PART 1: CONTENT ASSIGNMENT
Complete the specified P.E. content assignment listed on the cover sheet. Quality work is expected in order to earn full points.
The assignments for some months will take longer to complete than others. DON'T PUT IT OFF! If I ask you to write a research paper, then I expect you to spend more than 30 minutes on the last day trying to throw it together. You have a month to work on these assignments, so start early and you'll have no problem getting them done.
PART 2: ACTIVITY LOG
Perform approximately 200 minutes of physical activity that meets the Physical Education standards per academic week for a total of 800 minutes per 4-week month. If you find that you were short one week, do a little more the next week.
Playing an organized sport (such as soccer, softball, ice skating), taking lessons (such as gymnastics, yoga, karate, dance) or engaging in any planned activity that increases physical endurance, coordination, mobilty or strength (such as biking, running or weight lifting) are examples of physical activity that meet this requirement.
Record your activity in the Activity Log that is linked on the cover sheet. See the video below (or click here) to learn how to complete the log.
Print out the completed log at the end of the month and get it signed by a parent. The Activity Log is only considered valid if a parent/guardian signs it to verify that the physical activity did, indeed, take place. Without that signature, Part 2 is a zero (F) grade, regardless of the amount or type of physical activity shown on the log.
NOTE: There is no Google Classroom course for this class. You will access your assignment links on the cover sheet, print out your work and turn it all in to Room B-16.

Complete List of Grade 7 P.E. Standards and Physical Education Framework: https://www.cde.ca.gov/ci/pe/cf/
California Education Code, Section 51222 specifies the required legal minimum of 200 minutes of P.E. per week for grades 7-12. For independent study verification, student may be asked to demonstrate activities such as running, calisthenics, or other fitness performances as determined appropriate by their teacher.
SUPERVISORY REQUIREMENTS (Audit Pieces/Work Samples)
Student attendance credit is determined by the amount and quality of work completed by students each month. Without these work samples, students may be marked ABSENT/TRUANT for all or part of the month.
Students are required to submit their work samples (audit pieces) NO LATER than 3:00 p.m. on the last day of the academic month (a.k.a. "Turn-In Friday"). This is a FIRM deadline!
How to Prepare Your Work Samples (audit pieces)
Select one piece of work that you feel represents your best efforts from EACH of your courses. This should be a quality piece, not some worksheet where you just circled some commas or filled in a blank or two.
The Activity Log is NOT an acceptable work sample for P.E.. Always use the monthly content assignment as your work sample.
You may NOT use any form of evaluation. It cannot have the words "assessment, quiz, test, exam, evaluation, etc." written on it anywhere.
Do NOT write the word "Audit" anywhere on your work samples.
Provide the following information at the top of each sample:
Your first and last name
The name of the course (ex: "P.E. 7" or "Math 7" or "Spanish 1-2")
The academic month and year the assignment was completed, formatted as follows: "Month ___ 2021-2022"
An assignment title (ex: "Reflection Essay" or "Lesson 1.4 " or "Chapter 4 Review")
Bring your work for all of your classes and your completed work samples (audit pieces) to Ms. Rice in Room B-16 no later than 3:00 p.m. on Turn-In Friday. After Ms. Rice has looked at everything, then you can deliver the rest of your work to whatever teacher needs it for grading.
