ISE Children Moving: A Reflective Approach to Teaching Physical Education Summary

ISE Children Moving: A Reflective Approach to Teaching Physical Education by George Graham

Children Moving, introduces a process of teaching that provides a background for adapting, adjusting, and modifying lessons so they are interesting and worthwhile for all children - from the lowest to the highest skill and fitness levels. The ultimate goal is to guide youngsters in the process of becoming physically active for a lifetime. Rather than simply describing games and activities, Children Moving emphasizes the importance of children learning to move by focusing on developmentally appropriate skill themes that are used in virtually all sports and physical activities. The intended result is children becoming skillful movers and eager participants in physical activity.
