Designed and written specifically for classroom teachers, this book and its three accompanying lesson plan books provide everything an elementary teacher needs to design just the right curriculum to meet their students individual needs, which is a growing trend in education today. The book provides both content and guidelines for instructional methodology and can be used as a resource to supplement the lesson plans. It's packed with suggestions for using the lesson plans, organizing the lesson, and ultimately giving a more effective presentation of the material.
Every area of curriculum is covered, starting with an introductory look at the teaching of physical education and some answers to why physical education and activity are necessary for students each and every day. The focus is on how to teach motor skills to children, how to implement a sound physical education lesson, how to manage the class effectively, what discipline strategies to use, how to deal effectively with children with disabilities, what the legal liability is and how to care properly for students, and how to introduce physical activity and fitness to children in a positive way.
