Comprehensive School Physical Activity Program

HSES 410: Program Design in Physical Education

USD 497 Lawrence High School
I. Context

Lawrence High School is located on Louisiana St. in Lawrence, Kansas. It is a 6A

school and it currently has a population of 1,470 students. The majority of students
attending LHS identify as Caucasian, making up about 66% of the student population.
Hispanic students make up about 10% of the population, while African American
students are about 7% of the school population. The district that Lawrence High School
is located in is very diverse. There are students who come from upper and middle class
backgrounds, as well as students that are living in poverty. Approximately 31% of
students are eligible for free lunch, and about 10% of students are eligible for lunch at a
reduced cost.
Ms. Laura Koster is one of the physical education teachers who works at
Lawrence High School. It is her third year working in this role, and she is currently
working in her first year as the head coach of the Chesty Lions boys and girls cross
country teams. She previously worked at Bishop Ward High School in Kansas City,
Kansas. She teaches both fitness classes and lifetime sports classes. Her largest class
size is a lifetime sports class that has 35 students in it, while her smallest class is a
fitness class that has only 12 students in it. Within the first few days of teaching a new
lesson for any of her classes, Ms. Koster will give the class a quiz to see how much the
students have learned from the previous classes. For example, after teaching an
introductory lesson on different basketball skills and rules of basketball, she will begin
the next class by assessing the students and seeing how much they have learned.
These quizzes are used both for grading and for the teachers benefit, to evaluate how
effective her teaching is during the lesson.
Something interesting that can be observed in many of the PE classes at LHS is
the mix of students that you can see participating in class. There is a large variety of
students from all different backgrounds all participating in the same classes. For
example, in Ms. Kosters 5th hour class, lifetime sports, there are several students who
have special needs and IEPs that participate in the same activities as the student who
play on varsity sports teams. Implementing this sort of inclusive classroom environment
is not easy to do, but once it is implemented it is a great way to get the most out of
every student in the classroom.
One of the setbacks that we have observed is the issue of allowing coaching to
get in the way of teaching. It is common to see PE teachers who are coaching to allow
teaching to become secondary to coaching. In these classes specifically, there are
certain days where Ms. Koster seems very stressed out about managing her cross
country team, and she admits to letting that interfere with the way that she teaches her
classes at times.

2. Safety Precautions
As a physical educator at Lawrence High School, we will take every safety
precaution very seriously. We are both CPR/AED/and First aid trained. We are prepared
to use CPR on someone who is in need, and we are prepared to use a defibrillator if
necessary. All of the lesson plans that will be created will include a detailed analysis on
safety precautions used based on the lesson and the possible hazards for each lesson.
These precautions will all be documented in my office. It is also very important to warn
the students about these hazards and teach them about how to participate in a safe
I plan on using all of the school resources to make my class as efficient and safe
as possible. One way I can make my class safer is by coordinating a plan with both the
school nurse and even the counselor of the school to form a plan to help the students if
something were to go wrong. An easy way to avoid many injuries and different safety
concerns is to have the students use a dress code that is consistent and appropriate for
physical education class. They will be dressed in athletic attire, and the parents will be
informed about what is appropriate to wear. If a student does not wear what is
appropriate, they will still participate in different exercises, but they may not receive a
full participation grade if they cannot perform activities with the rest of class due to
breaking dress code.
Another easy way to avoid many safety concerns is to be aware of the condition
of the equipment that you have. I will routinely check the equipment that I am using. The
students will not be allowed to use any of the physical education equipment when I am
not around and when class is not in session, including when the students are at recess.
Lastly, it is important for both the students and the staff to be aware of how to handle
different situation such as; tornado drills, fire drills, and suspicious person in school
reports. These procedures will be practiced and students will understand how to react in
these kinds of rare situations.
