Driving the Course: Program Alignment with National Standards
Since 1989, SPARK (Sports, Play, and Active Recreation for Kids) has been a pioneer in the systemic reform of physical education (PE), creating, implementing, and evaluating programs that promote lifelong wellness. Over the years, SPARK researchers and educators have revised their PE curricula and training programs to meet changing NASPE (National Association of Sport and Physical Education) guidelines. The purpose of this presentation is to provide evidence of SPARK alignment to the NASPE national standards. Itís easy, itís fun, and itís always driven with a purpose!
