Wisconsin Univ., Stevens Point. Dept. of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation.
This report of the 1972 Distinguished Achievement Award Entry from the University of Wisconsin describes the Children's Motor Development Program which is designed to give student teachers experience in elementary physical education methods through volunteer laboratory training. After a review of the development of the program, the following opportunities which the program provided are listed: (a) the study of gross motor patterns, motor development levels, fine motor skills, and perceptual motor development of preschool children; (b) the design of individual programs to improve developmental progress of the child; and (c) the improvement of the child's motor skills, knowledge of himself, and adjustment to the school's environment are discussed. The relationship of this program to other university and community programs is stressed. (BRB)
