AbstractCurriculum plays crucial role in education at all levels.The curriculum must be based on sound values that are in harmony with the philosophy of the particular school system. The curriculum should be efficient in leading students toward education goals.
In order to develop an effective curriculum in physical education, it is necessary to understand the nature and basic purpose of physical education .This has been outlined in the following statement from the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD)
“Physical Education is the study and the practice of the science and art of human movement. It is concerned with why man moves; how he moves; the physiological, sociological and psychological consequences of his movement; and the skills and motor patterns which compromise his movement repertoire. Through physical education, an individual has the opportunity to learn and perform efficiently the motor skills he needs in everyday living and in recreational activities. He can develop and maintain sound physiological functions through vigorous muscular activity. He may increase the awareness of his physical self. Through expressive and creative activitities, he may enhance his aesthetic appreciations. Physical education provides situations for learning, to compete as well as cooperate with others in striving for the achievement of common goals. Within the media of physical activity, concepts underlying “effective human movement” can be demonstrated and the influences this have on the individual can be better understood. Satisfying and successful experiences in physical education should develop in individual a desire to regularly participate in activity throughout life. Only through enjoyable and persistent participation will the optimum benefits of the physical activity be derived.
