The ABC approach provides curriculum designers with a systematic decision-making process for developing a curriculum that addresses unique and diverse needs. And it allows designers to incorporate national, state, and local content and assessment standards in their curricula. The book takes teachers through every phase of curriculum design: foundational understanding of design, development, implementation, and evaluation. Further, it shows teachers how to document that their curriculum is working—a valuable asset in an era of budget cuts. Other outstanding features include: Opening Scenario, Expected Outcomes, and Making It Work special elements in each chapter to help future teachers understand how to apply the book’s content in school settings- instruction on implementing the curriculum and sharing it with others- strategies for planning, implementing, and evaluating a curriculum and establishing credibility for it- emphasis on student achievement as an indicator of a quality physical education program- forms and worksheets (completed examples and blanks) that give future teachers a hands-on approach to developing, assessing, and revising a curriculum.
