Every child a winner : a practical approach to movement education by Syd Blackmarr( Book )

5 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document is divided into three parts. Part 1 introduces the Health and Optimum Physical Education project and explains that this project operates under the premise that movement education contributes to a child's total development. In part 2 four concepts are identified as the foundation for efficient and effective movement, and the way in which each can be integrated into a movement education program is explained. These four concepts are space awareness, body awareness, quality of movement, and relationships. In planning a program based on these concepts, teachers must assess student needs, establish broad goals to meet those needs, develop a long range planning schedule (so that one area is not overemphasized), and make daily lessons plans. (Sample lesson plans are given). Part 3 deals with teaching methods. Teachers are encouraged to examine all alternatives and choose the one(s) best suited to their goals. Examples in games, gymnastics, and dance are given to demonstrate what processes can be used to achieve objectives. The appendix includes health forms and lists of movement process categories, audiovisuals, and equipment. (Pb)

Zion, Georgia, in July and August 1977 in cooperation with the Arts Experiment Station of Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College. Topics of research were hymn singing, vernacular architecture, occupations, foodways, jokes, and stories from the region, which were documented through approximately 300 hours of audio interviews and recordings made at local events. Subjects of photographs taken during the research include people interviewed for the project; copies of their family photographs; vernacular houses, barns, and outbuildings, including log buildings; tools, furniture, birdhouses, and yard art; wells; tobacco curing, harvesting, warehouses, auctions, farms, and tobacco workers; peanut, cotton, soybean, corn, and wheat fields; crop dusting; churches; religious services, including baptisms, prayers, sermons, hymn singing, tent revivals, and church suppers; barbecue cooking; breakfasts; quilts, crochet, and basket work; woodcarving; vernacular boats, boat repair, and boat building; fishing; graveyards, gravesites and markers; grocery stores, restaurants, dry goods stores, a barber shop, business and roadside signs; a piano repair shop; aerial photographs; gathering wild herbs; trees, landscapes, swamps, rivers; box turtles, catfish, cattle, and dogs. A focus of the fieldwork was hymn singing conventions and gospel singing of white and African American residents, as well as fiddling and old-time music. The collection includes photographs and sound recordings of Hugh McGraw, Raymond Hamrick, J.C. Cooper, and others leading sacred harp singing; other congregational and gospel singing groups; African American children's games, singing games, handclapping, hambone; old-time and bluegrass music featuring local fiddle, guitar, piano, and banjo players.
