Peer Exclusion at Physical Education
Sotosek, Gorazd
Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, Paper presented at the Annual International Conference of the Bulgarian Comparative Education Society (14th, Sofia, Bulgaria, Jun 14-17, 2016)
School sports give all pupils opportunity to learn to be tolerant to others regardless of their differences or shortcomings. This is getting more and more important due to the growing differences in physical and motor skills, different social backgrounds, besides there is a growing number of pupils having different backgrounds, nationalities, etc. Peer exclusion at Physical Education (PE) in primary schools which can take many forms should be treated properly, according to teachers' opinion. The most frequent causes of exclusion are the lack of motor skills, being overweight, some character features and social status as well. It is normally a very painful problem for the excluded pupil which often leads to avoiding sports activities or maybe even to cutting PE classes. Sports teachers should be aware of the problem, be able to identify the source of troubles in their classes and to solve them. [For the complete Volume 14, Number 1 proceedings, see ED568088.]
