The book explores why and how to involve students in the construction of games, how to use the model in curriculums at the elementary and secondary levels and in teacher education programs, and how assessment factors in. It examines how to integrate the model with sport education, covers the social interactions and decision-making processes involved in the model, and details the implications of model-based instruction for research on teaching.
