Do you want to help your students become more resilient and patient, acquire new skills and sharpen their problem-solving abilities while feeling competent and good about themselves? If you do, then "Teaching Lifetime Outdoor Pursuits" is the ideal tool for you. The 12 topics included in this new book represent the outdoor pursuits that show the greatest growth in traditional PE programmes. With each pursuit, students can challenge themselves and spend time outside of the traditional classroom setting while sharing an adventure with their teachers that can create a profoundly different student - teacher relationship.
Editors Jeff Steffen and Jim Stiehl are widely known physical educators with extensive experience in outdoor education teaching and teacher training. They have gathered together some of the USA's foremost experts in specific outdoor pursuits, such as bouldering, caving, rock climbing and orienteering to craft a book designed for physical education teachers who either have outdoor programmes or who want to use outdoor activities in their traditional PE programmes.
