Reviews

Praise for previous editions: 

'A wealth of advice on generic aspects of teaching and learning in Physical Education …The accessibility of the text, and constant reference to ways of adapting suggestions to different situations, make this book particularly "user-friendly" and suitable for student-teachers in diverse settings' – European Physical Education Review 

‘Essential reading for teachers who pride themselves on being "critically reflective"' – Times Educational Supplement
