9780205264186: Instructional Models for Physical Education

This text introduces Models-Based Instruction for physical education. It presents effective teaching models such as Cooperative Learning, Personalized Systems of Instruction (PSI), and Direct Instruction clearly and articulately. It also covers models that have been specifically developed for teaching PE, such as Sport Education and Tactical Games. This book brings together in one text a number of teaching models that have appeared in isolated books and journals. By presenting a Models-Based perspective, Instructional Models for Physical Education will help PE teachers learn, select, and practice these comprehensive patterns of teaching.An instructional model is a unique plan of action, designed to facilitate certain learning outcomes for students. Each model establishes its own pattern of decision making, classroom operations, and responsibilities for the teacher and students. After each model is explained, it is followed with examples of lesson plans and suggestions for adapting the model to various teaching contexts with appropriate learning activities.

Review:

Because of the importance given to teaching skills and the complete discussion of each instructional model, I have found that this book is imperative for teaching a methods course in secondary physical education. . . . The advantage of the web material is that it changes passive reading into reading that is more dynamic and interactive --Alexander Vigo, Towson University

This is the only textbook that I have used continuously year after year. It is a good text for students who are developing their skills to become teachers, and it is also great resource for practicing teachers. I always tell my students this is one of the books they should hold on to. . . . [The book's figures] have been more than helpful in clarifying some of the more salient aspects of each chapter. --Ken Hansen, California State Polytechnic University

The third edition has presented readers with several updates and improvements, along with the new website. It remains THE reference text for all things relating to instructional models for physical education. --Mark Bowler, University of Bedfordshire
