This article presents information about the need for the teaching of reading in physical education classes both in elementary and secondary settings with the primary focus on the secondary level. The article also presents a proposed teaching model. Currently there is little evidence that physical education teachers teach reading through content or even confront the issue of below-level readers. The reading model is geared to reach multi-level reading skills with learning activities and comprehension checks.
