Packed with concise yet thorough notes, GCSE Physical Education: A Revision Guide is the only book that GCSE students and teachers will ever need for exam success. The book is organised into four parts. Part I, “The Human Body,” outlines the basic structure of the human body and its key systems as well as the effect of exercise on those systems. Part II, “Training and Fitness,” covers the importance of fitness, training’s effect on fitness, and common injuries—their causes and how to treat them. Part III, “Coaching and Performance,” shows how athletes learn skills and how this knowledge can be applied to teaching. Part IV, “Sport in Society,” examines the effect society has on sport. The text explores the application of rules, governing organisations, finance and facilities, drug use, politics, race and gender.
Acting as a classroom resource and providing novel ways to teach the subject, as well as being an ongoing course guide, homework and revision aid, GCSE Physical Education: A Revision Guide is an invaluable tool for helping students and teachers alike to successfully complete the GCSE syllabus.
