Undergraduate Physical Education Programs: Issues and Approaches.
Lawson, Hal A., Ed.
Papers presented at the National Professional Preparation Conference in Physical Education were revised and expanded for publication in this monograph. In part I, two papers, "Professional Preparation Conferences: One More Time" (W. G. Anderson) and "Current Context and Future Curriculum" (M. J. Ellis), set the stage for a presentation of alternatives. Both papers raise questions which are helpful in assessing the approaches to the education of physical education teachers presented in the papers in part II: (1) "Competency-Based Teacher Preparation in Physical Education at Washington State University" (M. L. Enberg, W. Harrington, and L. V. Cady); (2) "The Preparation of Physical Education Teachers: A Subject-Matter-Centered Model" (L. F. Locke, C. L. Mand, and D. Siedentop); (3)"A Disciplinary Model for a Curriculum in Kinesiological Sciences" (B. F. Husman, D. H. Clarke, and D. L. Kelley); and (4) "Undergraduate Physical Education: A Cross-Disciplinary Model" (W. R. Morford, H. A. Lawson, and R. S. Hutton). Papers in parts III, IV, and V, which deal with the topics of program accreditation, analysis and synthesis, and viewpoints toward the future, include: (1) "Accreditation: Is the Horse Already Out of the Barn?" (P. S. Brassie); (2) Professional Preparation: Quality and Diversity" (L. L. Bain); (3) "Textures" (W. Harper); (4) "Issues as Reflections" (M. E. Kneer); and (5) "Undergraduate Preparation: Marching to Different Drummers" (A. A. Annarino). (JD)
