Synopsis: This second edition shows non-specialists how to develop a realistic and workable approach to teaching physical education. It aims to make physical education worthwhile, practical and fun for both students and teachers. The text provides the reader with a basic physical education curriculum and concrete, realistic, user-friendly suggestions for how to implement this curriculum. It is written specifically for the non-specialist and explains how to work together with students to plan, instruct and assess the programme. Key features include over 60 reproducible lesson plans with helpful introductions as they appear in each chapter. A Lesson Plan finder at the start of the book provides teachers the chance to find a lesson plan for the appropriate level. At-a-glance examples of putting concepts into practice, guidelines, tips and facts are also included and key terms are introduced at the beginning of each chapter, highlighted within the chapter and defined in a glossary at the back of the book.
About the Author: Katherine T. Thomas, PhD, is an associate professor of health and human performance at Iowa State University, where she teaches a variety of teacher education and motor development courses. Dr. Thomas also has taught at Arizona State University, Southeastern Louisiana University, and Southern University at Baton Rouge. Her research and numerous publications focus on skill acquisition in sport and exercise and the relation of physical activity to health. She has external grant funding in excess of $800,000 to study physical activity and is the physical activity consultant for the USDA’s Team Nutrition. However, Dr. Thomas says that the most relevant experiences to the writing of this book were her early positions as a graduate assistant and as an instructor in elementary schools and a college teaching laboratory. These experiences enabled her to find out firsthand what does and doesn’t work in a physical education class.
Dr. Thomas is a member of the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD) and the North American Society for the Psychology of Sport and Physical Activity (NASPSPA). She received her doctorate in physical education from Louisiana State University in 1981.

In addition to her 25 years as a teacher educator, Dr. Lee has 10 years of experience as a physical educator at elementary schools in Louisiana and Texas.

Dr. Lee is a member of the American Educational Research Association (AERA), and she has received the Scholar Lecture Award from the AERA’s Special Interest Group on Learning and Instruction in Physical Education. She is a member of AAHPERD and has received an Honor Award from AAHPERD’s Curriculum and Instruction Academy. Dr. Lee earned her doctorate in physical education from Texas Woman’s University in 1972.
