Knowledge and understanding in physical education by Physical Education, and Recreation American Association for Health( Book )

9 editions published between 1969 and 1973 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This manual represents an attempt to summarize and organize the intellectual content of physical education (I.E., the facts and understandings upon which the exercises and activities of the physical education programs are based). It is designed for a two-fold purpose: (1) to serve as a basis of instruction which lends itself to evaluation through written tests (in particular, the standardized tests being developed by Educational Testing Service of Princeton in conjunction with aahper), and (2) to be used, evaluated, and refined by classroom teachers and physical education specialists. The essential skills and concepts of physical education are outlined under three major headings (Activity Performance, Effects of Activity, and Factors Modifying Participation in Activities and Effects of Participation). Each item is accompanied by "factual statements describing the skill or concept, stating its importance, analyzing it scientifically, and noting its application or relationship to performance." Each concept has been graded according to its appropriateness for the elementary, junior, and/or senior level of instruction, so that there is a progression from the simple to the more complex concept. Also included are brief reviews of the nature and use of standardized tests and of the manual itself. (Author/ES)

This book covers the national conference and consultation in Leisure and the Quality of Life held in the leisure-oriented, residential community of Rancho La Costa, California, in March of 1970. Cosponsored by the American Association for Health, Physical Education, and Recreation (aahper) and the American Institute of Planners (aip), the conference explored the leisure dimension of our future environment and what it can contribute to improving the quality of life for all Americans in the next 50 years. More specifically, the consultation sought to understand the cumulative effect of leisure on the environment, to link professional and public opinion, to provide wider national participation in policy discussions, and to determine implications and directions for the major institutions of society. The conference plan was designed to include a variety of methods of presenting content material and to permit participatory involvement by all those attending. These delegates from 25 states and Canada represented a variety of disciplines and organizations; policy implications and national goals were seen from the viewpoint of government, industry, labor, social agencies, education, and the lay community.
