The teaching scenarios in this book provide opportunities for you to think critically about real-life situations, to question and explore, and to empower yourself in the process. The stories presented represent actual cases faced by a diverse group of physical educators from across the country. Listen to their voices! You will likely find yourself able to relate to and understand many of these cases. You may find yourself saying, "Yes, this might happen to me."
We hope that you will use this book to explore issues of diversity and disability, attitude and ethics, behavior management, conflict resolution, and inclusion strategies that will assist you in working with individuals with varied abilities and disabilities. Our intent is to empower you in your thinking as it relates to providing those individuals with safe, satisfying, and successful physical activity experiences.
