Designed to complement the successful elementary and middle school books in the series, this book also provides guidance on how to plan effective lessons that align with SHAPE America’s National Standards and Grade-Level Outcomes for K-12 Physical Education. Lesson Planning for High School Physical Education is written by master teachers and edited by SHAPE America. In this book, you’ll find: • More than 240 lesson plans that provide deliberate, progressive practice tasks and integrate appropriate assessments to evaluate and monitor student progress • Innovative and unique modules on topics such as fly fishing, rock climbing, line dance, yoga and stress management, and more, as well as more traditional modules • Introductory chapters that present the key points for the grade span, putting the lessons in context and providing teachers and PE majors and minors a clear roadmap for planning curricula, units, and lessons • Lessons that reflect best practices in instruction, helping teachers enhance their effectiveness • Expert guidance in delivering quality lessons that are designed to reach objectives and produce outcomes, and not just keep students occupied The lessons correspond to each category in SHAPE America’s National Standards and Grade-Level Outcomes for K-12 Physical Education, and are sequential and comprehensive—you get complete, ready-to-use units and not just individual lessons that don’t connect. The lessons include resource lists, references, equipment lists, and student assignments. The accompanying web resource offers easy access to printable PDF files of the lessons. Your administrator will be able to see at a glance that the lessons in the book are designed to meet the national standards and outcomes created by SHAPE America.

They also are perfect models for teachers and college students to use in creating their own lessons. The text includes instructional strategies such as how to teach for transfer, utilize grids and small games, differentiate instruction for varying ability levels, integrate conceptual material, and more. The book is organized into two parts. Part I explores issues pertinent to planning for high schoolers’ success, including how to plan lessons using SHAPE America’s Grade-Level Outcomes, meeting the National Standards and Grade-Level Outcomes, developing an electives-based program for high school students, and the importance of teaching for student learning. The lesson plans themselves are found in Part II, and each lesson aligns with SHAPE America’s National Standards and Grade-Level Outcomes for K-12 Physical Education. Part II offers plans in these categories: • Outdoor pursuits • Individual-performance activities • Net and wall games, such as badminton and tennis • Target games • Dance and rhythms • Fitness activities, such as Pilates, resistance training, and yoga • Personal fitness assessment and planning Each category contains modules of 15 or 16 lessons, each of which incorporates various National Standards and Grade-Level Outcomes. For example, you can address Standard 4 outcomes—which are about personal and social responsibility—during lessons on net and wall games, lessons on dance and rhythms, and so on. With the high-quality lesson content and the many tools and resources provided, Lesson Planning for High School Physical Education will help teachers foster their students’ physical literacy and help students develop physically active lifestyles that they can maintain throughout their adult lives.
