Lesson organisation and management

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter provides some guidance regarding the development and application of the skills. It seeks to provide examples of when and where such skills can be applied effectively within the teaching environment to enhance pupil learning. The chapter describes effective organisation and management to underpin an effective learning environment. It establishes effective rules and routines. The practical nature of physical education means that the planning and organisation of a lesson prior to the arrival of a class are very important. Most off-task activity occurs during transitions between activities within a lesson. Organisation and management during a lesson begin when the pupils arrive at the changing room to start the lesson and conclude when they leave the physical education area at the end of the lesson. Routines in physical education are valuable and important. Expectations, routines and procedures are very often specific to particular activity settings, for example, swimming, athletics and outdoor and adventurous activities.
