As our nation strives for school-age children to achieve the recommended 60 minutes of daily physical activity, all schools need to commit to making evidence-based physical education (PE) and health education the cornerstone of a comprehensive school physical activity program.
SHAPE America advances and disseminates research in physical activity and health through the Research Council and provides a direct link to the effective instructional practices, curriculum and assessment tools that will help you build an evidence-based health and PE program.
The spectrum of discipline areas for SHAPE America's Research Council includes: biomechanics, dance, exercise physiology and fitness, health, leisure and recreation, measurement and evaluation, motor behavior, pedagogy, physical activity epidemiology, psychology, sociocultural aspects of physical activity, special populations, sport management and administration and sports medicine.
