Developing Sport Skills. A Dynamic Interplay of Task, Learner, and Teacher. Monograph 2. Motor Skills: Theory into Practice.
Arnold, Ree K. Spaeth
This monograph on sport skill development: (1) raises questions concerning the teaching and learning of sport skills; (2) provides a general information base from which answers may be derived; and (3) identifies teaching strategies which appear to facilitate sport skill learning. The monograph's intent is to raise questions as well as to suggest answers, in order to provide a framework within which physical education teachers can examine sport tasks, learning processes, and teaching techniques. In the introduction, a review of the general approach and content concerning sport skill development discusses the need to re-examine teaching and illustrates the general approach to motor learning. The second chapter focuses on motor tasks and analysis of sport skills, including a review of motor skill taxonomies, and the definition and assessment of motor task skills. The learner and analysis of the learning process is the topic of the third chapter, which discusses an information-processing model, the relation of information processing to performance and learning, and factors influencing information processing ability. The fourth chapter discusses the teacher's role in facilitating skill development. Topics covered include learning stages and teacher responsibilities. (CJ)
