Introducing motor behaviour

One of the many strengths of Fundamentals of Motor Behavior is its focus on the real-world application of the information presented. The text takes concepts taught in advanced motor behaviour courses and shows how they are relevant to everyday living. With this approach, even students who know nothing about the subject will feel comfortable learning new terms and material. The book first defines motor behaviour and explains how students can apply it to pursue various academic and professional career paths. It then discusses the concepts and principles of motor behaviour that students will need in order to pursue a career in the field.

PE for all

Primary school teachers of Physical Education are facing growing demands for accountability while being asked to address the needs of increasingly diverse classes of students. Unfortunately, the one-size-fits-all approach does not allow teachers to adequately address those needs, leaving many frustrated and overworked as they try to make do with a curriculum that doesn’t really work. Enter Everyone Can!: Skill Development and Assessment in Elementary Physical Education. This book and Web site package offers a wealth of information that addresses the needs of all students.
