dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to develop a tool that can be utilized by physical educators, in conjunction with current lesson plans to increase physical activity. This tool, a binder created by the author, has been filled with helpful lessons, activities, and other ideas for the physical education classroom. The material within the binder was created and organized primarily for the middle school, high school, and university students.The idea behind all the material is to slowly introduce new ideas and concepts into the teaching of physical education, while slowly removing the heavy emphasis of sport-specific plans and lessons. The goal is not to totally dismiss the importance of sports skills, but more importantly, to introduce the concept of behavioral change and lifelong physical activity. The desire of the physical educator should be that the students learn and become passionate about being and staying healthy. The author was careful to include material that could be easily integrated into any classroom setting, with any type of student. The main focus points within the binder are: theories and methods involved with the behavioral change model, and the five fitness components to health — body composition, cardiovascular health, muscular endurance, muscular strength, and flexibility.The binder was reviewed by a current university professor and detailed feedback was given, along with future advice of other material to be collected. The binder has not yet been used in the classroom setting. en_US
