Description
For primary education students.

Teaching Health & Physical Education in Australian Primary Schools is an introduction to the task of teaching Health and Physical Education (HPE). It provides an account of many of the issues and concerns students will encounter as a beginning teacher working within this Key Learning Area (KLA).

This book reflects the variability and complexity in the KLA as it is represented and experienced across Australian states and territories. Accommodating a diverse range of perspectives, students can adopt and implement approaches that best serve the contexts within which they will teach health, personal development and physical education.
