Teaching Children Gymnastics
This third edition of Teaching Children Gymnastics will help you tailor a gymnastics program to your teaching situation while combining the best facets of developmental skills, health-related fitness, and conceptual learning based on process characteristics of body, space, effort, and relationships. Internationally renowned author and educator Peter Werner and coauthors Lori Williams and Tina Hall guide you through the process of teaching gymnastics skills and then linking those skills into sequences.
Having conducted workshops at all levels, the three authors combine decades worth of gymnastics knowledge and teaching experience. In this book, they offer updated and new material, including
a chapter on designing gymnastics sequences;
sections on behavior management, inclusion, and advocacy;
information on scope and sequence for grades K to 5;
information based on revised national standards, assessment, and designing of gymnastics sequences; and
additional learning experiences, plus ideas for creating more learning experiences.
You will find real-life scenarios that will help you apply the material, and you will learn how to create a positive learning environment for your students. Chapter objectives, summaries, and reflection questions enhance the learning experience
