A Movement Approach to Educational Gymnastics.
Morison, Ruth
This book, divided into three parts, discusses the principles and practice of functional movement in terms of the full range of educational gymnastics. It can be used for elementary school, high school, and college students, since teachers can modify or extend the suggestions according to the experience and ability of the classes. Part one, "Purpose and Principles," discusses man's need for movement, the purpose of gymnastics, and principles and analysis of functional movement. Part two, "Material," discusses (a) the natural movement of children, (b) actions emphasizing locomotion, (c) actions emphasizing balance, (d) handling, (e) partner and group work, and (f) movement. Part three, "Planning Teaching and Observation," discusses (a) content, structure, and development of the lesson; (b) themes for lessons; (c) progression; (d) observation and teaching; and (e) safety and observation. A bibliography of books related to the art of movement, and scientific and other aspects of movement is included. (PD)
