Health / Physical Education
Health and Physical Education have unique opportunities to contribute to the objectives of education. The nearer a person reaches optimum health as an individual the more likely are their chances of living constructively, effectively, and successfully. The modern concept of health and physical education directs itself toward development of the whole child. The curriculum in health and physical education strives for that goal.
The physical education teacher, using physical activity as the primary teaching tool, is concerned with the total learning situation, the personal and social relationships involved, the setting in which learning takes place, the outcomes of team work, as well as the kind and quality of the activity itself.
