[Data Based Gymnasium Model.]
Morehouse, Jim; And Others
Teaching Research, v11 n3 Mar 1983
The Data Based Gymnasium Model, a systematic approach to physical education for the severely handicapped, is described in this newsletter issue. The model was developed through a cooperative effort between Oregon State University and the Teaching Research Infant and Child Center. The "Game, Exercise, and Leisure Sport Curriculum for the Severely Handicapped" is divided into four major domains: movement concepts; basic game skills, physical fitness, and leisure movement. Skills, or programs, are task analyzed and systematically presented in teaching steps commensurate with the learning needs of the severely handicapped. The Data Based Gymnasium Model incorporates the basic component framework of the Teaching Research Data Based Classroom Model with adaptations for the needs of the physical education setting. The model employs a behavioral approach to instruction and conducts learning programs in both individual one-to-one settings and group settings. The staff training component includes direct inservice training and followup services. (SEW)
