"Level 1 (Respect) involves respect for the rights and feelings of others and has three related components: self-control, the right to peaceful conflict resolution, and everyone's right to be included."
"Level 2 (Participation) is there to help students get to experience program content in a positive way. Level 2 is composed of self-motivation, the importance of experimentation, and the courage to persist. "
"Level 3 (Self-Direction) promotes a "complimentarity of excellences" (Norton, 1976), which means treating each student's self-directed goal as equal instead of deciding that one is better than another based on its popularity in society. Level 3 involves on-task independence (i.e. students working without supervision), goal-setting progressions, and working towards an understanding of one's needs."
"Level 5 involves taking the 4 previous levels and applying them outside of the program (or, in my case, my gym). At level 5, students are working on being able to transfer what they've discovered in your gym to the reality of their life outside of your PE program. "
