Physical Education teachers integrate personal and social skill development into a student's mastery of the content standards. Thus, the presentation of the Physical Education Standards is preceded by a list of complementary Personal and Social Development Skills (PESK) standards. Including PESK standards as part of teaching, learning and assessing in Physical Education is critical for promoting lifelong, healthy physical activity. Together, the PESK and Physical Education Content Standards help students realize the wide range of benefits associated with participation in dance, sports, games, and other physical activities.
