by including a moderate amount of physical activity into their daily routines. Participation in physical activity contributes to physical, mental and social well-being providing benefits to the individual and the community. Below are some reasons why students need physical education on a regular basis.

  • Health
    • Participation in physical activity can improve fitness—muscular strength, flexibility, muscular endurance, body composition and cardiovascular endurance—and reduce the risk factors related to heart disease, including obesity and high blood pressure. Regular physical activity increases bone density to create a stronger skeleton. It can be an outlet for releasing tensions and anxieties in the promotion of mental health.
  • Active Lifestyle
    • Physical activity, over time, is beneficial to personal well-being. Physical education promotes personal responsibility for health and fitness and for students to develop a desire to participate for life.
  • Skill Development
    • Physical education develops physical skills that allow for enjoyable and successful participation in movement activities. Students perceived competence is a key determinant for future involvement in physical activity.
  • Positive Interactions
    • Interaction with others is an important aspect of most physical activities. Physical education provides a natural learning environment in which to develop cooperation and fair play skills. For example, students have opportunities to assume leadership, develop teamwork skills, officiate and take responsibility for their actions while playing.
  • Self-confidence and Self-esteem
    • Physical activity can instill a strong sense of self-worth in students. They can become more confident, assertive and independent.
  • Goal Setting
    • Physical education provides opportunities for students to practise goal setting as they participate.
  • Economic
    • Physical activity can improve health, which reduces the cost of health care for individuals and the community.
  • Academic Achievement
    • Time allocation for physical education programs does not limit academic achievement; in fact, it can contribute to increased achievement levels; i.e., active bodies/active minds.
Student Learning and Achievement

Students will meet the aim of the physical education program, to lead an active, healthy lifestyle, if they have developed a desire to participate regularly in physical activity. The aim can only be achieved by addressing the prescribed outcomes within an environment wherein students are emotionally and physically safe, the climate is positive, and a variety of developmentally appropriate skill-building experiences are provided.

Curriculum experiences provide students with opportunities to develop the habit of being active daily, the skills to enjoy successful participation, and to realize the benefits resulting from activity. This is the focus of an “active living” approach.

There are many factors to be considered in providing a context wherein students can achieve. Planning will help to determine ways in which to provide a program that addresses the outcomes and meets the diverse needs of learners. Some of the factors to consider when planning include:

  • activity that is relevant, meaningful and enjoyable
  • student equity and diversity
  • alignment of learning outcomes, instructional and assessment practices
  • practices that apply the principles of learning
  • experiences from all movement dimensions
  • opportunities to practise and demonstrate growth and achievement
  • elements of risk and challenge provided in a safe environment
  • consideration of, and for, past related experiences
  • time allocation
  • teacher willingness and expertise
  • diversity of instructional strategies
  • focus on outcomes rather than dimensions
  • facilities and equipment resources
  • use of community resources
  • use of technology
  • assessment, evaluation and communication of student learning
  • transference to lifelong participation in physical activity.
Exemptions

To meet the aim of the program it is recommended that a variety of movement experiences be provided in all the dimensions. In the following specified circumstances; however, exemptions may be warranted from one or more dimensions and/or a physical education course.

CategoryConditions for ExemptionProceduresOther experiences
INDIVIDUALReligious beliefs- Statement in writing from parent to principal.- When exemption is granted, other activities consistent with the aim and outcomes of the program should be substituted, where appropriate.
INDIVIDUALMedical- Certification to principal by medical practitioner with statement of activities in which the student is not able to participate.
CLASS, GRADE OR SCHOOLAccess to facilities- Initiated by school authority or parent.
- Approved by school authority.

General & Specific Outcomes

The four general outcomes upon which the Kindergarten to Grade 12 physical education program is based state that students will:

  • acquire skills through a variety of developmentally appropriate movement activities; dance, games, types of gymnastics, individual activities and activities in an alternative environment; e.g., aquatics and outdoor pursuits
  • understand, experience and appreciate the health benefits that result from physical activity
  • interact positively with others
  • assume responsibility to lead an active way of life.

The general outcomes are interrelated and interdependent. Each is to be achieved through a variety of physical activities. Students must have the opportunity for participation in each of the following dimensions:

  • dance
  • games
  • types of gymnastics
  • individual activities
  • activities in an alternative environment; e.g., aquatics and outdoor pursuits.
  • Each general outcome includes specific outcomes, by grade, and at the senior high school level by course name. Students are expected to demonstrate these outcomes, to the best of their ability, by the end of each grade/course.

    Program planning requires consideration of student age, grade level, individual abilities and developmental readiness. Assessment, evaluation and communication of student achievement requires consideration of such factors as practice time, individual growth and development, and overall improvement.
