Swimming is a widely popular sport and activity with great health-related fitness benefits. Yet, a significant percentage of children are unable to swim with any degree of skill—meaning not only are they missing out on health benefits, but they also are at risk when in water. Part of that risk comes from receiving either no instruction or no differentiated instruction. Children receiving swimming lessons are commonly grouped by age or grade, and many lack the basic skills required for their age levels. Assessments and Activities for Teaching Swimming solves this problem by offering differentiated instruction for every participant in your class or program, based on each participant’s aquatic developmental level. Through this illustrated book, you will be able to • use an assessment tool to evaluate the initial skill level of every participant, • place each participant in the appropriate level, and • teach skills through fun activities and monitor each participant’s skill acquisition along the way. Assessments and Activities for Teaching Swimming will help you accommodate nearly all of your participants’ abilities. With the six-level tool you will be able to assess initial aquatic performance levels for children with and without disabilities and provide appropriate activities to help participants develop their skills. The book is presented in two parts. Part I offers teaching strategies to help you maximize the aquatic experience for swimmers with and without disabilities. It also guides you in selecting the assessment and activity level so that you can provide a fun and successful experience for all swimmers. Part II lays out six distinct levels, from developing and building on initial skills to learning and refining specific strokes. Some skills are introduced early on and then repeated in a more difficult form at a later level. The final level focuses on longer-distance swimming, flip turns, competitive swimming, and prerequisite skills for lifeguard training. These six levels, along with the assessment instruments, accommodate most participants’ abilities. You’ll find the assessment instruments and activities very easy to use. Even those who have not been trained as instructors or teachers can implement the activities regardless of the swimmers’ levels. Assessments and Activities for Teaching Swimming can help all participants take part in safe, fun aquatic activities that will improve their health-related fitness and well-being.

Research supports the premise that students learn most quickly when they are provided instruction that requires a variety of creative and critical thinking skills, study techniques and metacognitive strategies. Each quick, little- or no-prep activity in Thinking Games and Activities utilizes these skills and strategies. The critical thinking games and activities can be used as individual assignments or as class tasks, or they can be used as competitions between groups to reinforce skills or concepts. They can also be used whenever you have spare time available during the school day?a few extra minutes at the end of class, traveling on the bus or waiting for an assembly to begin. You will find that once you have introduced these games to your students, they will ask to play them again and again! Reproducible worksheets are included.

A handbook for parents and course instructors on baby swimming. It contains basic knowledge gained from practical experience as well as scientific findings on how babies can be encouraged and furthered in all senses from an early age through baby swimming. The specifically developed teaching concept, the Grip ABC, the water-pouring diving method and numerous ideas for movement and games are all presented here. The author also explores who can take part in baby swimming, how this course is run and what one must pay attention to when in the water with a baby. There is also critical discussion of the questions of why a child can be furthered in the water, why the element of water can rouse our bodies and senses in a special way, and why it is a good idea to get a baby used to the water.
