Contemporary Elementary and Middle School Physical Education Conference (9th, Atlanta, Georgia, January 22-24, 1987).
Jones, Margaret A., Ed.
The conference reported in these proceedings focused on the sharing of recent innovations, successful programming and teaching concepts, and research in children's physical education. Materials are presented in three sections, one for each day of the conference. The first day's agenda included presentations by nationally known physical educators on such subjects as teaching for skilled movement, biomechanics for the physical education teacher, clinical skills for supervising student teachers, and a developmental approach to dance and music, as well as a tour of movement pre-schools. The two remaining days were designed to provide an open forum for educators from throughout the United States and elsewhere and consisted of well over 100 activity and position paper sessions covering a range of teaching approaches including computer applications, nutrition, motivation, games and sports, various kinds of dance, object-control skills, fitness for the disabled, eurhythmics, and specific play and exercise activities ranging from jump rope to boomerang throwing and from bicycling to juggling.
