Movement Education for Able-Bodied and Disabled Students in Regular or Special Settings.
Practical Pointers, v4 n10 May 1981
The paper introduces the concept of movement education for handicapped students and discusses implications of the concept for learning. Guidelines are given for planning, implementing, and evaluating the program. A sample lesson plan is followed by discussions of prerequisites of efficient movement and screening activities. Suggestions for movement experiences emphasizing such factors as space; force; time; flow; varied locomotion (galloping, sliding, twisting); and equipment (such as hurdles, ladders, beanbags) are made.
