The Lifetime Sports-Oriented Physical Education Program.
Straub, William F.
This text presents a step-by-step approach to the infusion of lifetime sports into physical education programs. The first chapter explains and justifies the concept of lifetime sports. Next, survey of community resources is provided so that off-site facilities and supplementary personnel may be identified. Chapters three and four cover the organizational patterns and curriculum construction procedures of a lifetime sports program. In chapter six, attention is focused on measurement and evaluation procedures. Two types of evaluation are suggested--formative and summative. Chapter seven includes information about how to include lifetime sports in programs for exceptional children, particularly the physically handicapped. Chapter eight discusses public relations. Ideas are presented for the development of a public relations program to combat the idea that physical education programs are frills in the budget. The planning and design of facilities for lifetime sports is covered in chapter nine. Chapter ten addresses innovations in lifetime sports programs through discussion of applied research and pilot studies and the development of experimental schools. Each chapter concludes with a summary, study questions, and references for further study. The appendixes contain a questionnaire on sports preferences, a checklist for evaluation of program objectives, a list of sources for selected sports skill tests, and a checklist to aid those responsible for planning facilities.
