The complete teacher’s guide for developing physical education portfolios grades 7-12. Aligned to the Physical Education Model Content Standards for California Public Schools. Complete with lessons, lecture notes, handouts, worksheets, internet lesson, and helpful hints to incorporate portfolios into your fitness units. As demonstrated at the AAHPERD National Conference and the CAHPERD State Conference, The Physical Educator’s Guide to Portfolios is the original guide to physical education portfolios. This comprehensive teacher’s guide is now utilized throughout the United States and nearly twenty countries worldwide.

With increased emphasis on standardized testing it is now more important than ever to develop physical education curriculums that meet both the Physical Education Model Content Standards for California Schools and the Physical Education Framework for California Public Schools. Developed over the past thirty years by one of California’s leading “grass roots” practitioners, The Physical Educator’s Guide to Portfolios has become the standard teacher’s guide for incorporating portfolios into middle and secondary physical education programs nationwide.

Every aspect of fitness and human performance is included. Simple and easy to follow chapters include: Setting goals, aerobic training, strength training, human performance, sports nutrition, food labeling analysis, weight control, consumer fitness fraud analysis and more. From cross training to biomechanics, it’s all included in The Physical Educator’s Guide to Portfolios.
