Essential Of Physical education
Physical education, also known as Phys Ed., PE, gym, or gym class, and known in many Commonwealth countries as physical training or PT, is an educational course related to maintaining the human body through physical exercises (i.e. calisthenics). It is taken during primary and secondary education and encourages psychomotor learning in a play or movement exploration setting to promote health. Whether the class produces positive effects on students’ health, behavior, and academic performance depends upon the kind of program that is taught. Physical Education programs vary all over the world. However, there are worldwide organizations that allow for a better understanding on how much exercise a child should be getting daily. Popular games in PE include football, netball, hockey, rounders, athletics and cricket. Physical Education (PE) develops the skills, knowledge, values and attitudes needed for establishing and enjoying an active and healthy lifestyle, as well as building student confidence and competence in facing challenges as individuals and in groups or teams, through a wide range of learning activities. PE is offered as an elective examination subject at senior secondary education level. It emphasizes the connection between theory and practical skills and is designed to develop the interest and potential of students in the areas of PE and sports. It will help students gain a deeper understanding of theories and applications in the fields of human movement and health, and it will promote the well-being of individuals and society. This book is written for students of B.P. Ed, M.P. Ed and all aspiring competitive students. The entire course is covered and complex matters are explained through illustrations.
