The Third Edition of Standards-Based Physical Education Curriculum Development  was created around the 2014 National Standards for Physical Education for K-12 education.   Written by experts with a wealth of experience designing and implementing thematic curriculum, this innovative resource guides readers through the process of writing dynamic curriculum in physical education. The text begins by looking at the new national standards and then examines physical education from a conceptual standpoint.

 It goes on to examine the development of performance-based assessments designed to measure the extent of student learning and explores the various curricular models common to physical education. It delves into sport education, adventure education, outdoor education, traditional/multi-activity, fitness, and movement education, describing each model and how it links with physical education standards.
