R1,037 Discovery Miles 10 370 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Game Sense is an exciting and innovative approach to coaching and physical education that places the game at the heart of the session. It encourages the player to develop skills in a realistic context, to become more tactically aware, to make better decisions and to have more fun. Game Sense is a comprehensive, research-informed introduction to the Game Sense approach that defines and explores key concepts and essential pedagogical theory, and that offers an extensive series of practical examples and plans for using Game Sense in real teaching and coaching situations.

The first section of the book helps the reader to understand how learning occurs and how this informs player-centred pedagogy. It also explains the relationship between Game Sense and other approaches to Teaching Games for Understanding. The second section of the book demonstrates how the theory can be applied in practice, providing a detailed, step-by-step guide to using Game Sense in eleven sports, including soccer, basketball, field hockey and softball.

No other book explores the Game Sense approach in such depth, or combines theory and innovative practical techniques. Game Sense is invaluable reading for all students of physical education or sports coaching, any in-service physical education teacher or any sports coach working with children or young people.

Henri Oguike's Front Line - Creative Insights (Paperback): Lorna Sanders Henri Oguike's Front Line - Creative Insights (Paperback)
Lorna Sanders
R262 Discovery Miles 2 620 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Front Line is currently chosen as the set work on the GCSE Performing Arts: Dance specification. This book will be an invaluable resource. It provides material and information for both teachers and students to support study of the work. It will also be useful to those teaching dance at a range of other levels. Front Line has become something of a signature piece for the Henri Oguike Dance Company, being in demand since their first performance of it in 2002. Sanjoy Roy, writing for the journal Dance Now hailed the work as 'being in a class of its own'. Henri Oguike, a founder member of the Richard Alston Dance Company and winner of a prestigious Jerwood Award for young choreographers in 1997, created his own company in 1999. His devotion to the primacy of the relationship between music and dance quickly earned him critical acclaim and in 2001 he received the Time Out Award for the Most Outstanding New Company. In 2003 the Arts Council England sponsored the filming of Front Line. The book provides an insight into the creation of Front Line. Part 1 provides biographical information on the three collaborators Henri Oguike, Guy Hoare (lighting designer) and Elizabeth Baker (costume designer). It places Front Line within the artistic context of their careers. Details are also given on Dimitry Shostakovich (the composer of the music). Part 2 explores the background context of contemporary dance in the UK and suggests useful resources for study of these aspects. Part 3 gives insight into the starting points for Front Line and outlines the contributions of the choreography, music and lighting design. Part 4 lays out an analytical overview of Front Line and suggests a range of practical and theoretical tasks for the teacher to use. A chart is included giving details of a variety of dances that can be used as comparison and contrast with Front Line to enable teachers to plan their GCSE courses. Appendices provide further contextual information, resources and a bibliography. This is the third Creative Insights published by Dance Books. Along with White Man Sleeps and Rush, Front Line: Creative Insights provides an in-depth exploration of a single dance and its background contexts. It will be of interest to a wide range of readers including teachers and students of dance and those wanting information about contemporary dance in the UK. This is the first in-depth account of Henri Oguike's work.

Physical Literacy on the Move - Games for Developing Confidence and Competence in Physical Activity (Paperback): Heather Gardner Physical Literacy on the Move - Games for Developing Confidence and Competence in Physical Activity (Paperback)
Heather Gardner
R546 Discovery Miles 5 460 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Authors have addressed physical literacy in books before-but these books have never comprehensively tied theory to practice. Author Heather Gardner has found a way to help K-12 physical and health education teachers bridge this gap in Physical Literacy on the Move. The result? Students not only learn the concepts of physical literacy but also learn to apply those concepts while having great fun and developing skills and self-confidence along the way. 120 Games for Physical Literacy Development This highly practical text applies physical literacy from a holistic point of view that goes beyond acquiring basic sport skills or fitness training. The book focuses on the key concepts of physical literacy as it offers the following: * 120 ready-to-use games and activities appropriate for a variety of accessible settings * Game and activity adaptations to increase or decrease the challenge * Personal reflection self-check questions for each activity to help students consider the movement skills, concepts, and strategies used, as well as relationship and social skills and critical thinking issues * A game finder that helps you find the right kind of game and level of challenge for your students Four Learning Levels With Adaptations for Each Game Gardner has broken the games and activities into four progressive levels of learning: beginning, exploring, competent, and proficient. In this way, students are not stuck in levels that are too easy or too hard for them-they have the opportunity to make decisions regarding their own groups, equipment, game set-up, and adaptations. The approach lets them find the optimal level of challenge, maximizing both participation and fun. The book contains eight chapters, each of which is broken into the four levels of learning. In addition to the ready-to-use games and activities, each chapter also has three special elements to aid in your instruction: * Words to Know offers terms and illustrations that are important to your physical literacy instruction and that pertain to specific fundamental movement skills. * Where's the Physical Literacy? highlights background information and other key learning that you might find appropriate for your students. * Educator Check and Reflect provides teaching and safety tips, strategies for creating an inclusive learning environment, and teaching reminders. Game Construction The games and activities are grouped into activity categories: low-organization games, personal fitness, gymnastics, creative movement, running and skipping, throwing and catching, striking with hands, and striking with an implement or feet. The game descriptions offer all the information needed to easily put them into play; each lists the activity goal, fundamental movement skill, tactical focus, level, facility, equipment, safety, activity instructions, adaptations, self-check questions, and more. You can search for games by chapter, skill, developmental level, or activity category. The Outcome: Physically Literate Students When people are physically literate, they can function confidently and competently in a variety of environments and physical activities-activities that aid the development of the whole person. Physical Literacy on the Move is a tremendous resource to help your students develop their physical literacy. And as they are developing that literacy, you can be supporting their individual needs, thanks to the practical applications of the concepts and theories as delivered through the games and activities. The student-centered games in this book lay the foundation for students to explore and develop their physical literacy through enjoyable activities. And the learning and experiences will spur them to continue being physically active throughout their lives.

Effective Physical Education Content and Instruction - An Evidence-Based and Teacher-Tested Approach (Paperback): Phillip C.... Effective Physical Education Content and Instruction - An Evidence-Based and Teacher-Tested Approach (Paperback)
Phillip C. Ward, Harry Lehwald
R1,348 Discovery Miles 13 480 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

As a physical educator (or student preparing to become one), you need to know more than the skills, techniques, and tactics of the sports and activities you teach. You need to understand, among other things, how to create task progressions, how to organize and adapt those tasks, and how to detect and correct student errors. Effective Physical Education Content and Instruction will help you learn how to do just that. Theoretical Framework and Evidence-Based Plans This text provides a theoretical framework to work from and gives you ready-to-use, teacher-tested content that is evidence based. Sample block plans are designed to help students of differing ability levels engage in skillful play. You'll be able to draw from teaching progressions that are game-like, developmental, and sequential in nature. Effective Physical Education Content and Instruction offers the following: * Sequential units with block plans * Ready-to-use instructional tasks and warm-ups * Teaching cues * Explanations of common errors, their causes, and how to correct them * Content maps for each unit * A web resource that houses enlarged versions of the content maps, along with sample student awards and fair play guidelines The content maps provide a roadmap for success in the attainment of goals and outcomes. The cues in the text, which assist in the detection and correction of student errors, act as an additional aid to help students achieve success. Content Proven to Be Highly Effective The approach and content in Effective Physical Education Content and Instruction have been proven to increase student learning as compared to other approaches. In fact, in one of the largest-ever intervention studies on teaching effectiveness in physical education, teachers who were taught to use this approach and content significantly improved the quality of their teaching and produced some of the highest learning gains for students reported in the physical education literature. Book Organization The book is organized into three parts. Part I lays the groundwork for successful teaching-undestanding and acquiring content knowledge, then conceptualizing and organizing that content for teaching. Part II explores the keys to teaching fundamental skills-understanding early elementary locomotion, and teaching elementary gymnastic skills. Part III consists of specific sport units for elementary, middle, and high school students, with each chapter providing the following: * An explanation of the approach * Maps that define the content and its interrelationship * Block plans, warm-ups, and lesson organization * A series of instructional tasks, which include the following: the purpose of the instructional task; equipment needed for instruction; a description of the instructional task; teaching cues; common errors, their causes, and how to correct them; and diagrams, as applicable. Based on Extensive Research Effective Physical Education Content and Instruction is based on decade-long research conducted by Phillip Ward.

If you want to know how to be the best, you learn from the best. Two SHAPE America Physical Education Administrators of the Year share what it takes to be an outstanding administrator in Organization and Administration of Physical Education: Theory and Practice. Jayne Greenberg and Judy LoBianco, veteran leaders in the field with decades of successful administration experience, head a sterling list of contributors who have taught at the elementary, middle school, high school, and college levels in urban, suburban, and rural settings. Together, these contributors expound on the roles and responsibilities of physical education administrators through both theoretical and practical lenses. The result is a book that will be highly useful to undergraduate students looking to enter the field, as well as a resource for administrators in physical education leadership positions who are looking to acquire new skills and innovative ideas in each of the five areas of responsibility covered in the book. Part I covers leadership, organization, and planning. It explores leadership and management styles and presents practical theories of motivation, development, and planning. It also looks at how to plan for the essential components of an effective, quality physical education program. In part II, readers examine various curriculum and instruction models and navigate through curriculum theory and mapping. This section also offers guidance on planning events, including special programs and fundraising projects, and how to build a team and secure community connections for those special events. Part III helps administrators plan and design new school sites or renovate existing ones, and it presents contemporary concepts in universal design and sustainable environmental design. It also offers ideas on how to incorporate technology to meet the needs of 21st-century learners, including the use of social media and robotics in delivering instruction and communication. Part IV explores written, verbal, and electronic communication issues, as well as legal and human resource issues. Administrators learn how to lobby and advocate for physical education, how the legal system affects schools, and how to examine personnel issues, bullying, and harassment. Part V explains the fiscal responsibilities inherent in administrative positions, including budgeting, bidding, and purchasing. It also shows how administrators can secure funding independent of district or local funding, offering many examples of grants and fundraising opportunities with sample grant applications. Throughout the text, special features-Advice From the Field and Leadership in Action-share tips, nuggets of wisdom, and examples of administrators excelling in their various responsibilities. The book also comes with many practical examples of forms that are useful in carrying out responsibilities, and each chapter offers objectives, a list of key concepts, and review questions to facilitate the learning. In addition, the text comes with a web resource of supportive materials and documents. Organization and Administration of Physical Education: Theory and Practice, published with SHAPE America, offers the solid foundational theory that administrators need and shows how to put that theory into daily practice.

Developments in National Curriculum Physical Education have placed increasing emphasis on games including football as an area of activity at Key Stage 2. In doing so, it is intended that not only skill levels in the game will improve, but also that personal, social and physical skill levels are developed, and competencies such as good team work, perseverance and sportsmanship should be nurtured alongside the skills of the game. This practical book is designed to help primary school teachers deliver progressive and educationally worthwhile football lessons. It contains a series of lesson plans that tackle both content and delivery aspects and, consequently, offer useful teaching tips on Error Diagnosis And Correction, Methods Of Differentiation, Motivational strategies and organizational hints. The lesson plans adopt a prescriptive approach and this is done to make the material more accessible to the many inexperienced primary school football teachers.

It's never been more challenging to manage behavior and motivate students in a physical activity setting. There are more at-risk children and students with disabilities to manage. Physical activity professionals also face the unique challenge of providing instruction to large groups with limited resources and distractions galore. If not handled correctly, these challenges can quickly add up to chaos, ineffective instruction, and frustrated, burnt-out physical activity professionals. That's where the third edition of Positive Behavior Management in Physical Activity Settings, Third Edition comes in. This resource will help you not only overcome those and other discipline challenges, but also use tried-and-true, positive techniques to develop appropriate and responsible behaviors and good character among all learners. This new edition incorporates principles, methods, and instructional practices from psychology, special education, pedagogy, recreation, athletics, and coaching. It shows teachers, coaches, and recreation leaders how to apply the principles that have proven effective in schools, youth sport programs, and recreation sites. Positive Behavior Management in Physical Activity Settings offers this new material: * A new chapter on bullying, providing up-to-date information to help you recognize and manage such behavior within your group * A new chapter on children with special needs, including autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit disorder, learning disabilities, intellectual disabilities, traumatic brain injury, and behavioral/emotional disabilities * A new chapter on behavior management ethics and professionalism, to help those who are preparing to be physical activity professionals at the pre-service and in-service levels * New sections on motivating children who are overweight or obese, using the latest research to help you to encourage them to participate Also new to this edition are an instructor guide and a web resource. The instructor guide offers different sample syllabi, showing various ways to teach the course; sample assignments; answers to chapter review questions; suggested further readings; and useful websites and apps. The web resource supplies behavior management scenarios, sample forms (checklists, rubrics, certificates, worksheets) from the chapters, instructions for designing an Applied Behavior Analysis graph and a trifold display, useful websites and apps, and a glossary by chapter. This text provides you with evidence-based strategies in managing special needs populations, including designing a positive behavioral support (PBS) model and a behavioral intervention plan (BIP), as well as information on response to intervention (RTI). The authors have added a fourth section to this new edition. Part I details the challenges that professionals face in developing a positive learning environment, and shows readers how to be proactive in doing so. Part II outlines the interventions that physical activity professionals have successfully used in a variety of settings. This part includes chapters that discuss behavioral, humanistic, and biophysical approaches. The final chapter in this section addresses how to evaluate the behavior intervention. Part III explores behavior management with various populations, and offers the new chapters on bullying and on special needs children. In part IV, the authors discuss ethical and professional behavior of physical activity professionals relative to the application of behavior management techniques used with children and youth with a focus on professionalism. The final chapter will synthesize the information presented in this text and assist the reader to take the appropriate steps needed to develop a working, teaching, and behavior management portfolio. GUIDANCE TO MOTIVATE CHILDREN Positive Behavior Management in Physical Activity offers current and future K-12 physical educators, coaches, recreation specialists, and adapted physical education specialists guidance in motivating young people.
