Failure = “at risk of sedentary lifestyle disease”. Does not mean student is fit or healthy if pass at 38th percentile. National Fitness Award = 50th percentile for all 5 categories. Presidential Fitness Award at or above 85th percentile for all 5 categories. Awards include patches and/or certificates. Ideas how to receive funding for awards? 4 Fitness Plans Revised for 2013 • Updated fitness plans based on feedback from CIA meetings. • Two options: traditional word document with web URLs provided for students to enrich experience (but not required) and fully online and interactive project. • Content and standards the same for both fitness plans. • Grading rubric the same for both fitness plans. 5 Traditional Word Document District Fitness Plans Pros • Teachers and students familiar with this type of project. • Individual project for students (work at own pace). • Teachers don’t need computer experience to explain the project. • Students do not need internet access to complete the project. Cons • Wastes paper: 11 pages per • • • • copy. Not challenging for students who have strong computer skills and or curiosity about subject. Not able to differentiate for students as can with the online project. Hard for students with special needs (a packet with limited pictures can be problematic). Not good use of iPads or inline with higher order thinking skill development. 6 WebQuest District Fitness Plan Pros • Fun and highly interactive for • • • • students. Students create a project they will present which involves creative and higher order thinking. Holds students accountable. Able to differentiate. Pictures and graphics more suitable to students with special needs. Students can easily work at home. Possible to complete project with no papers printed. Cons • Teachers and students need a basic comfort level with PowerPoint, Word and the Internet. • Need access to computers (high school) and internet. • A learning curve for transitioning from teacher directed instruction to computer supported instruction. • There will be glitches as this is the first run through…let Kim know when you come across them. 7 Fitness Plan Links: http://www.sweetwaterpe.org/district-fitness-plans.html Traditional Fitness Plans Web Based Fitness Plans • 7th Grade Fitness Plan • 7th Grade Fitness Plan (word doc) • 8th Grade Fitness Plan (word doc) • HSCI Fitness Plan (word doc) • HSCII Fitness Plan Doc WebQuest • 8th Grade Fitness Plan WebQuest • HSCI Fitness Plan WebQuest • HSCII Fitness Plan Webquest 8 Fitness Plans Review • The MyPlate and Supertracker sites are down due to the government funding issue.
