All Active, All Successful: Developing Teacher Competency in Elementary School Physical Education. Designed for Children Series.
Arnett, Chappelle
This guide is designed to assist the beginning teacher to develop competency in teaching movement activities in the elementary school grades. A child-centered approach is offered for teaching all areas of the program: creative movement and dance, educational gymnastics, and games and sports. Teacher experiences are sequenced by way of progressive modules that enable teachers to acquire knowledge and strategies for effective learning and classroom management. The modules and lessons received field testing at Western Washington State College. Discussed are the goals of the new approach to physical education-movement education, movement analysis as a foundation for all activities, and teaching physical education based upon an individualized approach utilizing child-centered methods. Human growth and perceptual-motor development are viewed in relation to their implications for the movement education program. Organization and teaching strategies are covered including: guidelines for development of lessons; planning lessons; teaching strategies; methods; learning centers or activity stations; teaching procedures; and an approach to class discipline. Guidelines, based on the following six objectives, are offered for student evaluation: self-concept; learning how to learn, to discover, and to create; self-discipline; cooperation and interaction; movement efficiency--perceptual motor development, physical fitness, sports skills; and cognitive concepts.
