Summary

This easy-to-use text/CD-ROM package prepares future teachers to teach physical education using a student-focused, developmentally appropriate approach. Students will learn how to use developmental games, dance, and gymnastics to teach fundamental movement skills and concepts that center on what's individually-appropriate for each student based on their motor, cognitive, and affective development.


"Developmental Physical Education for All Children," has been thoroughly updated and revised by world-renowned authors David L. Gallahue and Frances Cleland Donnelly. The textbook provides both the sound philosophical foundation and the tools required to build and improve solid programs that benefit all students. Parts I, II, and III ("The Learner," "The Teacher," "The Developmental Program") present background information that is essential for successful teaching. Parts IV, V, and VI ("The Skill Themes," "The Content Areas," "The Program Strands") focus on developmental movement experiences for preschool and elementary school children.

The CD-ROM accompanying the text is packed with lesson plans, assessment sheets, and worksheets that are ready to use and teacher-tested. Forget about purchasing a separate lesson book-all the practical tools future teachers need to teach specific developmental physical education lessons are included here!


Student-friendly textbook features

  • Reality Checks-real-life situations and challenging discussion questions
  • Teaching tips that not only make sense but also are teacher-proven to work
  • Terms to remember within each chapter and a corresponding glossary
