Overcoming the problems of teaching PE in challenging situations

Positive Behavior Management in Physical Activity Settings 3rd EditionIt’s never been more challenging to manage behaviour and motivate students in a physical activity setting.

Physical activity professionals also face the unique challenge of providing instruction to large groups with limited resources and distractions galore.

If not handled correctly, these challenges can quickly add up to chaos, ineffective instruction and frustrated, burnt-out physical activity professionals.

This resource will help you not only overcome those and other discipline challenges, but also use tried-and-tested, positive techniques to develop appropriate and responsible behaviours and good character among all learners.

This new edition incorporates principles, methods and instructional practices from psychology, special education, pedagogy, recreation, athletics and coaching.

It shows teachers, coaches and recreation leaders how to apply the principles that have proved effective in schools, youth sport programmes and recreation facilities.
