Gary Stidder, Gerald Griggs

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNChapter

Abstract

Gary Stidder and Gerald Griggs examine the teaching of health-related exercise within the revised National Curriculum for Physical Education, which now commands a standalone place within the range and content of activities under the heading ‘Exercising safely and effectively’. They invite readers to rip up the proverbial rule book and consider the teaching of alternative physical activities in order to appeal to greater numbers of pupils.
