This collection of studies addresses contemporary issues and problems in the physical education curriculum. While each of the chapters illustrates the diverse range of practical curriculum issues currently facing physical education, the continuities between them also suggest a certain commonality of experience in Britain, North America and Au tralia. In each it is difficult not to detect at least some rumblings of the various crises - environmental, political, economic, social - that are increasingly impacting on everyday lives in the present and shaping thoughts and plans for the future. The editors stress that physical education is a part of social life and is therefore a key site for the production and legitimation of important cultural mores, values and symbols.

Sociocultural Issues in Physical Education: Case Studies for Teachers is useful to a wide range of individuals interested in increasing their sociocultural awareness and knowledge in order to consider how students’ experiences are shaped in and through physical education classes. This book may be especially useful to teacher candidates and as a professional development tool. What happens in physical activity learning spaces is of great significance to the learners that occupy those spaces. Broadly speaking, one cannot deny that education is rife with error, nor can one ignore the presence of global-level issues in physical education. Using a case study approach, this book addresses social and cultural issues that can and do arise in physical education. This book offers a tool for studying and better understanding how social and cultural issues impact student learning in physical education. Chapter authors point toward possibilities for better understanding sociocultural issues in physical education settings.

An essential component of good practice in physical education is ensuring inclusivity for all pupils, regardless of need, ability or background. Now in a fully revised and updated new edition, Equity and Inclusion in Physical Education fully explores the theoretical and practical issues faced by physical education teachers today. The book amalgamates areas of critical debate within the world of physical education and is structured around the key topics of ability, special educational needs, gender, sexuality, social class, race and ethnicity. These issues are discussed in relation to principles of equity, equality of opportunity, pedagogy, differentiation, curriculum planning and cultural awareness. Other chapters explore contemporary themes such as healthism and obesity and values in physical education and policy, whilst a chapter new to this edition demonstrates the importance of reflexivity and critical self-reflection in good inclusive practice. As well as being a perfect introductory text for any course on inclusion or inclusive practice in physical education, the book offers invaluable, practical advice for established professionals, newly qualified teachers and trainees about how to meet equity and inclusion requirements.

This book presents a breakthrough achievement-based curriculum (ABC) model designed to guide physical educators step-by-step through the process of translating curriculum theory into functional practice. The ABC approach provides curriculum designers with a systematic decision-making process for developing a curriculum that addresses unique and diverse needs. And it allows designers to incorporate national, state, and local content and assessment standards in their curricula. The book takes teachers through every phase of curriculum design: foundational understanding of design, development, implementation, and evaluation. Further, it shows teachers how to document that their curriculum is working—a valuable asset in an era of budget cuts. Other outstanding features include: Opening Scenario, Expected Outcomes, and Making It Work special elements in each chapter to help future teachers understand how to apply the book’s content in school settings; instruction on implementing the curriculum and sharing it with others; strategies for planning, implementing, and evaluating a curriculum and establishing credibility for it; emphasis on student achievement as an indicator of a quality physical education program; forms and worksheets (completed examples and blanks) that give future teachers a hands-on approach to developing, assessing, and revising a curriculum.
