Learn how to get kids more involved in their physical education classes—and how to get them to stay active beyond high school! In It’s Not Just Gym Anymore, national high school physical education teacher of the year Bane McCracken shows you how to develop a program that prepares students to be physically active after they graduate.

Just as kids wonder how they’ll use certain academic skills later in life, they may also question how physical education activities, such as learning to play volleyball, will help them after they leave school. The approach in this book doesn’t just help students recognize and learn physical skills and understand why physical activity and fitness are important. It also keeps them motivated by showing them that they don’t have to be athletic to be fit and by presenting more diverse activities that they can continue to enjoy as adults.

Helping students make the transition from active students to active adults is the element that’s missing from too many traditional physical education programs, but it’s at the heart of the revolution that’s being touted as the “new PE”—programs that are results-oriented and valued as relevant to the needs of today’s society.

Physical education programs can be more than just "gym class." This book shows new and experienced physical education teachers how their programs can become a valued part of the school curriculum and achieve the ultimate goal of preparing students for a lifetime of activity and good health.
