Sports and Recreational Activities

cover imageFor the third consecutive edition, Liz Miller has contributed the Inline Skating chapter in this college text book updated every two years.  The Fourteenth Edition contains a condensed, 15-page version of Get Rolling, the Beginner’s Guide to Inline Skating. Since it’s geared toward future instructors, Chapter 16 begins with readers’ objectives and ends with Teaching Strategies and Considerations, not found in Get Rolling. The chapter is completed with a detailed Glossary and Resources section.

Available on as a large-format paperback book, Sports and Recreational Activities was compiled for McGraw Hill by authors Dale Mood, Frank Musker, and Judith Rink. To quote Amazon’s Book Description:

This comprehensive text offers fundamental information on forty-two different sports and recreational activities. Up-to-date material includes an overview of all aspects of the sport, including history, equipment, rules, fundamental skills, techniques, etiquette, strategy, teaching considerations, leadup games, and reference materials, including videos. This textbook can be used effectively by participants, instructors, and instructors-to-be.

And yes, I did list the web sites of skating colleagues and organizations in my Resources appendix!
