Adolescence. Basic Stuff Series II. 9.
Kneer, Marian E.; And Others
This booklet is intended for physical education teachers of adolescents. Physical activities are designed to enhance the students' knowledge of exercise physiology, kinesiology, psycho-social humanities, and motor learning and how this knowledge relates to health, appearance, achievement, psycho-social development, aesthetics, and coping. The instructional activities emphasize learning experiences in which students engage in physical activity as a means for increasing knowledge of the fundamentals of human movement. Each chapter identifies what students need to know, what they can do, and what they can accomplish while getting ready for participation in different activities, while participating in the activity, and following participation. In addition, each chapter concludes with suggestions to help teachers develop program ideas and additional instructional activities for the concept upon which the chapter is based. The objective of the overall program is to assist adolescents in developing personal meaning and satisfaction through movement. (JD)
