ISBN10: 0023247010

Summary: Here is an exciting new edition of this very practical text whose comprehensive coverage of skill presentation, safety, spotting, and teaching techniques gives students a solid foundation in the fundamentals of teaching gymnastics.
It's the text that emphasizes individual development not a "perfect 10"! The new Third Edition includes discussion of the new plyometric training concept in the conditioning chapter ...places "skills sheets" more in each chapter...offers a wealth of excellent new illustrations...and combines it all in a compact, workbook style presentation with perforated pages that are easy to use for both student and instructor.
Teaching Basic Gymnastics, Third Edition, offers future physical education teachers a virtual blueprint for developing students' skills in individual and dual activities, pyramids, and modern rhythmic well as for guiding their performance on gymnastic apparatus.
In addition, it offers realistic "tear out" Worksheets for Grading that cover testing procedures for all gymnastics skills presented. Features

  • Emphasis on individual development encourages future teachers to stress to their students that achieving one's personal best is more valuable that "doing it perfectly". This focus helps students see the value of gymnastics for all students, not just future Olympic candidates.
  • Limiting coverage to skills considered "beginning" and "advanced beginning" keeps text coverage within the likely range of novice teachers' time constraints and available equipment. Students learn to teach fundamentals well, within the confines of a typical school physical education program.
  • Coverage encompasses the skills commonly taught in school programs, and requires only apparatus usually available: Tumbling, pommel horse, vaulting, still rings, balance beam, parallel bars, pyramids, and rhythmic gymnastics.
  • A common format for each skill presentation includes discussion of the performance technique, spotting techniques, common errors and variations to look for, and common ways to exit a movement.
  • Individual chapters on conditioning and biomechanics provide thorough, common sense application of these key components.
  • Numerous drawings show activities in an easy-to-follow sequence that helps students "see" each action and assists them in teaching and spotting.
  • Pedagogical features include chapter introductions, and end-of- chapter questions that can be used as self-tests, discussion questions, or for in-class quizzes. less
