Physical Education is now one of the foundation subjects of the National Curriculum for both primary and secondary school children. The Effective Teaching of Physical Education brings together the findings of research as well as the experiences and opinions of teacher-trainee students, newly qualified teachers and experienced teachers to provide practical help and advice for new entrants to the profession in their quest to become effective teachers of physical education. The book begins by investigating why people decide on a career in the teaching of physical education, what are considered to be the characteristics of good physical education teachers, and what it is like to be a student or newly qualified teacher in the early stages of teaching. The remainder of the book concentrates on the teaching skills and professional competencies needed to become an effective teacher of physical education, and the reader is encouraged to use the evaluation exercises provided to reflect upon and appraise their teaching expertise. Aimed at students, newly qualified teachers and school mentors supporting trainees on school-based I.T.T. courses, it is designed to help new entrants to the profession reflect on what others have experienced and the findings of research to draw up their own personal professional development plan.

Physical Education 5-11 is about lighting or relighting a fire in all those who have the privilege and the responsibility of teaching children physical education in Primary schools today. It is written at a time of great change: a revised Primary curriculum; an increased drive to raise achievement and potentially a narrowing of curricular scope in favour of literacy and numeracy. It is little wonder that teachers are looking for certainty and answers to questions such as:- What do I teach in PE? What do I need to know about children’s development? What does good teaching look like in PE? How can I assess such a practical subject effectively? This new and updated edition provides answers to those questions, covers issues in Physical Education and provides a wealth of practical advice on teaching across the stages of the new 2014 curriculum. Drawing upon the author’s experiences as a teacher, coach, lecturer and adviser, it delivers a justification for PE as an essential element in the Primary curriculum, imbues a theory into practice approach that provides readers with clarity, instils confidence and offers a licence to teach all practical aspects of PE effectively and creatively underpinned by knowledge of children’s development, their learning and the critical professional issues in PE today. This book is the essential companion to inform and inspire students and practising teachers in this most dynamic and exciting of subjects!
