Overview

Teaching Children Physical Education, Second Edition, is unique because it focuses solely on the teaching process – the skills and techniques that successful teachers use to make their classes more interesting and developmentally appropriate. This new edition contains the latest information on effectively teaching the National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) standards, as well as new material on performance assessment based on current research and methods.

Dr. George Graham – a university professor and public school physical education instructor – integrates research-based information with firsthand experience to describe the decision-making processes used by master teachers in virtually every lesson they teach. Novice and experienced teachers will learn practical skills and techniques to help them

  • motivate children to practice,
  • build positive feelings,
  • minimize off-task behavior and discipline problems,
  • create an atmosphere of learning,
  • maximize learning,
  • develop lesson content,
  • use a problem-solving approach,
  • observe and analyze,
  • provide feedback, and
  • assess children's (and their own) progress.

The video clips on the CD-ROM illustrate key techniques and strategies from the text, using footage from actual gymnasium and playground settings to show real teachers in true-life situations. Readers will also benefit from chapter introductions and objectives, highlighted insights "from the trenches" about issues that teachers commonly face, reflection questions, chapter summaries, and chapter references.
