This book focuses on the requirements of student PE teachers in relation to teaching skills and issues covered in PGCE and initial teacher education courses.
The new edition of this popular textbook draws together background information about teaching and about PE, basic teaching skills specifically related to physical education and broader knowledge and understanding of issues in the wider context of PE. The book is organized so that each chapter contains text and underpinning theory interspersed with activities that student teachers are asked to undertake either alone, with another student teacher, or with a tutor. This is not a book of teaching tips but promotes critical thinking and reflection to enable student PE teachers to develop into reflective practitioners.
Learning to Teach Physical Education in the Secondary School is an essential resource for any student teacher undertaking PGCE or school-based initial teacher education to become a teacher of PE in secondary schools.
