Most new teachers, coaches, and recreation leaders who leave the profession do so because of behavior issues. Even when you have the subject knowledge and leadership skills you need, if participants’ problem behaviors are not handled effectively, learning, performance, and enjoyment will suffer. Positive Behavior Management in Physical Activity Settings, Second Edition, will help you manage your participants’ behavior, whether you’re a new or veteran teacher, coach, or recreation leader. This text, in an updated and expanded edition, will help you motivate your participants and create a physical activity environment that is conductive to learning and performance. In addition, the book provides methods for teaching participants to take personal and social responsibility for themselves, which serve to empower rather than control them.
Positive Behavior Management in Physical Activity Settings, Second Edition, provides you with ideas that you can apply to your setting and needs. Its ready-to-go reproducibles and checklists are time savers as they help you immediately implement sound strategies. With their years of experience, the authors understand the challenges you face, and they guide you in developing your own approach to promoting responsible and positive behavior in your setting.
