    TEXT:   Drive Right   2000 Scott, Fresman, Addison, and Wesley / Health 2003 Glencoe McGraw-Hill


    In grade 10, students are proficient in all fundamental movement skills. Students self-select physical activities that they are likely to participate in throughout life. Students understand and apply key movement and fitness principles and concepts for activities in which they demonstrate competence. Students develop the ability to understand and anticipate how physical activity interests and abilities change across a lifetime. Students must demonstrate a level of competency in at least three lifetime physical activities and implement, self-assess, and modify a personal fitness plan. Classroom instruction includes driver education, first aid, and family life education. Classroom and in-car driver education focus on safe driving attitudes, time, space, and distance perception, skill development, and recognition of appropriate response to hazards in the ever-changing driving environment. Students apply basic driving skills in low-to-moderate traffic situations and progress to demonstration of skill proficiency in more complex traffic situations. Throughout the course, emphasis is placed on extensive supervised practice with a licensed parent or guardian to develop precision in the use of skills, processes, and responsibilities.


    *In Driver’s Education students will be introduced to the requirements to becoming a safe and responsible driver.

    *In Health, students will be introduced to a variety of health concepts, skills, and behaviors to plan for their personal health goals.

    *In Physical Education, students will participate in all types of physical activities-games, sports, and recreational pursuits in order to understand the importance of lifelong participation in physical activity.
