Math, Hannah; And Others
This report summarizes and compares the results of a survey conducted on a pretest and posttest basis regarding teacher attitudes towards physical education. Ninety-six teachers, representing 14 schools, returned the questionnaire in the fall, and 75 of these same teachers returned the spring questionnaire. The following points summarize the main findings. (1) More teachers are making regular use of a wider variety of areas for physical education activities. (2) Over two-thirds of the respondents are satisfied with the facilities available to them. (3) More teachers are involved more frequently in personal physical activities outside the school. (4) Nearly all respondents (92%) conduct physical education activities either daily of 3 to 4 times a week. (5) More teachers are spending longer (20 or more minutes) on their physical education activities. (6) Four out of five of the teachers now enjoy their physical education activities. (7) Nearly all pupils (95%) reportedly enjoy physical education. (8) A majority of teachers in both fall and spring feel that time given to physical education activities is not done at the expense of other subject areas. (9) Eighty-seven percent of the respondents did not experience any major difficulty with their physical activities program. (10) Three-quarters have observed positive effects on attitudes and/or performance of pupils as a result of their physical education program. (MM)
