Hard-to-Teach Biology Concepts provides an Instructional Planning Framework that helps you understand students' learning needs, incorporate appropriate teaching strategies, and interpret the framework and teaching tools through the lens of NGSS.
The book begins by exploring the nature and purpose of physical education and examining the historical development of initial teacher training. It examines recent changes in training, policy and curriculum, and offers an overview of the various ways of becoming a PE teacher, including the Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) and school and employment based routes.
The Essentials of Teaching Physical Education is the definitive guide for future K-12 physical educators, as well as current teachers and administrators, and is an appropriate resource for learning to teach at both the elementary and the secondary levels.
As a physical education teacher, you are ideally positioned to help students become physically literate individuals--that is, to gain the knowledge, skills, and confidence they need to enjoy a lifetime of healthful physical activity.
Focused on physical literacy and measurable outcomes, empowering physical educators to help students meet the Common Core standards, and coming from a recently renamed but longstanding organization intent on shaping a standard of excellence in physical education, National Standards & Grade-Level Outcomes for K-12 Physical Education is all that and much more.
Combining a grounded, modern rationale for teaching with highly practical training approaches, the book offers clear, straightforward advice on effective practice which will develop students' physical literacy, knowledge and inter-personal skills.
