Kids love to play games. But learning the tactics and skills so that they can more fully enjoy them and do well at them is not easy. And the traditional, highly structured, teacher-directed approach of teaching the tactics and skills separate from the games themselves makes the process quite boring for the kids—who, after all, just want to play the game.

 

Enter Transforming Play: Teaching Tactics and Game Sense. This book uses a games approach that not only works but that kids love. Kids learn the fundamentals of game play through playing the game itself, using its basic tactics, and then learning the skills involved as they attempt to execute the tactics.

 

Transforming Play: Teaching Tactics and Game Sense includes

• an introduction to using generic games to develop key skills and tactics;

• games that you can use to develop kids’ gross motor skills and tactical understanding, which can be transferred to and used in many popular sports;

• sport-specific sections with ideas for games you can use with children in learning school sports;

• questions and coaching points you can use at key moments in teaching tactics and strategies as the kids play the games; and

• support materials for authentic assessment that enhances rather than intrudes on the learning experience.

 

This book provides you with all you need to help your students learn tactics and game sense. You’ll learn the theory behind using generic games and play that will help your students begin to understand the key tactical principles and develop the gross motor skills—running, dodging, catching, throwing, and kicking—that they can use in many popular sports.

 

Transforming Play: Teaching Tactics and Game Sense also offers ideas you can use to help kids transfer the general tactics and gross motor skills they have learned to specific sports, including basketball, soccer, badminton, and netball.

 

Through Transforming Play: Teaching Tactics and Game Sense, you have access to great tools that help you teach students attack and defense games that develop their gross motor skills and tactical understanding of several games. The kids learn the tactics and skills—and they have fun doing so.
