Teaching Cues for Sport Skills for Secondary School Students, Sixth Edition is a well-received, hands-on reference for coaches and teachers who aim to teach sport skills effectively and accurately. The emphasis on concise teaching cues helps students remember how to perform specific sport skills and helps teachers access information quickly from one reliable source.
