Book Description

No single instructional method can meet all of the student learning needs expressed in the SHAPE America National Standards for Physical Education. This new edition provides pedagogical knowledge and resources that support physical education teachers’ selection and use of instructional models and gives physical educators a plan for incorporating these models into their teaching.

Presented in two sections, Instructional Models for Physical Education 4E first presents the rationale, pedagogical knowledge, and selection processes for Model-Based Instruction (MBI). MBI is the commitment to use one instructional plan throughout a unit of instruction. The second section provides pedagogical knowledge for the selection, implementation and assessment of instructional models used in P–12 physical education.

This edition has been updated to be in alignment with the SHAPE America National Standards for Physical Education. It includes new sections on differentiated instruction and practical applications. A companion website contains additional examples and information for each model.

The book includes everything the reader needs for planning, implementing, and assessing when teaching with instructional models. It helps readers incorporate research-based practices in their lessons, adapt activities, and teach to standards. This text can be used as the stand-alone text for courses on physical education teaching methods at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
