This text is one of a series of activity texts emphasizing an individualized learning approach. It provides an individualized approach to the fundamental skills of track and field. The text introduces the student to the sport by treating the history and benefits of track and field, and by setting specific objectives for practice. Warm-up, training principles, and weight training are discussed along with essential definitions. The running events are discussed individually, and each section on an event deals with self-instruction and common errors. The chapter on field events also treats each event individually, discussing warm-up and training, self-instruction, and common errors. The book concludes with a detailed and comprehensive evaluation guide which provides for peer and instructor evaluation. Track and field records are given in the appendix.
