Welcome to Physical Education
This is a class that combines the knowledge and skills needed in physical education to develop and maintain one’s personal fitness. The times have changed, technology has improved and the need to address childhood obesity and health care costs have also influenced the curriculum and instruction in today’s schools.
At Lincoln Middle School in Portland, Maine the curriculum for physical education is a balance between modified team sports, individual sports, fitness knowledge and activities, and innovative games that are the rage of current times. Each student is encouraged to do their personal best each day and lessons are taught to meet the needs and interests of all students. At Lincoln, all students have a 55 minute block for instruction every other day for 1/2 of the year. The other half of the year will be Health Education. Students will need to come prepared for the lesson of the day. All students are expected to meet the performance indicators as identified in the Maine Learning Results.
