Health and Physical Education : Preparing Educators for the Future
Health and Physical Education empowers the health and physical education teachers of tomorrow to engage students across a wide range of learning ages. It highlights the importance of physical skills development within the broader structure of child and adolescent maturity. This well-structured and engaging text considers the role of health and physical education within the wider educational experience, and provides a comprehensive overview of the skills and theory required to teach health and physical education in Australian schools. Health and Physical Education is based on current research literature and is enhanced by a range of valuable teaching resources - including further reading, end-of-chapter questions and case studies - intended to extend and develop students' learning. It is accompanied by an extensive companion website, http://www.cambridge.edu.au/academic/hpe.
