Analysis and Recommendations for the Health Education, Physical Education, and Recreation Education Activities of the ERIC Clearinghouse on Teacher Education: A Planning Document.
Davies, Hopkin M.; And Others
This report, prepared by the staff of the ERIC Clearinghouse on Teacher Education, analyzes the health education, physical education, and recreation education (HPR) work of the Clearinghouse, and recommends ways of improving the usefulness and comprehensiveness of that aspect of the ERIC system. The document (1) describes the ERIC system over-all; (2) provides a brief history of the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education and Recreation and ERIC's collaboration in the field of HPR; (3) explains what the Clearinghouse has done in the field of HPR in terms of its three major functions--data base building, user services, and information analysis; and (4) presents recommendations. The major recommendation is to establish a separate ERIC Clearinghouse on HPR. In the interim, it is recommended that the Clearinghouse on Teacher Education limit its resources for HPR to 20 percent; that the Thesaurus of ERIC Descriptors be improved to add more HPR descriptor terms; that there be an emphasis on acquiring documents not adequately covered in the data base; and that the Clearinghouse be more widely publicized to people in the health, physical education, and recreation community. Appendixes list the 16 ERIC Clearinghouses, members of the Administrative Committee and Advisory and Policy Council for the Clearinghouse on Teacher Education, and input forms for new HPR descriptor terms. An order form for computer searches is also included. (CD)
