Maple Ridge Physical Education Project: Evaluation of Stage II, 1981-82.
Moody, Peter R.
The Maple Ridge Physical Education Project's purpose is to assist selected schools in the implementation of quality daily physical education lessons. "Quality daily physical education" is considered to comprise at least three instructional physical education periods per week, plus a maximum of two physical activity sessions per week. This report explains and evaluates the project in six sections. The first section discusses implementation procedures, including references to participating schools, personnel, implementation activities, and the plan of action. Evaluation procedures are detailed in the second section. The third section outlines the implementation process by discussing its stages and the helping teacher's and project consultant's roles. The fourth section covers assessment of the implementation process on the parts of teachers, building principals, the district principal, helping teachers, and project consultants. Results from teacher questionnaires, teachers' assessment of school programs, and principals' ratings of school program elements are used in the fifth section to discuss the status of school physical education programs. The sixth section details project strengths and concerns and offers recommendations. Three appendices and 13 tables accompany the report. (JMK)
