Summary

Elementary Classroom Teachers as Movement Educatorsis a practical guide written specifically for the elementary classroom teacher (not for the physical educator). It is designed to inform future elementary classroom teachers, as movement educators, about the discipline of physical education and the role they can play in producing physically active and healthy children. The text covers the variety of situations in which elementary classroom teachers may find themselves with respect to the physical education time of their students, from supporting a physical education teacher to managing a physical education program on their own. It provides a strong introduction to fundamental physical education concepts as well as hundreds of sample activities and lessons..
