Brian, Ali; Ward, Phillip; Goodway, Jacqueline D.; Sutherland, Sue
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v85 n2 p32-37 2014
Softball is taught in many physical education programs throughout the United States. This article describes modifications that maximize learning outcomes and that address the National Standards and safety recommendations. The modifications focus on tasks and equipment, developmentally appropriate motor-skill acquisition, increasing number of trials, and moderate-to-vigorous physical activity. Readers are provided with a continuum of choices for equipment and activity types, as well as a 10-day sample unit for middle school.
