Curriculum Design: Purposes and Processes in Physical Education Teaching-Learning.
Jewett, Ann E.; Mullan, Marie R.
This monograph is a progress report on efforts to develop curriculum theory for physical education. It focuses on the development of individual human motor performance and the utilization of selected movement learning media to achieve specified educational outcomes in relational perception and orientation in space. Concerned essentially with the development of a purpose-process conceptual framework for curricular decision-making, the document seeks to relate proposed curriculum theory to the more comprehensive theories underlying the entire discipline of human movement phenomena. A taxonomy of human movement processes is outlined for utilization in: (1) defining educational objectives; (2) sequencing learning materials; (3) providing augmented feedback to learners; and (4) evaluating student progress. The proposed aim is to highlight the potential of planned purpose-process interactions for enriched movement learning experiences resulting in sounder physical education curricula. A model for decision-making and a high school physical education curriculum guide are provided in appendices. Diagrams and tables are presented throughout the document, as well as a bibliography at the end. (Author/DS)
