Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility Through Physical Activity (Paperback, Third Edition): Don R. Hellison Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility Through Physical Activity (Paperback, Third Edition)
Don R. Hellison
R722 Discovery Miles 7 220 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

"Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility Through Physical Activity," now entering its third edition, attests to author Don Hellison's ability to shape and develop character and responsibility in children. Perhaps the success of Hellison's book can be attributed to his status not only as a highly respected scholar-activist but as a teacher in the trenches working with inner-city kids.

Kids in any situation will benefit from the thoroughly updated material in this edition, which presents practical, proven, easy-to-implement ideas for teaching personal and social responsibility (TPSR) in school, after school, and in alternative settings. It also supplies direction in teaching affective and social moral goals, an in-depth look into teaching character development and values, and a method for helping students develop personal and social responsibility.

"Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility Through Physical Activity "offers much new material:

- Strategies for alternative schools, afterschool programs, and the emerging youth development movement

- Vignettes sprinkled throughout the chapters, written by TPSR instructors in various settings

- Several chapters that have been completely overhauled

- An expanded assessment chapter to help readers evaluate the impact of TPSR on their kids and apply the strategies

- One new chapter on combining responsibility-based youth development with teacher preparation in physical education

In addition, the book features "Kid Quotes" to help readers understand how kids respond to the TPSR approach, as well as forms and charts to help readers put the ideas and strategies to use.

The result is a field-tested book that is the accepted curricular model in the field--and a resource that will enable teachers to help their students grow into solid citizens both personally and socially.

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. It has been developed in collaboration with a team of master teachers who know the content and how to teach it. The result of their work is a rock-solid theoretical framework that offers practical applications, developmental progressions from beginner to advanced, and scheduling options. By using a framework that is proven to be effective (as evidenced by research), you can focus on tailoring the instructional plan to your students so they can acquire the sport skills they need, enjoy their participation in physical education, and make the most of their time in your class.

For students with moderate to severe disabilities, instruction in physical education can be a challenge. Many teachers struggle with understanding these students' complex needs, selecting appropriate content, and finding ways to motivate these students. While many educators consider the social aspects of inclusion a priority, the authors in this text stress active engagement with the curriculum and the use of grade-level outcomes to adapt learning for students with a range of abilities. One thing is certain: The keys to making physical education a positive learning experience are the physical education teachers and adapted physical education teachers who work with these students. This text is for you! Edited by experienced educators with expertise in general and adapted physical education programming, Physical Education for Children With Moderate to Severe Disabilities will serve as a valuable resource: * Offers comprehensive strategies for instruction, assessment, communication, collaborative practices, peer supports, and effective use of paraeducators * Describes unique equipment modifications and alternative programming suggestions * Includes sample lesson plans and assessments that you can use as is or use as models to create your own * Is applicable for children with moderate to severe disabilities in general physical education classes and self-contained PE environments Physical Education for Children With Moderate to Severe Disabilities was written by a team of higher education professionals, practicing physical educators, and adapted PE teachers. These contributors combine to bring a rich diversity and a variety of perspectives that ensure the content is relevant to all teachers. Through this comprehensive text, you will be able to make sure you are complying with the legal requirements associated with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act and the Every Student Succeeds Act, which require that children with disabilities be given the same opportunities for meaningful physical education as other children.

It's never been more challenging to teach physical education to children and adolescents. Between managing difficult behavior and adapting lessons for students with diverse needs, teachers have their hands full. Teaching Children and Adolescents Physical Education: Becoming a Master Teacher has been helping both new and experienced physical educators meet these challenges for many years, and this revised edition has been updated to address many of the new challenges that have emerged in the past decade. Expanded to address teaching across elementary, middle, and high school, this classic resource demonstrates the techniques and skills master teachers rely on. Many of these skills are illustrated with videotapes of actual K-12 teachers in action. This already-successful text goes beyond pedagogy to include concrete curriculum strategies for making classes vibrant, fun, and developmentally appropriate. Written in conversational language, the book is readily applicable. Teaching Children and Adolescents Physical Education has been refreshed to be more valuable than ever to veteran and future physical educators navigating the elementary, middle, and high school environment. New features include the following: * New research and examples from the world of secondary physical education * Technology tips and app ideas contributed by real physical educators * Linked directly to national standards and grade-level outcomes (SHAPE America, 2014), a new approach to planning and teaching lessons to meet the needs of all students * Many sample task sheets and assessment examples for middle and high school In addition, this resource features three new chapters that add even more depth to the topics covered. The chapters address long-term planning, writing, and teaching the lesson plan. The value of this book can be attributed to the authors' years of experience teaching physical education in elementary, middle, and high school. George Graham, Eloise Elliott, and Steve Palmer understand all aspects of quality physical education and the teaching challenges that come with the territory-because they have been there. Emphasizing real-world strategies, the authors weave instructional scenarios throughout the book. Readers will see in action the decision-making process master teachers go through when writing and teaching lesson plans. Because every class is different, this resource also highlights how to plan for diverse students and how to adjust lessons accordingly. The text is packed with tried-and-true advice for motivating students to practice, building positive feelings, observing and analyzing, providing feedback, and assessing students through formative assessment. Examples show what effective physical education instruction really looks like in secondary gymnasiums and on playgrounds. Rich with firsthand advice and insight, this book will guide educators toward becoming master teachers of physical education.

This concise and up to date text looks specifically at children's learning through movement and the implications of this understanding for practice in early years settings. Movement is a fundamental way in which children learn, so it is vital that early years students and practitioners have a full knowledge of the subject in order to encourage and provide a range of sensory opportunities for the children in their care. The book begins by identifying early movements, examining their links to the brain and the benefits they bring. It looks at how to create movement spaces and opportunities within provision to support key learnings and then moves on to investigate two key issues: supporting children's early writing and the different ways boys and girls learn through movement. Each chapter includes key messages, case studies to contextualise the issues and reflective questions to promote deeper understanding.

Focused on physical literacy and measurable outcomes, empowering physical educators to help students meet the Common Core standards, and coming from a recently renamed but longstanding organization intent on shaping a standard of excellence in physical education, "National Standards & Grade-Level Outcomes for K-12 Physical Education" is all that and much more. Created by SHAPE America -- Society of Health and Physical Educators (formerly AAHPERD) -- this text unveils the new National Standards for K-12 Physical Education. The standards and text have been retooled to support students' holistic development.

This is the third iteration of the National Standards for K-12 Physical Education, and this latest version features two prominent changes:

- The term "physical literacy" underpins the standards. It encompasses the three domains of physical education (psychomotor, cognitive, and affective) and considers not only physical competence and knowledge but also attitudes, motivation, and the social and psychological skills needed for participation.

- Grade-level outcomes support the national physical education standards. These measurable outcomes are organized by level (elementary, middle, and high school) and by standard. They provide a bridge between the new standards and K-12 physical education curriculum development and make it easy for teachers to assess and track student progress across grades, resulting in physically literate students.

In developing the grade-level outcomes, the authors focus on motor skill competency, student engagement and intrinsic motivation, instructional climate, gender differences, lifetime activity approach, and physical activity. All outcomes are written to align with the standards and with the intent of fostering lifelong physical activity.

"National Standards & Grade-Level Outcomes for K-12 Physical Education" presents the standards and outcomes in ways that will help preservice teachers and current practitioners plan curricula, units, lessons, and tasks. The text also

- empowers physical educators to help students meet the Common Core standards;

- allows teachers to see the new standards and the scope and sequence for outcomes for all grade levels at a glance in a colorful, easy-to-read format; and

- provides administrators, parents, and policy makers with a framework for understanding what students should know and be able to do as a result of their physical education instruction.

The result is a text that teachers can confidently use in creating and enhancing high-quality programs that prepare students to be physically literate and active their whole lives.
