At a time when there is a great possibility that physical education programs are eliminated or minimized in schools, it is imperative that professional educators argue vehemently for physical education based on a curriculum that is steered by the teaching of not only physical, but social and cognitive skills. This book examines four concepts that promote social development and learning in physical education. The literature and data presented indicate that the concepts of responsibility, conflict resolution, problem solving, and cooperative learning can be learned in physical education class. It is worthwhile, indeed necessary, for physical educators to teach lessons that foster the development of these concepts. The literature tells us that the school environment can be improved by shaping social education through physical activity and that movement is a vital part of learning and thinking. The results presented in this book support the value of the physical educator in schools. What happens in the physical education classroom can, and should positively impact the school community-ultimately producing students who benefit society.
