New publication on Equity and Inclusion in Physical Education and Sport
Published 20 August 2012
Dr Gary Stidder and Sid Hayes, principal lecturers at the School of Sport and Service Management have co-edited a second edition of their book ‘Equity and Inclusion in Physical Education and Sport'.
The second edition of the book will be published at the end of August by Routledge.
The book explores the theoretical and practical issues faced by physical education teachers today.
The book amalgamates areas of critical debate within the world of physical education and is structured around the key topics of ability, special educational needs, gender, sexuality, social class, race and ethnicity.
These issues are discussed in relation to principles of equity, equality of opportunity, pedagogy, differentiation, curriculum planning and cultural awareness.
Other chapters explore contemporary themes such as healthism and obesity and values in physical education and policy, whilst a chapter new to this edition demonstrates the importance of reflexivity and critical self-reflection in good inclusive practice.
As well as being a perfect introductory text for any course on inclusion or inclusive practice in physical education, the book offers invaluable, practical advice for established professionals, newly qualified teachers and trainees about how to meet equity and inclusion requirements.
Examples of good practice are included throughout, as well as guidance on how to implement an inclusive PE curriculum within the school.
'Equity and Inclusion in Physical Education and Sport' co-edited by Dr Gary Stidder and Sid Hayes, principal lecturers in Physical Education from the University of Brighton’s School of Sport and Service Management is due for publication by Routledge at the end of August.
