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.

Focusing primarily on motor skills, the book explains how to -analyze each skill being taught; -structure tasks to promote success; -develop tasks that are fun, engaging, and safe; -design tasks that stimulate cognitive engagement; and -assess participants' learning as part of the task. The text takes the most current research on learning and teaching movement activity and translates it into practical, down-to-earth suggestions for coaches and teachers. Using examples both in the gym and on the playing field, the book shows teachers and coaches alike how to develop instructional tasks that will keep participants interested and engaged—ultimately helping them to succeed. Loaded with student-friendly features, this book is an ideal resource for physical education and coaching methods or pedagogy courses. Each chapter includes a statement of objectives, learning activities, a summary, and extensive references. Effective task design is at the heart of effective teaching.
