Movement Education: Developments in Classroom Instruction.
Gensemer, Robert E.
The concept of mind-body integration is applied to motor learning through the use of a problem-solving approach. Emphasis is on the inherent unity of cognitive and motor ability. Suggestions are given for learning exercises designed to encourage the total mental and physical growth of elementary and secondary school children. The material may also be used in a college-level education methods course. Examples are given of specific lessons, many of which require no special equipment, and samples of teacher-student dialogue are used to illustrate the teaching approach appropriate to the theory.
