TESTIMONIALS

The Ultimate Parent Guide to Child & Adolescent Physical Activity:

From preschool through high school, good points are raised to guide and understand what’s most beneficial to keep your kids physically/emotionally healthy, from a phys ed professional who’s seen things firsthand working with kids throughout his career. —BostonFrankG

Great, practical suggestions. I really like the graphics and “option outlines”. Well worth the price. —Carol Boncelet

Lesson Plans for the Elementary Physical Education Teacher: A Developmental Movement Education and Skill-Themes Framework

“Dr. Gosset’s Movement Education and Skills Themes framework for teaching physical education, especially at the elementary level, is the most appropriate way physical education should be taught. It involves teaching through progressions and focusing on skills versus focusing on games and competition. Skills themes help the physical educator differentiate lessons better in addition to achieving the national standards. With this approach, students are able to achieve a higher level of success and with this success comes a greater percentage of students wanting to remain physically active throughout their life.” —Amy Monsegur, Physical Education Teacher, NYC Department of Education
