The authors have revised, updated, and re-conceptualized the movement approach (skill theme approach) based on findings that have been shown to increase children#146;s learning and teacher effectiveness. Each chapter includes sample lesson plans designed to be teaching tools which will help transform the ideas discussed in the book. The content is aligned with the National Standards for Physical Education and NASPE#146;s guidelines for appropriate practices. It offers many sample tools for assessing childrens' learning and maintaining program accountability.This comprehensive text can be used across several courses including elementary physical education curriculum and instruction, educational gymnastics, educational dance, educational games, and movement foundations courses.
