If you struggle with the transition from teaching your students skills to teaching your students how to use those skills in a game, this book is for you. You'll learn a tactical approach that lets your students experience the excitement of actual play before they begin practicing specific skills. This approach allows students to first develop an overall sense of the sport, then take a problem-solving approach to mastering skills. Then, when they understand why each skill is important, students can apply the skills effectively during game play. Teaching Sport Concepts and Skills: A Tactical Games Approach fully explains the principles of tactical teaching and provides a wealth of practical material for teaching and assessment. Each of the 169 lesson plans includes a tactical problem, a lesson focus, objectives, appropriate games, problem-solving questions, and practice tasks. You'll also find 118 diagrams to help you visualize lesson organizations, as well as a chapter on assessing game performance and implementing the tactical approach.
