Title:
Using the TGfU tactical hierarchy to enhance students understanding of game play : expanding the target games category
Authors:
Méndez, Giménez A.; Fernández, Río J.; Casey, Ashley ( 0000-0002-8232-5727 )
Abstract:
This article reviews the structural and functional elements of a group of activities denominated moving target games, and promotes its inclusion in the Teaching Games for Understanding framework as a new game category. It represents an attempt to enlarge Almond’s taxonomy (1986) to make the transition from one group to another smoother. The basic idea is to modify the structural elements of games to make them developmentally appropriate. Self-made equipment is also introduced as a tool to enhance the educational possibilities of these games. It is easy to make, it reduces the risk of causing damage to an opponent, and it gives students the opportunity to invent games. Finally, the article also tries to show how this approach can be implemented in schools.
