Physical Education Teaching Problems for Analysis and Solution.
Healey, John H.; Healey, William A.
This book is designed to help orient prospective and beginning physical education teachers to problems they may encounter and decisions they may need to make. After an introduction to problems and solutions, the first chapter discusses the importance and outcomes of problem solving in education. Chapter two describes the problem-solving process as a series of steps which must be taken in order to solve a given problem. The third chapter is a detailed solution to a problem using the process for problem-solving just described. It serves as a guide for students in solving problems presented in chapter four. The fourth chapter, as well as the remaining eighteen chapters, present examples of typical concerns which often exist in the modern school system in the area of physical education. The problems are discussed relative to administration; attendance, tardiness, and absence; community relations; counseling and guidance; discipline; dress and grooming; drinking; drugs; legal liability; school policy; religion; sex; smoking; and stealing. Using the material presented in the first three chapters, students can be expected to solve these problems. (Author/PB)
