From your online reading (Rink, 2014) consider the three learning domain objectives. For each national physical education standard determine which learning domain best relates to the national standard. Provide rationale for your selection.

Standard 1 relates to the psychomotor domain because it deals with motor skills.

Standard 2 relates to the cognitive domain because it is more about tactics and strategy.

Standard 3 relates to the psychomotor domain because it deals with maintaining fitness outcomes.

Standard 4 relates to the affective domain because it deals with social behavior

b) Career Standards and Objectives: As a professional it is important to understand and follow the standard of care and guidelines for your chosen career. Go the week 2 “bonus resources” and carefully review your selected careers professional standards/Code of Ethics. Select what you believe are the top three most important standards. Briefly describe in your own words your Kinesiology career goal, which standards you reviewed, and what you believe are the three most important standards (with citations). Provide strong rationale for your choice. (max ½-1 page)

I believe the most important standards for a director of physical therapy are Staffing, Physical Setting and Pilicies/Procedures. APTA’s standard 2C , the staffing standard, states that the physical therapy personnel affiliated with the physical therapy service have demonstrated competence and are sufficient to achieve the mission, purposes, and goals of the service. This is very important in order to help the clients. In any field if the staff are under educated or giving unsafe recommendations they can hurt people. The goal of Physical Therapy is to get people out of pain so it is

very important to have qualified staff.

provide a safe and accessible environment that facilitates fulfillment of the mission, purposes, and goals of the physical

therapy service. The equipment is safe and sufficient to achieve the purposes and goals of Physical Therapy. Once again, as a physical therapist we must have safe equipment and proper equipment to help people. If the equipment or space is unsafe we could harm people instead. Standard 2C, the policies and procedures states that the physical therapy service has written policies and procedures that reflect the operation, mission, purposes, and goals of the service, and are consistent with the association’s standards, policies, positions, guidelines, and Code of Ethics. Any well-functioning

Standard 2I, the Physical Setting states that the physical setting is designed to

Accurate and professional submissions are important, thank you!



Assignment 2

This week you will continue to personalize your website and add more content to your current pages. At this time your pages and titles should be in the following order; 1) “Home,” 2) “Your Name” (this is your bio), 3) “Leadership” and 4) “Management.”

1. Leadership Page:

a) At the top of your Leadership page define “Kinesiology.” It should be a 2-3 sentence definition and be sure to cite your source on

your webpage. b) Just below your Kinesiology definition, add another textbox and use your career goal/path for the title (i.e.

Physical Educator, Physical Therapist, or Athletic Trainer). You mentioned your career last week in your personal biography. Now this page will explain what Kinesiology is and the specific field you are interested in.

b) Define your career. For example, what does a Corporate Fitness Consultant or an Athletic Director do? Make a list (not a

paragraph) of the key responsibilities and tasks for this career.

c) Creatively post your top 3 career standards/objectives from Part 1 of this assignment. Cite your source! Attach the standards

document or post the standards website for future use.

organizations websites (see syllabus resources) in your field and/or additional content about your specific career interest of study, etc. You can always contact the CBU career center for help. (Here is a helpful site too.

2. Management Page:

a) Creatively list the 5 functions of management in the order listed in the Sawyer & Judge text.

Under your “Planning” management function title that you just created, add a title stating “SWOT Analysis & Plan.Using Part 1 of this assignment make a separate word document of your SWOT analysis and plan only. Do not include your entire assignment 2 just the SWOT and plan. Post your SWOT analysis as an attachment beside the title. Do the same for Part 1 “Quality Physical Education National Standards” and attach your work. Remember to make it look professional.
