This document summarizes 20 articles and books which stress the importance of movement in the overall development of the human species. Each summary ranges in length from 100 to 200 words and often includes direct quotations. A wide range of movement activities suitable for people of all ages (from infants to adults) are discussed. Many summaries also provide explanations of the activities' importance for both child and adult development. Specific topics are (1) materials and inservice training for elementary and early childhood teachers to implement movement education programs; (2) the relationship between large motor skills and learning to read; (3) remediation programs which use movement activities for adult prisoners and for children; (4) providing an environment and activities to encourage physical movement in infants; and (5) using movement to music, imitation of emotions, and dance to teach children motor skills, make them sensitive to their own and others' emotions, and encourage creativity. It is hoped that the literature on movement will influence educators to integrate physical education into all areas of teaching. (CB)
