Life Span Motor Development, Sixth Edition With Web Study Guide, uses the model of constraints in discussing reasons for changes in movement throughout the life span, Focusing on assessment more heavily than previous editions, this updated edition encourages students to examine how the interactions of the individual, environment, and task bring about changes in a person’s movements. The principles of motor development are presented in an accessible manner so that even readers with minimal movement science background will comprehend the material. A key component of the sixth edition is an improved web study guide featuring revised lab activities and better functionality. New to this edition, lab activity record sheets and questions are available as fillable documents so that students can complete and submit them electronically, resulting in increased efficiency and reduced paperwork for instructors. In several labs, guided assessments teach students to observe video and categorize movements accurately. These assessments cue students to look at particular parts of the movement and guide students through questions, answers, and feedback. Then students are provided opportunities for unguided assessments via video clips or live observation, putting into practice what they have learned in the guided assessments. There are also over 100 new video clips in the web study guide, including a comprehensive video diary of the motor development milestones in the first nine months of a baby’s life. Life Span Motor Development, Sixth Edition, contains several other updates that are appealing to instructors and students alike: • A new full-color interior provides for a more engaging presentation of the material. • Updated research includes Generation R studies and connections to fitness and motor skills. • An updated presentation package and image bank, plus a test package and chapter quizzes, are included. • An instructor guide includes recommendations on using the lab activities in the web study guide both in and out of class. • Multiple learning exercises that were previously part of the web resource have been moved to the book to allow the video-rich lab activities to occupy students’ learning time when they are online As in past editions, students understand how maturational age and chronological age are distinct and how functional constraints affect motor skill development and learning. It also covers normal and abnormal developmental issues across the full life span, especially in the formative years. The text shows how the four components of physical fitness—cardiorespiratory endurance, strength, flexibility, and body composition—interact to affect a person’s movements over the life span. It also describes how relevant social, cultural, psychosocial, and cognitive influences can affect a person’s movements. Significant updates focus on assessment, including new figures that help to explain in detail the functional constraints approach to assessment. Life Span Motor Development, Sixth Edition, not only provides students with the observational skills necessary for assessing motor development, but it also expertly ties the information to real life. The text continues to emphasize the application of motor development concepts to the real world by beginning each chapter with an example of a common experience and then revisiting that experience at the end of the chapter, allowing readers to apply the material to the example. The book also retains the objectives; running glossary; and key points, sidebars, and application questions throughout each chapter. Life Span Motor Development, Sixth Edition, encompasses the most current research in motor development. It is enhanced with practical online resources for instructors and students, making the concepts of motor development come alive. The text gives students a solid foundation not only for beginning their studies in motor development but also for applying the concepts to real-world situations.

Following an introduction to the field, the text then shifts focus to personal factors that affect performance and psychological development in sport, physical education, and exercise settings. Situational factors that influence behavior, group interaction and processes, and the use of psychological techniques to help people perform more effectively are covered, as well as the roles psychological factors play in health and exercise. The final section deals with topics of psychological development and well-being that are important to both society and sport and exercise psychology, including children’s psychological development through sport participation, aggression in sport, and moral development and good sporting behavior in sport and physical activity contexts. The updated web study guide serves as an important learning tool to support the educational journey. With more than 100 engaging activities, it works directly with the text in guiding students to complete the related activities for each chapter and apply knowledge gained from the text. The study guide activities require students to do the following: • Use actual sport and exercise psychology instruments to assess their skills. • Determine how to respond to real-life scenarios (with short answers or essays). • Review research studies and experiments. • Search the Internet for relevant information. • Apply and test their understanding of principles and concepts of sport and exercise psychology. Many of the study guide activities offer compelling audio and video clips that provide an interactive look at how sport psychology consultants communicate with athletes and coaches to improve athletic experiences. These clips feature esteemed experts from the field discussing course concepts that they have studied and refined during their professional careers. To further emphasize practical application, portfolio activities can be integrated through a full semester, turning course units into a unified whole that builds upon itself for greater understanding of the field.

Motor Learning and Development, Second Edition With Web Resource, provides a foundation for understanding how humans acquire and continue to hone their movement skills throughout the life span. These fundamentals will give students the tools they need to create, apply, and evaluate motor skill programs for learners and clients at all skill and development levels, from elite athletes to those with severe disabilities. The second edition maintains the unique focus of the original, covering the basics of motor learning and development simultaneously. The text has been revised and updated with current research and examples, and it includes the following enhancements: • Three new chapters, Understanding Movement Control, Infant Motor Development, and Devising a Plan, provide more depth on fundamental topics. • A web resource for students includes videos with guiding questions, lab activities for each chapter, and printable versions of the book's sidebars for use as assignments. • Reorganized content in part I allows for deeper understanding of complex topics. • Parts II and III are reorganized to group content by topic rather than by age group, in order to better infuse the two fields of motor learning and motor development. • Updated What Do You Think? and Try This sidebars engage students in applying concepts, and sample answers in the instructor guide help provide feedback on those applications. Motor Learning and Development, Second Edition, combines these two subdisciplines of motor behavior in an accessible and easy-to-follow manner. Part I provides an outline of the fundamental concepts of both motor learning and motor development. Part II explores movement patterns across the life span, from infancy to older adulthood, with a new chapter focusing on infant motor development. Part III examines the changing individual constraints throughout the life span, including physiological, psychological, and sociocultural factors and changes related to age. Finally, part IV prepares students to create and implement developmentally appropriate movement programs, closing with a new chapter, Devising a Plan. Learning aids throughout the book include chapter objectives, glossary terms, and supplemental activities to emphasize the evolution from research to practice. Revised opening vignettes in each chapter demonstrate the breadth of professions that utilize knowledge of and research in motor behavior. The significantly upgraded instructor ancillaries—an instructor guide, test package, and presentation package—are free to course adopters. Motor Learning and Development provides students with the fundamental understanding of movement skills that they need in order to develop, implement, and critically assess motor skill programs.
