Comprehensive Health and PE Standards
Implementing Comprehensive Health and PE Standards
Colorado has new academic standards for students including updated physical education standards and, for the first time, comprehensive health standards. These standards are important because healthy, active students achieve more in school and in life. They concentrate better, make better decisions about their behavior and feel better about themselves.
Colorado’s District Sample Curriculum Project
This summer, CDE’s Standards and Instructional Support office will convene Colorado teachers and district leaders to participate in the creation of full instructional units based on selected unit overviews from the bank of samples. These fully-developed units will include: 1) Instructional strategies; 2) Assessment options; 3) Accommodation/differentiation ideas; and 4) Resource possibilities.
The details regarding the work of this phase as well as the application to participate are now available.
