EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

In order to become a more effective practitioner every teacher needs to have a sound understanding of the theoretical, social and historical context in which their work takes place. Understanding Primary Physical Education goes further than any other textbook in exploring the development of physical education teaching at the primary and elementary level, drawing together important research from across the educational and sociological literature. The book goes beyond everyday teaching practice at an operational level to encourage students, trainee teachers and researchers to develop a critical understanding of policy, process and practice in primary physical education. By rooting everyday documents and everyday issues in a broader, connected educational and developmental landscape, this book challenges casual assumptions and encourages a better, more thoughtful teaching practice. It is an essential companion for any degree level course in primary physical education.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Look at Physical Education learning opportunities beyond the PE lesson With more sport professions and professionals having an interest in children's development in sport, this book looks at the increased significance for effectively developing Physical Education and enhancing the curriculum. The traditional view of schools acting as the sole source of education has extended to embrace learning outside of the curriculum. This physical education resource looks at how to maximise learning opportunities away from PE lessons and how to use them to enhance Physical Education curricula. It encourages those with a vested interest in developing sporting plans, to: look at setting the right foundations look in the right places make the right partnerships develop programmes for extended learning for the right reasons. The book contains ideas and principles that are based upon research, good practice and, most importantly, experience. It has been written to explain how the principles can be adapted for the different stakeholders in sport, regardless of their involvement, access or funding streams.
