The Athletic Skills Model offers an alternative to dominant talent development theories in the form of holistic broad-based movement education, focusing on health and wellbeing. It places the emphasis on ‘physical intelligence’ – including attributes such as agility, flexibility and stability – through adaptable and varied training programmes, creating a skilled athlete before introducing sport specialization. The book sets out the scientific underpinnings of the ASM before going on to offer practical guidance on the content of the programme, how to adapt and vary the programme, and how to apply the approach to different age groups and sports. The ASM’s application in the youth development programme at AFC Ajax is explored in depth, before a future of talent development with an emphasis on athletic, rather than sport-specific, expertise is imagined. The Athletic Skills Model introduces an important and timely challenge to conventional wisdom in talent development and is a fascinating read for any upper-level student or researcher interested in youth development, skill acquisition, motor learning or sports coaching, and any coaches wanting to refresh their approach to talent development.

The development of an athlete from basic performance to elite level of accomplishment is a long and complicated process. Identifying and nurturing talent, developing and fine tuning sport skills, and maintaining high levels of performance over the course of a career requires many thousands of hours of training and, increasingly, the input and support of expert coaches and sport scientists. In this fully revised and updated new edition of the leading student and researcher overview of the development of sports expertise, a team of world-class sport scientists and professional coaches examine the fundamental science of skill acquisition and explore the methods by which science can be applied in the real-world context of sport performance. This book surveys the very latest research in skill acquisition, provides a comprehensive and accessible review of core theory and key concepts and includes an innovative ‘Coaches Corner’ feature in each chapter, in which leading coaches offer insights from elite sport and critique contemporary practice in sport skill development. With new chapters offering more material on key topics such as instruction and observation and expert visual perception, the second edition of Developing Sport Expertise is invaluable reading for all researchers and students in the areas of expertise in sport, skill acquisition, motor control and development, sport psychology, or coaching theory and practice.

Review of the previous edition: "This powerful book makes many of its points through the use of case studies and examples. Rarely, if ever, has discussion of so wide a variety of approaches to learning been gathered together in a single volume." British Journal of Educational Technology The new edition of this bestselling text provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to an array of models of teaching and learning. Written in a clear, engaging and accessible style, the authors offer a wide range of teaching strategies that have been developed, polished and studied over the last thirty years. Rather than being formulas to be followed word-for-word, each model draws teachers into the study of how students learn, promoting reflective action research in the classroom. Some of the models have been proven not only to accelerate learning, but also to allow pupils to engage in alternative modes of inquiry, which have been almost impossible to generate through traditional chalk-and-talk teaching. Updated features include: A foreword by Estelle Morris A new chapter on teaching adolescents with disabilities to read A wealth of new scenarios and examples with clear guidelines for implementation A new synectics study New research and illustrations A revised Picture Word Inductive Model Revisions and updates to ten chapters Updated appendix on Peer Coaching Guides Models of Learning, Tools for Teaching is an essential text for trainee teachers, practitioners, advisors, inspectors and teacher educators.
