Teaching Skills and Health-Related Fitness through a Preservice Gymnastics Program
Donham-Foutch, Shae
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance (JOPERD), v78 n5 p35-38, 44 May-Jun 2007
Children who do not develop a foundation of basic motor skills are less likely to participate in regular physical activity. An excellent way of teaching basic motor skills, as well as health-related fitness, is through gymnastics. Many young teachers, however, think that teaching gymnastics is too challenging and do not know how to incorporate it into their program. A preservice gymnastics program can give preservice students experience in teaching gymnastics, while benefiting children in the community.
