Movement education

An approach to physical education that gives students an intellectual understanding of each physical movement before they are asked to perform the movement. By first comprehending how each movement is performed and the range of movements of which their bodies are capable, students gain self-confidence and find it easy to attempt the particular movement. Developed in England after World War II, the approach subsequently gained wide acceptance among physical education teachers in the United States—first in early childhood education, then in rehabilitating the physically handicapped. As videotaping became standard practice in physical education and sports training, movement education was integrated into every level of physical education and athletics.
