Teaching Archery.
Wilson, Lura
The ancient sport of archery is particularly appropriate for physical education in the space age. It is a projectile sport: in order to hit the gold, the archer must use many of the principles that scientists used in putting men on the moon. Since 1972, when the United States team returned from the Summer Olympic Games with two gold medals in target archery, the sport has become increasingly popular with Americans of all ages and physical capabilites, including the handicapped. Because it requires close coordination between the eyes and back, shoulder, arm, hand, and finger muscles, archery is considered an important rehabilitation activity for paraplegics and is one of the major events in the National Wheelchair Games. "Teaching Archery" is the first in a series of curriculum guides for group instruction in leisure time activity. This curriculum guide is divided into four major sections. Section 1 discusses facilities and guidelines for selecting and/or making equipment. Section 2, entitled "Teaching and Learning," outlines the preliminaries, a suggested six-session plan of instruction, strategies for group teaching, problem diagnosis and prescription, quick analogy teaching cues, assessment and evaluation, crossdisciplinary activities, and extra class opportunities. Section 3 contains a glossary of terms, and section 4 lists selected resource materials. (JMK)
