Using Pedometers in School and Community
Paperback with reproducible pages
By Robert P. Pangrazi, Aaron Beighle, and Cara L. Sidman. A multifaceted approach to physical activity centers on electronic step-counting devices. The authors outline methods for raising funds for, purchasing, and maintaining a class set of pedometers; introducing them to students; applying the counters to impart self-management, motivational, and goal-setting skills; and keeping track of one’s progress from different angles via sample charts and graphs. Sixty-five well-researched, field-tested activities (all with complete instructions) are sorted by students’ general grade level, or for family or community participation. Chapters end with lists of references and websites for more information. Illustrated. Human Kinetics. 170 pages. Second Edition. ©2007.
