The Routledge Handbook of Youth Physical Activity

Irudia - The Routledge Handbook of Youth Physical Activity

egilea: Mikel Bringas, 

Mugiment egitasmoak gizarte aktiboa sortzeko asmoa du, eta helburua betetzeko ume eta gazteekin egindako lana oso garrantzitsua da. Aurretik argitaratu dugun bezala, ume eta gazteen jarduera fisikoaren errealitatea nolakoa den ezagutzeko asmoz Global Matrix ekimenean parte hartuko dugu, eta honetaz gain azelerometroak erabilita jarduera fisikoaren maila neurtuko da.

Ume eta gazteen jarduera fisikoaren inguruan gehiago ezagutzeko asmoz, The Routledge Handbook of Youth Physical Activity liburua irakurri dut. Ez zait erraza egin, ingelesez idatzitako liburu luzea baita, baina ahaleginak merezi izan duela uste dut.

Hauexek dira nabarmenduko nituzke alderdiak:

  • Elkarlan ikaragarria: 112 egile aritu dira edukia sortzen.
  • Lan zabala: 794 orri, oso ondo antolatutako ataletan azalduta.
  • Gehiena testua izan arren, 55 taula eta 60 irudi ditu, gaiak ulertzeko lagungarriak direnak.
  • Ikuspegi praktikoa: ikerlari eta profesionalentzako gomendio asko eskaintzen ditu eta gai bakoitzean dauden arazoak eta mugak argitzen ditu.
  • Bibliografia oso zabala eta eguneratuta.

Hala ere, badira bi detaile hain positibo iruditu ez zaizkidanak. Alde batetik, liburua horrela aurkezten da: “The Routledge Handbook of Youth Physical Activity is key reading for all advanced students, researchers, practitioners, and policy-makers with an interest in physical activity, youth sport, public health matters, sport studies, or physical education”. Denontzat interesgarria izanik ere, nire ustez eduki gehiena ikerketaren ikuspegitik idatzita dago. Bestaldetik, atal batzuetan hainbat eduki errepikatzen dira (esaterako jarduera fisikoaren onurak). Imajinatzen dut 112 egile koordinatzea ez dela batere lan samurra.

Irudiak eta taulak nolakoak diren ikusteko, jarraian erakutsiko dizkizuet bi adibide.

Bukatzeko, liburuak jorratzen dituen gaiak aurkeztuko dizkizuet. Hemendik aurrera gaiaren inguruko zalantzarik badut, badakit non aurkitu informazioa, liburua multitresna horietako bat bezalakoa baita.
