This practical and accessible workbook is designed to support student physical education teachers as they develop their basic teaching skills, and increase their broader knowledge and understanding.
A Practical Guide to Teaching Physical Education in the Secondary School provides a wealth of practical activities and training materials, underpinned by relevant theory, which have been developed through the authors' vast experience of working with student teachers. These activities provide opportunities for student physical education teachers to analyze their learning and performance. The book has been designed for students to write in directly, and so provide a useful record of progress. Case studies are also included, as are examples of existing good practice and a range of tried-and-tested strategies.
The book has been written to complement Learning to Teach Physical Education in the Secondary School: A Companion to School Experience, 2nd edition (edited by Susan Capel), and can be used to reinforce some of the basic teaching skills covered in this textbook. But the book can be used equally successfully as a standalone book. It has been designed to be used by student teachers, on their own or with others, or by school- or university-based tutors, with student teachers, to develop and/or reinforce their understanding about some of the important aspects of learning to teach physical education.
