• Physical Education 1 is designed to help all students develop health-related physical fitness, physical skill competence, cognitive understanding, and positive attitudes about physical activity so that they can lead physically active, healthy lifestyles. Through fitness and sports related activities, students are able to participate in and appreciate healthenhancing activities outside the physical education class and in the future. One semester of this course emphasizes personal fitness and wellness through weight training, cardiovascular activities, and the study of healthenhancing activities. The other semester incorporates fitness activities along with components of lifetime movement forms that help students lead an active lifestyle. Students are assessed using a variety of methods including skills tests, fitness tests, and written tests. This course meets the South Carolina Academic Standards for Physical Education and incorporates the American Heart Association’s “CPR in Schools Training Kit” for CPR and AED awareness instruction. Physical Education 1 is the foundation course for all other physical education courses.
