Summary: Learning Activities for Life Span Motor Development Third Edition has been completely reorganized and expanded. It corresponds directly to the reorganized and updated textbook Life Span Motor Development, third edition. The learning activity guide, which replaces the old lab manual, features 49 learning experiences that may be used without laboratory equipment to take students through the procedures for collecting, analyzing, and interpreting data in motor developmen ...show moret.
Each chapter in the textbook is now represented by a chapter in the learning activity guide, and each chapter in the learning activity guide has at least one learning experience. The learning activities provide students with hands-on experience in motor development, which allows students to experience, understand, and apply the topics presented in each chapter of the textbook. Not only can the activity guide be used in a lab setting, but it also can be used by the instructor for tests and homework assignments. The ready-made activities make teaching easier for instructors by reducing planning time and focusing instructors' attention on the most important elements in the textbook.
A wide variety of typical motor development measurement tools and issues have been addressed in this edition. Activities cover these topics:
The video clips of developmental sequences on the CD-ROM benefit instructors tremendously because they no longer have to arrange a live experience for the students. Students benefit from seeing the sequences because they can play the same sequences over and over and view the sequences in slow motion.
This learning activity guide helps students understand and apply the model of constraints approach that was introduced in the third edition of the undergraduate textbook Life Span Motor Development. Students will be challenged to identify the influence of the various interactions possible among individual, environment, and task constraints within a movement context. ...show less
