Accountability in the Gymnasium: A Behavior Analysis Approach.
McKenzie, Thomas L.
Physical educators will soon be confronted with having to demonstrate measurable and recognizable results of their teaching, particularly in terms of student physical, recreational, and social skills; this requires not only a focus on broad objectives, but a specific focus on short-term objectives that can be taught systematically. Behavioral objectives and analyses, for example, might address the following: social development and socialization in children, attitudes toward physical activity, and problems of the handicapped. For many physical education programs, accountability will require concentrating resources in a single area to demonstrate genuine valuable accomplishments. (DS)
