Concepts and Careers in Physical Education. Second Edition.
Clayton, Robert D.; Clayton, Joyce A.
This text is designed for students considering a career in physical education. It describes and illustrates the purposes of American physical education, the knowledges of science and society which contribute to this discipline, the career possibilities available to professionals, and the characteristics and responsibilities of successful physical educators. It also outlines a program whereby the student's qualifications for the profession can be examined both by self and the advisor, with the intent of comparing these results with other physical education majors and with successful professional persons in the field. The text is organized into four major areas: Commencement, Concepts, Careers, and Commitment. Early in each chapter, a number of concepts are presented that summarize the chapter contents, and terms that are introduced in the chapter are defined. (MM)
