Making sense of play

Children love to play games, but learning the tactics and skills so that they can more fully enjoy and do well at them is not always easy.

Additionally, the traditional, highly structured, teacher-directed approach of teaching the tactics and skills separate from the games themselves, makes the process quite boring for the children. After all, they just want to get on with playing the game.

Transforming Play: Teaching Tactics and Game Sense is a book that uses a games approach that not only works, but that children love.

This book provides you with all you need to help your students learn tactics and game sense. You’ll learn the theory behind using generic games and play that will help your students begin to understand the key tactical principles and develop the gross motor skills – running, dodging, catching, throwing and kicking – that they can use in many popular sports.
