Biological Awareness: Statements for Self-Discovery.
Edington, D.W.; Cunningham, Lee
This guide to biological awareness through guided self-discovery is based on 51 single focus statements concerning the human body. For each statement there are explanations of the underlying physiological principles and suggested activities and discussion ideas to encourage understanding of the statement in terms of the human body's functions, performance, and reactions to today's environment. The statements are divided into five major categories: (1) the various classifications of exercise and the uniqueness of each; (2) composition of the body and the value of health-related activities such as controlling weight; (3) control of muscle functions and the body's capacity for motor learning; (4) physiological mechanisms at work when a person exercises; and (5) explanation of how the body adapts to exercise versus sedentary living Suggestions are made for incorporating biological awareness lessons into the high school and college curriculum.
