Personal, social and moral development through physical education and sport is a relatively under-researched area. Most teaching concentrates on the performance aspect of physical education, while the National Curriculum requires teachers to address a number of 'non-physical' outcomes such as learning rules, teamwork, cooperation and competition. This timely book redresses that balance by providing classroom practitioners and student teachers with practical advice, and tried-and-tested suggestions for activities and strategies to help them use physical education as an effective vehicle for the all-round personal development of the individual. Tony Laker pays particular attention to: * curriculum development, planning units of work and lesson planning * considering different types of assessment, and suggestions on which forms are most appropriate for measuring programme effectiveness and the personal development of pupils * the role of the reflective practitioner and a framework within which teachers can reflect on their practice. Through using an extensive range of diagrams, photos and bulleted lists, Laker makes this guide a concise and accessible read, giving practitioners the opportunity to extend and develop their abilities in teaching this subject.

Education and Democracy

he main premises of this book are that democracy is a moral rather than merely a political system; that it provides a set of moral principles which must be adhered to in all social planning; and that much current social policy worldwide ignores those moral imperatives and thus places democracy itself at risk. The author sets out to clarify the principles which are central to any concept of democracy, and which must be reflected in all social institutions within a democratic society. He explores the significance, for the democratic health of a society, of the way in which knowledge is conceived, especially within educational planning. In the light of both these considerations, he identifies the essential features of a genuinely democratic system of education, and evaluates current policies for education.

This book sets out to celebrate physical education and sport, and by doing so, encourage the educational establishment to embrace the subject area as a vehicle for the complete development of the individual. In addition, it shows that the benefits of physical activity far outweigh the shallow claims of populous magazines - there are benefits for the individual, the community and for society as a whole. Laker contends that the importance of physical education and sport in many areas of social life has been overlooked at best, and misused at worst. Physical activity has a vast contribution to make, not only as a topic of small talk on a Monday morning, but also to the personal and social development of individuals and possibly to the well-being of the global community as a whole. This book explores the land 'beyond the boundaries of the game.'

First published in 1990, the Handbook of Educational Ideas and Practices was written for practitioners and students in the field of education and its related services and was designed to appeal to educationists no matter what their nationality. Focusing mainly on compulsory schooling, it provides summaries of the thinking, research findings, and innovatory practices current at the time. However, the book is also careful to present a complete picture of education and therefore includes a separate section for education beyond school which covers pre-school level, post-secondary level, and adult and continuing education. There are also other chapters dealing with aspects of organization, curriculum, and teaching in various forms of tertiary education. Indeed, each topic has been discussed by an acknowledged expert writing in sufficient detail in order to resist trivialization.

Teachers are expected to take responsibility for children's moral development, particularly in the primary years, but how best to go about approaching the issues? In this book, the author explores a classroom approach that uses both drama and narrative stories to explore moral issues: drama gives children an opportunity to work through moral problems, make decisions and take up moral positions; stories offer a resource for moral education whereby children can learn through the 'experiences' of those in the story. Through providing a number of case studies, the author shows how this may be done by practitioners in the lassroom.
