Using Physical Activity and Sport to Teach Personal and Social Responsibility shows you how to implement a character education program in your school or community organization. Authors Watson and Clocksin offer an ideal companion text to Don Hellison's classic Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility Through Physical Activity. In this text, Watson and Clocksin provide the practical tools for applying Hellison’s Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility (TPSR) model to sport and fitness activities. You’ll find samples of units, lessons, and assessments incorporating the TPSR model in teaching basketball, golf, soccer, volleyball, team handball, tennis, yoga, fitness, and adventure education. An excellent text for the novice teacher, Using Physical Activity and Sport to Teach Personal and Social Responsibility also offers information and techniques on facilitating youth development in a variety of movement settings and with diverse populations. This text begins with an introduction to the TPSR model that prepares you for practical applications to follow. Part I of the text presents the history and evolution of the TPSR model. It also discusses how TPSR meets current National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) standards for physical education instruction. Next you’ll find an examination of current research on motivating students in a physical activity context, creating positive learning climates, and facilitating student-centered learning. Part I concludes with a look at current literature demonstrating the effect of the TPSR model in the sport and physical activity setting. Part II centers on methods for teaching life skills and values through nine sports and physical activities. Each of the nine chapters is organized using the TPSR lesson plan format (awareness talk, lesson focus, group meeting, and reflection) in connection to each developmental stage (1, 2, and 3). It includes a summary and recommendations for additional readings. For each sport or physical activity, you’ll find suggested activities for teaching sport skills and TPSR skills in tandem, examples of guided questions, and information on skill assessments. Each chapter includes easy-to-reference tables examining possible instructional strategies to use (such as command, reciprocal, inclusion, and self-check), teaching considerations for each strategy, and how each strategy can guide your students in accomplishing TPSR goals at their developmental level. Part III of this resource includes a chapter featuring profiles of teachers and youth workers who are using the TPSR model effectively. The book concludes with a look at how teaching personal and social responsibility through sport can support the creation of young leaders in school and community settings. Using Physical Activity and Sport to Teach Personal and Social Responsibility offers undergraduates, teachers, and youth workers a bridge to connect Hellison’s TPSR model to their own practices. More than a text on physical education or sport instruction, this book can help you turn sport and physical activity into opportunities to create deeper, more positive connections with students and nuture their personal and social growth.

Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility Through Physical Activity, now entering its third edition, attests to author Don Hellison’s ability to shape and develop character and responsibility in children. Perhaps the success of Hellison’s book can be attributed to his status not only as a highly respected scholar-activist but as a teacher who worked in the trenches with inner-city kids. Kids in any situation will benefit from the thoroughly updated material in this edition, which presents practical, proven, easy-to-implement ideas for teaching personal and social responsibility (TPSR) in school, after school, and in alternative settings. It also supplies direction in teaching affective and social moral goals, an in-depth look into teaching character development and values, and a method for helping students develop personal and social responsibility. Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility Through Physical Activity offers much new material: • Strategies for alternative schools, afterschool programs, and the emerging youth development movement • Vignettes sprinkled throughout the chapters, written by TPSR instructors in various settings • Several chapters that have been completely overhauled • An expanded assessment chapter to help readers evaluate the impact of TPSR on their kids and apply the strategies • One new chapter on combining responsibility-based youth development with teacher preparation in physical education In addition, the book features “Kid Quotes” to help readers understand how kids respond to the TPSR approach, as well as forms and charts to help readers put the ideas and strategies to use. The result is a field-tested book that is the accepted curricular model in the field—and a resource that will enable teachers to help their students grow into solid citizens both personally and socially.

Beyond the Boundaries of Physical Education

This book sets out to celebrate physical education and sport, and by doing so, encourage the educational establishment to embrace the subject area as a vehicle for the complete development of the individual. In addition, it shows that the benefits of physical activity far outweigh the shallow claims of populous magazines - there are benefits for the individual, the community and for society as a whole. Laker contends that the importance of physical education and sport in many areas of social life has been overlooked at best, and misused at worst. Physical activity has a vast contribution to make, not only as a topic of small talk on a Monday morning, but also to the personal and social development of individuals and possibly to the well-being of the global community as a whole. This book explores the land 'beyond the boundaries of the game.'

The first Positive Youth Development title to focus on the role of sport, this book brings together high profile contributors from diverse disciplines to critically examine the ways in which sport can be and has been used to promote youth development. Young people are too frequently looked upon as problems waiting to be solved. From the perspective of Positive Youth Development (PYD), young people are understood to embody potential, awaiting development. Involvement with sport provides a developmental context that has been associated with PYD, but negative outcomes can also arise from sport participation and school PE. Sport itself does not lead to PYD; rather, it is the manner in which sport is structured and delivered to children that influences their development. Positive Youth Development Through Sport fills a void in the literature by bringing together experts from diverse disciplines to critically examine the ways in which sport can be and has been used to promote youth development.

Students in a regular physical education program typically learn skills through observation and practice. Teachers and specialists working with students who are sensory impaired with multiple disabilities face unique challenges. Because such students make up a small percentage of the population, physical education texts on adaptation, instructional strategies and activities for groups give only minimal information about working with them. This new book explores the issues of the physical education curricula for sensory handicapped children. Typically, these curricula are based on old techniques that have been used since time immemorial. Rather than examine how teachers utilise obsolete curricula, this important book examines how they effect the students.

The influence of professional, adult sport on youth sport is now a global concern. Children are involved in high-stakes competitive sport at national and international levels at an increasingly young age. In addition, the use of sport as a medium for positive youth development by governments and within the community has fuelled ambitious targets for young people’s participation in sport at all levels. In this important study of ethical issues in and around youth sport, leading international experts argue for the development of strong ethical codes for the conduct of youth sport and for effective policy and pedagogical applications to ensure that the positive benefits of sport are optimized and the negative aspects diminished. At the heart of the discussion are the prevailing standards and expectations of youth sport in developed societies, typically consisting of the development of motor competence, the development of a safe and healthy lifestyle and competitive style, and the development of a positive self-image and good relationship skills. The book examines the recommendations emerging from the ‘Panathlon Declaration’ and the debates that have followed, and covers a wide range of key ethical issues, including: emotional and physical abuse aggression and violence doping and cheating values and norms teaching and coaching integrity management. Ethics in Youth Sport is focused on the application of ethical policy and pedagogies and is grounded in practice. It assumes no prior ethical training on the part of the reader and is essential reading for all students, researchers, policy makers and professionals working with children and young people in sport across school, community and professional settings.
