(R): 159A

This AA track provides the first two years of a teacher preparation program for the elementary and secondary grade levels.

This curriculum prepares students to transfer to four year institutions with a broad-based background in the study of human movement and education theory and psychology. This curriculum is based upon introducing students to the National Standards for Physical Education (NASPE) for entry level physical education teachers. The program allows the students to fulfill their general education requirements, participate in field work experience, as well as complete a core of professional preparation work that is appropriate for students in their first two years of the physical education major. Courses will address pedagogy, psychology, motor skill and movement abilities as well as health and fitness promotion.
