Abstract

A constraints-led approach for games and sport teaching has been distinguished by some authors through the more prominent emphasis on implicit learning and discovery teaching as a non-linear pedagogy. In this chapter we posit that the pedagogical acts of a constraints-led approach can be viewed through a fundamental proposition – pedagogical decision making. We use the non-verses concept of The Spectrum while identifying the decisions being made between the teacher and student/s to examine two constraints-led learning episodes. This allows both episodes to be seen from the lens of pedagogical decision making.
