Every Child a Winner . . . A Practical Approach to Movement Education.
Blackmarr, Syd; And Others
This document is divided into three parts. Part 1 introduces the Health and Optimum Physical Education project and explains that this project operates under the premise that movement education contributes to a child's total development. In part 2 four concepts are identified as the foundation for efficient and effective movement, and the way in which each can be integrated into a movement education program is explained. These four concepts are space awareness, body awareness, quality of movement, and relationships. In planning a program based on these concepts, teachers must assess student needs, establish broad goals to meet those needs, develop a long range planning schedule (so that one area is not overemphasized), and make daily lessons plans. (Sample lesson plans are given). Part 3 deals with teaching methods. Teachers are encouraged to examine all alternatives and choose the one(s) best suited to their goals. Examples in games, gymnastics, and dance are given to demonstrate what processes can be used to achieve objectives. The appendix includes health forms and lists of movement process categories, audiovisuals, and equipment. (PB)
