Concerns of Teachers About Implementing Individualized Instruction in the Physical Education Setting.
Knowles, Claudia Jane
Teacher attitudes toward adopting individualized physical education programs for handicapped children were measured by the Stages-of-Concern questionnaire. This questionnaire was developed as a diagnostic tool for identifying personal reactions to an innovation. These reactions range from mere awareness of the innovation, through personal concerns about its impact and ramifications, to acceptance and experienced use. In this study teachers were tested before and after a seven week training period on physical education for the handicapped. The results indicated that implementing innovative programs can be facilitated by trainers focusing on individual teachers' needs and concerns. (JD)
