Reviews

"This book was created because I saw a need for physical education teachers to consider new ways of teaching. A need to move away from a traditional sports skills approach to teaching physical education. Studies in general have shown that over 50% of students will opt out of taking physical education when given the chance. Further, physical education teachers should realize that their students will never use the physical skills they have learned in class once they leave the school system."
