A Descriptive-Analytic Study of Teacher-Student Interaction in Mainstreamed Physical Education Classes.
Gauthier, R. Adrien
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether teachers interact differently with handicapped and normal students in a mainstreamed physical education class. Four elementary physical education classes were videotaped on five separate occasions. The resulting data were analyzed for differences in teacher-student interaction. It was observed that handicapped students received more positive feedback than normal students. However, normal students tended to receive more corrective feedback. A brief discussion is presented of the implications of these findings for educational settings other than physical education. (JD)
