Book Description

This book focuses on health within physical education (PE) and specifically on PE pedagogies for health. It gives practitioners and students the knowledge, understanding, skills and confidence to employ effective health pedagogies and practices in their work, and to promote healthy, active lifestyles within their PE curricula.

Drawing on cutting-edge research, the book highlights key pedagogical issues and debates concerning the delivery of health in PE, and their implications for practice, such as in policy and curriculum development. It explores recent recommendations and developments in PE pedagogies for health which have been shown to enhance, or have the potential to enhance, practice in the area, as well as future opportunities for doing so. It provides practical tools that bridge the gap between research and application, including learning activities and questions that encourage the reader to reflect on their own professional practice and identify actions for developing their own pedagogy, practice and curricula in the area.

This is essential reading for all PE teachers, coaches working with children or young people, teacher and coach educators, and trainee teachers and coaches.
