Personal, social and moral development through physical education and sport is a relatively under-researched area. Most teaching concentrates on the performance aspect of physical education, while the National Curriculum requires teachers to address a number of 'non-physical' outcomes such as learning rules, teamwork, cooperation and competition.

This timely book redresses that balance by providing classroom practitioners and student teachers with practical advice, and tried-and-tested suggestions for activities and strategies to help them use physical education as an effective vehicle for the all-round personal development of the individual.

Tony Laker pays particular attention to:

* curriculum development, planning units of work and lesson planning

* considering different types of assessment, and suggestions on which forms are most appropriate for measuring programme effectiveness and the personal development of pupils

* the role of the reflective practitioner and a framework within which teachers can reflect on their practice.

Through using an extensive range of diagrams, photos and bulleted lists, Laker makes this guide a concise and accessible read, giving practitioners the opportunity to extend and develop their abilities in teaching this subject.
