2022 Maine Learning Results
- Health Education and Physical Education Introduction
The Health Education and Physical Education Standards and performance expectations represent the essential knowledge and skills students need to be healthy individuals and lifelong learners. Being a lifelong learner involves the awareness and understanding of health and physical literacy. “Personal health literacy is the degree to which individuals have the ability to find, understand, and use information and services to inform health related decisions and actions for themselves and others.” (US CDC). “Physical literacy is the ability to move with competence and confidence in a wide variety of physical activities in multiple environments that benefit the healthy development of the whole person” (SHAPE America). Social and emotional learning is naturally embedded in both health education and physical education. Students participate in an inclusive learning environment that values the interests of all Maine children through opportunities to learn and practice social and emotional skills and behaviors. Through achievement of the Health Education and Physical Education Standards, students will practice an active and balanced approach to life, take responsibility for their own wellness and contribute to the health and well-being of their own community.
