Hello and Welcome to Dr. Gordon's
    Physical Education Home Page.
    Philosophy:  I believe that all people can learn, they just have to find what motivates them!  I strive to find ways to spark each students interest in living a healthy lifestyle and support their personal journey to becoming the best person that "THEY" choose to become. 
    This page is designed so all students can find resources that demonstrate all of the major ideas outlined by the state physical education content standards for High School Course 2 and  High School Course 3F Weight Training & Fitness.  Please use the information to drive your personal research and assist you in the passing of my independence driven physical education classes.
    PE 2 Culminating Projects: All students will be given a chance to show how "THEY" have learned the content standards.
    Final #1: will require each student to design, implement and analyze the effectiveness of their very own personal heath (can work with peers on this), fitness and wellness program. This project will include ,1- appropriate personal health and fitness goals,  2- a calendar showing the daily health and fitness plan that helps the student to achieve their specific personal goals, 3-a detailed personal journal to document each days activities etc.and 4- a demonstration (video/in-class movements) of the activities shown in the calendar. You will be asked to use the CDC guidelines to come up with your personal fitness plan of strength and cardio and flexibility days. We will learn how to train the entire semester so this is not goig to be something that is new for you. 
    Final# 2: Create your own Game: Studets will be asked to work in small groups to create and teach thier own PE game. The game must include rules that are easy to follow, how to score points, how to win, how much a score is worth, how long the game is played, how many people per team (most games will be taught to groups of 10-12) how to modify to keep all skill levels involved (cant just be for the super athletic) how to keep to keep all players involved, how active is the game? This is a great way for students to learn how to speak infront of a group of peers and how to expalin something that they understand but others may not. Great for problem solving and learning how to take and give constructive criticism.
