Summary, etc.:
"The book introduces the concept of physical literacy as a component to whole-person literacy and addresses how libraries should be offering opportunities for movement-based learning. Based on a solid foundation of neuroscience, kinesiology, and data on current physical literacy trends in libraries and other institutions, it argues for increasing kinetic programming as a catalyst for increasing other literacies, such as textual, aural/oral, emotional, visual, financial, digital, and spatial literacy. Themes center on passive vs. active programs, modifications for persons with exceptionalities, and making movement-based programs accessible for everyone regardless of socio-economic status, race, gender, age and physical or cognitive ability. The book provides clear step-by-step models and strategies for delivering physical literacy programs including: where to find funding, getting administrative and municipal buy-in, creating partnerships in the community, possible legal issues, marketing tactics, trainingstaff and volunteers, and how to evaluate programs"-- Provided by publisher.
