Standards Covered During my Action Research
Common Core State Standards: Even though I am teaching physical education, I was able to cover some common core standards. The areas that I included during this action research were the listening and speaking sections of the common core standards. They were things that were good to cover especially because my students speak primarily different languages.
21st Century Skill (4 C's): Before this program, I had zero clue what the Four C's were. After learning about them, they are a must in today's classroom. The skills that are used when covering the Four C's will set students up for success in today's technology heavy world.
TPACK: TPACK and the Four C's work together. TPACK is how technology is incorporated into the classroom. In TPACK, there are three main components: content, pedagogy, and technology. In this action research, I had to take steps to integrate technology into the physical education classroom. This was something that my students were not used to in that setting.
Physical Education Model Content Standards for California Public Schools: Being a Physical Educator, these are content standards are what I primarily focus on. There are different standards for each grade level and it usually progresses from basic movements in Kindergarten to offensive and defensive strategies at the high school level.
