You will create a curriculum map year at a glance. It will be similar to the one pictured in table 4.5 of the textbook. You will need to refer to at least one of the following resources. In California, we use the California Content Standards. If you are in California, or plan to teach in California, I would suggest using this document. Outside of California there are other state content standards you can use, specific to the state in which you will be teaching. You may use that particular state’s content standards or use the SHAPE Grade Level Outcomes. Attached are these two documents. They are also in the Resources Needed for this Class folder in the Begin Here learning activities folders.
As you look at the content standards for your chosen grade level, pull out the key topics or main ideas for instruction. Decide where you would teach these concepts throughout the school year. For simplicity, you may want to divide the year into four quarters. The example has six sections. Four will be good for this assignment.
You will want to make sure you account for as many standards as possible. Combining standards and creating a general topic will be helpful. For example, grade 6, standards 1.2, 1.3, and 1.4 all talk about striking. Don’t worry about getting every standard placed in the map. If your grade level is high school, just concentrate on High School Course 1 and High School Course 2 in the California content standards. The SHAPE grade level outcomes for high school are combined nicely.
Use the same topics as table 4.5. The idea is to see the whole year at a glance so you will not be explaining anything. Be general and concise. It should be only one page.
High School (Grade 9-12) – Required health and fitness academic content can be found in standards 1 and 2. Required fitness related activities are found in standard 2. Required motor skills are found in standard 1. Required social, emotional and safety content can be found in standard 3.
All written submissions should reflect professionalism in grammar, spelling, writing style/format (one-inch margins, double spaced, typed in 12-point Times New Roman font), include current APA citations when appropriate, an appropriate title page, and be uploaded as .doc or .docx documents.
