Real-World Learning. A Transformational Approach to Physical Education for Adolescents

As a nurse practitioner and veteran of the fitness industry, I have created a transformational model of physical education for the high school level that is designed to meet the changing dynamics of the "real-world". This program is a response to the rising rates of sedentary lifestyles across all segments of society and its' comorbid sequela on both our physical and mental health. This Real-World model replaces the traditional curricula of physical education programs centered around games and team sports with a model focused on providing students with the education, inspiration, skills, and tools to inculcate a healthy lifestyle while in high school and be well-prepared to maintain such a lifstyle as they transition to adulthood.
