Description - Teaching Elementary Physical Education by Ellen Martin
Teaching Elementary Physical Education: Strategies for the Classroom Teacher gives elementary education teachers the tools and strategies they need to teach physical education using a skills-based approach. Designed for the non-physical education teacher, the textbook provides a shorter, more focused presentation of how and what to teach in physical education. For many elementary education students, this course is the only exposure they will have to teaching physical education. As such, Teaching Elementary Physical Education: Strategies for the Classroom Teacher builds a strong foundation in the subject, featuring just the right amount of coverage on key topics including safety, child development, developing a PE curriculum, assessment, management, and discipline. The text's skills-theme approach focuses on teaching broadly applicable movements, such as throwing and catching, instead of specific games.
