Assessment in adapted physical education is not a simple task. Variables in assessment instruments and in the administration and interpretation of tests can sometimes generate more questions than answers.
That’s why special education and adapted physical activity teachers have come to rely on Developmental and Adapted Physical Activity Assessment.
Now in its second edition, this is the one of the only textbooks that focuses solely on assessment, providing valuable and in-depth clarity, guidance, and understanding in the principles and practical applications of assessment.
As a physical educator (or student preparing to become one), you need to know more than the skills, techniques, and tactics of the sports and activities you teach. You need to understand, among other things, how to create task progressions, how to organize and adapt those tasks, and how to detect and correct student errors. Effective Physical Education Content and Instruction will help you learn how to do just that.
This text presents the new National Standards for K-12 Physical Education. It includes new, measurable grade-level outcomes for elementary, middle, and high school students. All outcomes are written to align with the standards and with the intent of fostering lifelong physical activity.
The Essentials of Teaching Health Education presents a skills-based approach to teaching K-12 health education—one that will prepare your students for success in school and beyond. You’ll learn practical approaches to putting the contents in action and rely on an array of teaching and assessment strategies.
The Essentials of Teaching Physical Education helps future teachers prepare to use the teaching for learning approach to K-12 physical education. In line with SHAPE America Standards and Grade-Level Outcomes, this text will aid teachers in acquiring the skills and knowledge they need in order to develop physically literate students.
Health and Physical Education for Elementary Classroom Teachers will help teachers who might not have specialist training to deliver innovative health education and physical education lessons and concepts into their classrooms. It covers both subjects in one handy resource and is aligned with national health education, physical education, and state-specific academic standards.
Lesson Planning for Elementary Physical Education offers expert guidance in implementing lessons and curricula that are aligned with SHAPE America’s National Standards and Grade-Level Outcomes. The plans are flexible, reflect best practices, and foster the achievement of physical literacy.

Each skill is animated to aid learning, and a web resource offers multiple materials to assist in your teaching.
