Overview

The third edition of the popular book Teaching Sport Concepts and Skills : A Tactical Games Approach for Ages 7 to 18 now covers the elementary level as well as middle and secondary levels. It shows teachers how to move from a traditional to a tactical games teaching approach with detailed unit and lesson plans, a DVD-ROM with video clips and reproducibles, and a standards-linked Game Performance Assessment Instrument (GPAI).

Teaching Sport Concepts and Skills, Third Edition, not only explains the tactical games approach, but it also contains more than 330 ready-to-use lessons to help teachers apply it. Elementary school teachers will use games to teach the basic concepts and tactics of these types of sports:

• Invasion

• Net and wall

• Striking and fielding

• Target sports

Middle and high school teachers help students develop sport-specific tactical and technical skills for 12 sports, including soccer, lacrosse, and flag football (new to this edition). The lessons feature more than 240 diagrams that make for easy setup and execution of the games.

For those new to the tactical approach, the accompanying DVD-ROM includes video clips of actual lessons that demonstrate the tactical approach in action. The DVD includes ready-to-use reproducibles for in-service teachers that also serve as examples for preservice teachers.

Focusing on tactical awareness helps students develop problem-solving skills through game play. The tactical approach also allows teachers to individualize instruction for novice, developing, and advanced performers by either reducing or increasing the challenge of the tasks involved. The third edition of Teaching Sport Concepts and Skills will help current and future teachers structure positive and engaging learning experiences that set the stage for improved performance and lifelong enjoyment of sport.
