    • Alternative Title:
      PECAT IHE guide ; Guide for physical education teacher preparation programs in institutions of higher education ;
    • Description:
      The PECAT is a tool for analyzing written physical education curricula to determine how closely they align with national standards for high-quality physical education. The purpose of the PECAT is to help school districts conduct a clear, complete, and consistent analysis of physical education curricula. PECAT results can help users enhance, develop, or select appropriate and effective physical education curricula for the delivery of quality physical education, which will improve the ability of schools to influence motor skills and physical activity behaviors among school-aged youth.

      This guide is designed for use by instructors in institutions of higher education (IHE) who are responsible for physical education professional teacher preparation programs. It is designed to help students understand and use the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) Physical Education Curriculum Analysis Tool (PECAT). The lessons and activities in this guide are intended to be used with upper-division undergraduate, pre-service courses that focus on physical education curricula and instruction, and in graduate-level physical education courses. The lessons and activities are designed to facilitate students’ use of the PECAT in analyzing single or multiple grade-level physical education curricula.

      The five lessons in this guide introduce students to the knowledge and skills needed to analyze a written physical education curriculum and strengthen their preparedness for teaching physical education in schools. Students learn that a high-quality physical education curriculum provides guidance for teaching skills, physical activity instruction and student assessment. This introduction provides instructors with a synopsis of the PECAT, the intended outcomes of the lessons, a description of the lesson format, and guidance for preparing to implement the lessons.
