Regardless of skill or confidence level, your students will learn how to get children to work together, support each other, and gain competence in sport and fitness skills so that they can stay moving now and throughout their lifetime. The Sport Education model is appropriate for various dance forms and recreational activities such as swimming, weightlifting, and other fitness programs such as aerobic routines and hiking. The text for this groundbreaking Sport Education curricular model has expanded to 12 chapters, is updated throughout, and offers even more practical examples and real-world applications from both elementary and secondary levels: • A new emphasis on using the Sport Education model to help students reach national goals for physical activity, including outside of class time • Review of the findings from more than 50 research studies that examine the efficacies of the Sport Education model • More online teacher resources—including ready-to-use forms, plans, assessments, charts, and handouts A few examples of new resources include a series of team practice cards that teachers and team coaches can use to plan practices, and templates that allow teachers to choose among several game-play performance indicators (techniques and tactics, rules and strategies, fair play, and so on). The resources make it easy for professors to use this text in college methods and curriculum courses. Authors Daryl Siedentop, Peter Hastie, and Hans van der Mars provide a perfect blend of rock-solid theory and practical application for a wealth of games, sports, and fitness activities. Through their Sport Education model, children quickly become involved in all aspects of a sport or activity, learning skills, sportsmanship, and responsibility. The curriculum helps students develop as leaders and as team players. And as they learn to become true players and performers, they become more competent and confident—thus leading to the likelihood that they will continue being active after school, on weekends, and as they grow. This second edition of Complete Guide to Sport Education will help school programs meet national physical activity guidelines and the national physical education standards established by NASPE. It contains everything that future physical education teachers need in order to implement an effective program. With its greater emphasis on activity and fitness, its expanded resources, its relevance and freshness, and its practical approach, Complete Guide to Sport Education, Second Edition, is just what your students need to point children in the direction of healthy, active lifestyles.

Seminar in Physical Education: From Student Teaching to Teaching Students is a concise and complete text that offers a fresh approach to preparing preservice teachers for today's teaching and employment challenges. Because it addresses all 10 of NASPE's National Standards for Beginning Physical Education Teachers, this book is an ideal supplemental text for use during the student teaching semester or other practicum experience, helping preservice teachers reflect on their experiences in the school setting. In addition, Seminar in Physical Education, -helps students build professional portfolios through suggested assignments, -aids in their transition to the professional community, and, -encourages a career of continued professional development. The depth and length of the text are especially appropriate for physical education teacher education (PETE) programs that can't add another 3-credit course to their course requirements but want to teach this content within a methods or pedagogy course, during student teaching, or in a 1- or 2-credit course. Far from an outdated "organization and administration" text, Seminar in Physical Education is a text with real-world applications, grounding students in the realities of today's world of teaching as offered through the expertise and insights of an author team with a combined century of experience in physical activity and PETE instruction. The book includes brief realistic chapter-opening vignettes that can be used as springboards to meaningful discussions and assignments. Chapter-ending discussion questions focus on critical-thinking skills, and each chapter provides professional portfolio-building ideas that will prepare students for their first job hunts and for their careers. A "Further Resources" section helps connect preservice and new teachers to ongoing support. Throughout the book, student learning is reinforced through discussion, writing, and research opportunities. Part I exposes students to the reflective cycle and the processes of identifying and using available resources and constructing a professional development plan. Part II examines the issues of collaboration and communication, addressing advocacy skills, participation in the physical education professional community, access to and use of community resources, and establishment of productive relationships within the school and community. Part III explores curricular implementation, covering liability and risk, resources, technology, professionalism, and portfolio development. Through discussions and assignments, teachers can make connections to technology and communication skills, and the authors make multiple additional tie-ins to the NASPE standards throughout the text. Through Seminar in Physical Education, PETE instructors can send their students into the teaching arena with a better understanding of themselves and the real world of schools, administration, and the need for ongoing professional development.
