New Sagamore Publishing Book


Physical Education: A Literacy-Based Approach is a book that is intended to facilitate the understanding and application of the ELA Common Core State Standards for both inservice and preservice physical education teachers. The book includes chapters that detail what the ELA Common Core State Standards are as well as how to implement and assess them in physical education. Features of the book include several examples of how to link the ELA Common Core State Standards to both the national physical education standards and the national grade level outcomes for physical education. In addition, two chapters provide descriptions of specific activities that align with the ELA Common Core State Standards. Today in education, physical education teachers are being required to support literacy through teaching physical education content.
