Middle School PE Program
Like all SPARK Programs, the Middle School Physical Education (PE) effort began with objective research led by outstanding content experts.
Project M-SPAN (Middle School Physical Activity and Nutrition, San Diego State University) was supported by the Heart, Lung and Blood Institute from 1996-2000 and was the first scientific effort to study and evaluate this target population in physical education, physical activity and nutrition.
The M-SPAN staff (SPARK Principals and colleagues) worked with 24 middle schools (MS) encompassing nine urban and ethnically diverse school districts. Over 200 physical educators and administrators, and more than 24,000 students took part in the study.

Due to the proven successes of Project M-SPAN, SPARK began offering their research-based middle school curricula, training, consultation, and content-matched equipment to schools nationwide.
Since that time, SPARK Middle School Trainers have conducted more than 750 separate MS PE workshops and Institutes and trained more than 25,000 MS PE specialists – by far, more than any other group or organization specializing in MS PE.
To date, over 20 publications in peer-reviewed journals have demonstrated positive outcomes on middle school students and teachers who have implemented the SPARK Middle School Physical Education program.
SPARK is unique in that it is the only Middle School Physical Education program available today that can cite its development from the three largest and most significant N.I.H. studies ever on this student/teacher population.

It is worth noting that nearly two decades of MS PE focused study and nationwide dissemination has provided many more valuable “real-world” experiences to the SPARK team.
SPARK MS PE today is not a one-size fits all approach – rather, participating teachers choose from a variety of instructional themes, activities, assessment tools, and teaching strategies to integrate with and/or enhance their current programming.
Providing a comprehensive approach with day to day structure is desired and needed by many; however, the same tactic is not successful with others who are already providing quality, active PE. Differentiating implementation options for teachers, like differentiating instruction for students, is important to the receptivity and ultimate success of every project. SPARK understands this well and it is one of many reasons why the SPARK resonates so strongly with middle school physical educators and their students.
