Connecting Research to Practice: Searching for Evidence to Support Favorable Student Behaviors
Wenos, Jeanne; Trick, Teri
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v84 n1 p46-50 2013
Educators have reported feeling stressed, overwhelmed, or demoralized when undesirable student behaviors are coupled with other instructional and programmatic barriers. Although helpful resources abound, it is not always easy to connect research to practice. Teachers can benefit from evidence-based practice (EBP), which basically involves reading the right papers at the right time and then modifying one's behavior. For physical educators, the goal of EBP is to enhance the way they approach student learning by reading and applying the latest information. The purposes of this article are (1) to increase the understanding of student behaviors in the context of task demands and the environment and (2) to help equip educators to search for relevant information.
