Universities are actively seeking new ways to provide meaningful field experience opportunities. According to the National Home Education Research Institute (2010), homeschooling has grown from nearly extinct in the United States in the 1970’s to now over 2 million school-aged students. Thus, on-campus homeschool physical education programs serve as a viable mechanism for supplementing physical education teacher education (PETE) program requirements while providing valuable physical education opportunities to homeschooled students. The purpose of this article is to describe the MAP-IT Framework (American College Health Association, 2012) for the design and implementation of a contemporary on-campus homeschool physical education program. This guide is intended for PETE instructors who are considering initiating an on-campus homeschool physical education program. The MAP-IT framework has been used to plan and evaluate public health interventions to achieve community health objectives and offers a strong outline for PETE instructors to create an effective and sustainable on-campus homeschool physical education program.
