The popular Interdisciplinary Teaching Through Physical Educationis back and better than ever. This new edition guides you in integrating the content of language arts, math, science, social studies, and the arts (music, theater arts, and visual arts) with the content of physical education through active learning experiences. This book has the following features:
-It provides 24 learning experiences in the five academic areas, 193 additional ideas for developing those learning experiences, and 37 new, ongoing strategies for teaching physical education through cross-curricular methods.
-It is revised and expanded, offering you more teaching tools to supplement, support, and enhance your teaching.
-It delivers new practical ideas and activities for classroom use, based on current theory and best practices.
In part I, you'll learn about the theoretical need for and benefits of interdisciplinary teaching and learning. The authors identify models for planning and implementing interdisciplinary experiences and provide ideas for getting started, building a support network, and assessing learning.
In part II, the authors describe sample learning experiences in each of the five academic disciplines and offer ideas for developing additional learning experiences. They also present suggested scope and sequence of concepts for each grade level and describe the concepts and skills that are appropriate for primary- and intermediate-grade students.
Interdisciplinary Elementary Physical Educationwill give your students a wealth of knowledge while they're being active. They'll have fun while they conjugate, calculate, investigate, explore, dance—and move across the curriculum.
