CONTRIBUTIONS REGARDING THE IMPROVEMENT OF BASKETBALL LEARNING THROUGH THE USE OF PREPARATION GAMES DURING THE SEVENTH GRADE PHYSICAL EDUCATION LESSON
So far, there have been specialized books written about the learning of basketball only for school athletic units, for professional athletes starting with mini-basketball up to seniors, the primary and middle-school teachers benefiting from very little literature.
In this study, we set out to study how much the middle-school system of research and assessment regarding the motor skills is done using the specific basketball means and methods, trying also to increase the effectiveness and attractiveness of the Physical Education lesson by using these means. By using the existent bibliographical material, I was able to design the basic elements of this paper, thinking that I would be able to improve the basketball component, from such a vast domain as the physical education. Due to the fact that the whole material is grouped for each motor skill, it can be used in all middle-school grades, according to the pupils' age and training level. The methods and means presented here do not exclude and are not a substitute for the specific Physical Education means and methods. Each teacher has a professional experience that allows him/her to associate the ideas presented in this paper with other, new ones, thus ensuring the lessons have a varied, effective, and attractive content.
