Dr. George Graham, a professor at Virginia Tech, director of curriculum and instruction for the American Master Teacher Program for Children's Physical Education, and author of several books, wants to revolutionize physical education (PE) in schools. In his version of PE, Graham takes the focus away from learning individual sports and emphasizes the development of skills that can be applied in a variety of endeavors. In the curriculum he proposes, children spend most of their time being active learning life-long activities such as in-line skating, mountain biking, camping, fly fishing, backpacking and dancing. The 1996 Surgeon General's report presents clear evidence about the benefits of being physically active for a lifetime and Graham maintains that a lifetime of good health begins with the right PE program.
