Sport as a Developmental Experience for Girls.
Murray, Mimi
The author examines (1) sport as a medium for attitude learning, (2) achievement as an attitude to be modified in girls, and (3) educational sport as a teaching model through which achievement attitudes in elementary school girls can be affected. Sport is seen as an ideal mechanism for attitude change since it has all the characteristics of a social system without the reality consequences. Achievement is recognized as an attitude needing further development in girls due to its value in society and the greater emphasis (in the socialization process) on male achievement rather than female achievement. A teaching model--educational sport--is developed to promote cognitive, affective, and psychomotor learning. Nine specific practical techniques are presented for use in educational sports. A bibliography of 112 citations is appended. (MJB)
