Abstract

Innovative Approaches to Teaching and Learning in Physical Education challenges the traditional ‘one size fits all’ approach to PE. It explores a range of innovative, alternative activities that teachers can use to develop the physical literacy of their pupils from ages 7 to 18, encouraging lifelong engagement in physical activity by making PE more inclusive, personalised and enjoyable. Drawing on the latest empirical research and current classroom experience, the first section of the book explores important new concepts in the teaching and learning of PE, arguing for important changes in curriculum design, content, method and pedagogy. The second section of the book offers practical guidance, tips, descriptions and plans across a range of alternative activities, from cheerleading and street dance to skateboarding and the Nintendo Wii. An emphasis is placed throughout on the personal, social, moral and cultural gains that young people can make by engaging in physical activity of all kinds, with the book aiming to open up exciting new possibilities for PE teachers tailored to their school’s location and pupil population. Innovative Approaches to Teaching and Learning in Physical Education is an essential complement to any physical education course, and a useful reference for all PE teachers and any coach working with young people.
