Physical Education NCATE Guidelines.
American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance, Reston, VA. National Association for Sport and Physical Education.
The purpose of this monograph is to familiarize physical education teacher educators with the process and content associated with a National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) review of undergraduate physical education teacher education programs. A framework was developed that reflects the state of the art in terms of teacher preparation in physical education, soundly based in the literature concerning teacher education in physical education, and acceptable to a majority of teacher education professionals. Generalized guidelines were developed that reflect three inter-related components of physical education teacher education--the study of physical education teaching speciality, physical education as a profession, and pedagogical elements of physical education. The first section of the monograph is an instructional manual for NCATE evaluations at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and advanced programs. Section two presents guidelines and standards for undergraduate academic courses in physical education. (JD)
