With "Teaching Children Physical Education", present as well as future elementary physical educators will learn what master teachers actually do in lessons to make learning both enjoyable and developmentally appropriate for children. This book focuses solely on how to teach children physical education. Dr. George Graham - a university professor physical education teacher - integrates research-based information with first-hand experience to describe the decision-making processes used by master teachers in virtually every lesson they teach. Novice and experienced teachers will learn practical skills and techniques to help them motivate children to practise, build positive feelings, minimise off-task behaviour and discipline problems, create an atmosphere of learning, maximize learning, develop lesson content, use a problem solving approach, observe and analyse, provide feedback, and assess children's (and their own) progress. Readers will also benefit from chapter introductions and objectives, insights into practical experiences, videotape analysis suggestions, reflection questions, chapter summaries, and chapter references. These features make Teaching Children Physical Education an excellent undergraduate text for physical education students. It is also a valuable reference for in-service teachers. "Teaching Children Physical Education" is the text for the pedagogy course of the "American Master Teacher Program for Children's Physical Education". It's the first in a series of resources and courses designed to improve the teaching of physical education at the pre-school, infant, and primary levels. Successful completion of all courses and requirements in the programme leads to certification as a Master Teacher of Children's Physical Education.
