Physical Education

The OPEN Priority Learning Outcomes for Physical Education provide instructional focus through the lens of 4 umbrella standards and 16 instructional strands with 1 grade-level outcome per strand. This means that physical educators can now focus their planning to help students meet 16 learning outcomes per year with a clear focus on teaching the value of physical activity for good physical, emotional and mental health. All of OPEN’s 2020-2021 curriculum modules focus on this set of priority learning outcomes.

Social and Emotional Learning

The OPEN Priority Learning Outcomes for Social and Emotional Learning define 15 social and emotional learning outcomes that align with CASEL’s 5 core competencies. Each competency is unpacked into 3 trauma-informed content strands with an elementary and secondary outcome for each strand. This work is research-based and evidence-informed and is meant to guide the backward design of OPEN’s social and emotional learning resources focused on K-12 instruction and staff wellness.
