"Positive Behavior Management in Physical Activity Settings is a knowledge base that is almost lost in teacher education. If you are a teacher and have challenges with your students' behavior and want more from your students than just following directions, but you want enthusiastic cooperation from your students, this is the book." Phillip Ward, PhD, FNAK, RFSA-- Director of the Learning to Teach Physical Education Research Program, Ohio State University
