Physical Education Framework

Program Overview – Intermediate School

The physical education courses in middle school are designed to develop a physically educated person who has mastered the necessary movements to participate confidently in many different forms of physical activities, values physical fitness and who understands that both are closely related to health and well-being.

The grade 7 student is enrolled in a year course. Students meet challenges and make decisions both individually and in-groups. Individual sports are introduced.

The grade 8 student is also enrolled in a year course. Students work as team members to solve problems. The emphasis is on team sports and offensive and defensive strategies.

Program Overview - High School

Physical education is required of all students in grades 9 and 10. A minimum of 20 credits must be successfully completed, but a maximum of 40 credits may be applied toward the 220 credits required for high school graduation.

The physical education courses in high school continue to develop a physically educated person who participates confidently in a variety of physical activities, values physical fitness and who understands that both are intimately related to their health and well-being.

The grade 9 student will develop a personalized fitness program for a healthy life-style with a major emphasis on fitness concepts, team sports, aquatics and tumbling.

The grade 10, 11 or 12 student may select activities for the pursuit of individual excellence, to analyze skills for effective movement and to maintain a personalized fitness program that relates to total wellness.

Curriculum Frameworks and Instructional Resources

The Garden Grove Unified School District offers French, German, Latin, Vietnamese and Spanish. French and Spanish are offered at the seven comprehensive high schools. German is offered at Pacifica and Santiago. Latin is offered at Garden Grove. Vietnamese is offered at LaQuinta and Bolsa Grande. All of the foreign language classes are college prep electives. Foreign language classes develop the students’ listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. Students also develop cultural understanding and appreciation of the corresponding countries.

The current California World Language standards
were adopted in Jan 2009. They delineate standards in the five areas of content, communication,cultures, structures and settings through four stages of language of language development. For further information on the stages, please see the California Framework.

The standards indicate that a language learner will complete all four stages at the end of 13 years of instruction in the California public school system. They also provide for a variety of entry points, including Heritage Language Speakers.

The stages typically require more than one year to complete because students acquire language at different rates. Therefore students may move from one stage to another at varying intervals. Factors that affect language acquisition include readiness of the student, presentation of the material, and difficulty of the language for English speakers.
