The textbook

Higher Physical Education 

Perform to the very best of your ability in Higher PE as you master the theory and overcome the challenges of the exam.

This highly visual textbook contains dozens of diagrams that make it easier to understand and remember the content.

  • Be guided through each area of the course. All the mandatory knowledge, skills and specification points are structured into a logical sequence for students and teachers
  • Get to grips with the command words. Find out what each of the five command words is asking students to do and then use the strategies provided to answer questions across each area of the course
  • Learn through practice. Enjoy an active approach to theory, applying and developing knowledge through lots of dynamic and varied tasks, rather than lots of reading
  • Feel confident about the exam. Tips throughout the book explain how to answer questions effectively. End-of-chapter exam-style questions and two practice papers help students to revise and prepare for the exam
  • Check understanding. Over 30 pages of detailed answers for all tasks, exam-style questions and practice papers are included at the back of the book, to support independent learning

The book concludes with a special chapter for teachers, which provides ideas for fun, interactive teaching strategies that are based on the latest pedagogical research into retrieval practice, cooperative learning and active learning.
