Elementary Physical Education: More Than Just Games.
Turner, Lowell F.; Turner, Susan Lilliman
The author's main objective in compiling this book on elementary physical education was to give both the classroom teacher and specialist a simple, yet practical, model for an individualized physical education program stressing movement education with a theme-oriented approach. This model is meant to augment or supplement the current program to the degree desired without requiring a previous period of formalized training. The book provides the reader with more than 500 movement problems and suggestions for the new physical education. Included in the first chapter are fifty theme-oriented movement lessons. Each of the thirteen themes begins with a lesson utilizing no apparatus and is followed by two or more lessons with different pieces of small equipment. At the end of the chapter, eight additional movement lessons are available for work on large apparatus. Complete directions are included to simplify implementation. The second chapter offers ideas for motivation, out-of-class assignments, and evaluation that will assist the reader in supplementing a program. The final chapter is an illustrated section on information concerning purchasing, construction, and ideas for using the twenty-five items of inexpensive and homemade equipment essential in the physical education classroom.
