Following the winning formula of Getting the Buggers to Behave, this innovative guide provides teachers with a range of practical strategies that can be used to motivate pupils of all ages. Lorraine Cale and Jo Harris explore the kind of things that turn young people on and off in their PE lessons and then focus on ways of motivating young people in different aspects of the PE curriculum, such as athletics, gymnastics, team games, etc. They suggest how to involve the whole school in sporting activities and then include advice on how to encourage students to be healthy more generally, looking at school dinners and how to involve parents. Brimming with useful tips and inspirational advice on every aspect of PE teaching, this book will prove essential reading for PE teachers everywhere.
