The new statutory requirements for Physical Education (PE) in schools emphasise the importance of equity and inclusion and the responsibilities of teachers to provide programmes of study that incorporate pupils of both genders, all social backgrounds and ethnic groups, and those with special educational needs and disabilities. Equity and Inclusion in PE examines the new National Curriculum for PE (NCPE 2000) and looks at the range of social inclusion challenges faced by PE teachers today. The book is structured around the key issues of social class, race and ethnicity, gender, sexuality, special needs, disability, and ability. These issues are discussed in relation to the principles of equity, equality of opportunity, pedagogy, differentiation, curriculum planning and cultural awareness. This text provides valuable advice for established professionals, newly qualified teachers, and trainees about how to meet equity and inclusion requirements. Examples of good practice are provided as well as ideas for how to implement an inclusive PE curriculum within the context of school lessons.

With contributions from many of the world’s leading equity specialists, it will be invaluable reading for all students, scholars and professionals working in PE, youth sport, health, sports development, gender studies and mainstream education programmes.

Philosophy is a crucial, yet often overlooked, part of kinesiology students' education. Practical Philosophy of Sport and Physical Activity, Second Edition,provides students with a thorough, clear, and practical introduction to the philosophy of physical activity and sport, and in doing so, prepares them for the ethical questions they will face as professionals.

Practical Philosophy of Sport and Physical Activity, Second Edition,helps students examine key moral questions in sport. Its approach to the content helps students follow and dissect ethical arguments, think through philosophic issues, and apply theory to practice. Each chapter includes objectives, philosophical exercises, reviews, and study questions to reinforce understanding. Kretchmar's engaging writing style accentuates important topics of discussion, focusing the readers' attention on the philosophy behind the practice or strategy. As a result, students develop their philosophical skills, refine their personal philosophy concerning physical activity and sport, and learn that philosophy can be clear, practical, and holistic, rather than obscure, overly theoretical, and dualistic. The text is arranged in four parts. Part Iintroduces students to the nature and methods of philosophy. Part IIfocuses on issues relating to the nature of the athlete or client and includes analyses of dualism, scientific materialism, and holism. Part IIIdelves into kinesiology issues, including the nature of play, games, and competition, and Part IVprovides expanded material on ethics, value choices, and active lifestyles. This text provides students with the practical tools and specific techniques they need to think ethically and systematically, as they become skilled practitioners in the field of physical activity and sport. In doing so, it demystifies philosophy and reveals it as the guiding element in our understanding of, and approach to, activity, games, and competitions.

The discipline area of physical education has historically struggled for legitimacy, sometimes being seen as a non-serious pursuit in educational terms compared to other subjects within the school curriculum. This book represents the first attempt in nearly thirty years to offer a coherent philosophical defence and conceptualisation of physical education and sport as subjects of educational value, and to provide a philosophically sound justification for their inclusion in the curriculum. The book argues that rather than relegating the body to “un-thinking” learning, a person’s essential being is not confined to their rationality but involves an embodied dimension. It traces the changing conceptions of the body, in philosophy and theology, that have influenced our understanding of physical education and sport, and investigates the important role that embodiment and movement play in learning about, through and in physical education. Physical education is defended as a vital and necessary part of education because the whole person goes to school, not just the mind, but the thinking, feeling and acting facets of a person. It is argued that physical education has the potential to provide a multitude of experiences and opportunities for students to become aware of their embodiment, explore alternative modes of awareness and to develop insights into and new modes of being not available elsewhere in the curriculum, and to influence moral character through the support of a moral community that is committed to that practice. Representing a sophisticated and spirited defence of the educational significance and philosophical value of physical education and sport, this book will be fascinating reading for any advanced student or researcher with an interest in physical education, the philosophy of sport or the philosophy of education.
