Promoting Active Lifestyles in Schools is ideal for those who want to promote healthy, active lifestyles in schools-not just during physical education classes, but throughout the school day. This book presents a holistic perspective on physical activity, exposing teachers to a broad spectrum of curricular and noncurricular opportunities to enhance their pupils' engagement with physical activity, as well as the tools and resources to do it.
Promoting Active Lifestyles in Schools offers research-informed, evidence-based practices (built on health-related studies from around the world) that will help teachers broaden their physical activity promotion in school-based environments. Through this text, teachers will receive the following:
Tried-and-true practical learning activities that help pupils of all ages lead healthy, active lifestyles
Clear explanations of the current thinking and evidence underpinning the practical ideas and activities, helping teachers fully grasp the content and depth of the material
Developmentally appropriate procedures to monitor children's health, activity and fitness in school, both as individuals and within a cohort (thus helping teachers quantify progress made)
Best practices, illustrated through a diverse range of case studies, to help teachers connect with the information and help their pupils apply it in real life
