Front Cover
Allyn and Bacon, 2000 - Education - 388 pages

This text introduces Models-Based Instruction for physical education. It presents effective teaching models such as Cooperative Learning, Personalized Systems of Instruction (PSI), and Direct Instruction clearly and articulately. It also covers models that have been specifically developed for teaching PE, such as Sport Education and Tactical Games. This book brings together in one text a number of teaching models that have appeared in isolated books and journals. By presenting a Models-Based perspective, Instructional Models for Physical Education will help PE teachers learn, select, and practice these comprehensive patterns of teaching.

An instructional model is a unique plan of action, designed to facilitate certain learning outcomes for students. Each model establishes its own pattern of decision making, classroom operations, and responsibilities for the teacher and students. After each model is explained, it is followed with examples of lesson plans and suggestions for adapting the model to various teaching contexts with appropriate learning activities.
