This book is designed for physical education teachers at the elementary level. It includes a discussion of physical education for grades seven and eight, which provides specific background knowledge for teachers who did not receive adequate training for this age group.

Special emphasis is given to the nature of motor learning, including perceptual motor learning, the analysis of motor movement, and the development of attitudes and interests. Theories of learning and behavior have been interpreted in terms of practical applications in the teaching of physical education. Suggestions are made for activities suited to needs, abilities, and interests of students at each level from nursery school through eighth grade. Discussions of planning and organizing the program, motivating the learners, and evaluating the students and the program are included. Chapter headings include: foundations of physical education; how and why children learn; techniques for effective planning and organization; implementing equipment; rhythms, dance, and singing games; lead-up and team games; tumbling; classroom games; aquatics; nursery school physical education; games for the playground and self-directed play; and extraclass programs. The appendixes cover: motor skill test sources for intermediate and junior high school grades; physical fitness tests for the educable mentally retarded; improvised equipment; and an index of dances, games, and stunts.

4 editions published between 1972 and 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A basic text on physical education for the handicapped, this edition is divided into four major sections containing detailed discussion of the general topic area under consideration. The first section presents basic information about historical background, general patterns of growth and development, the nature of motor learning, and the psychology of the handicapped. The chapters in the second section are concerned with the practical aspects of providing a good physical education program for handicapped students. Ideas are suggested for effective planning and operation of the program and for instructional and evaluative procedures that foster motor learning. Section three discusses disorders that occur commonly in school-age children. To enable physical education teachers to offer appropriate programs for these students, the chapters on the various kinds of disorders briefly describe their etiology and pathology, discuss special consideration in planning the programs, and suggest kinds of activities that may be offered. The focus of the final section is on activities and programs for handicapped students. Ideas are included for modifying rules and regulations, adapting playing techniques and equipment, and devising new versions of the activities. (Author/JD)
