Getting Girls in the Game: Action Research in the Gymnasium
Robinson, Daniel B.
Canadian Journal of Action Research, v14 n3 p3-28 2013
This article presents an action research project focused on improving physical education (PE) for adolescent female students. One university researcher, three male PE teachers, and 13 of their most disengaged female students participated in the one-year, two-cycle, action research project. The process and results are offered so that future PE teacher educators and PE teachers might recognize action research as a possibility for effecting positive change within PE programs. The results suggest PE teachers and their students can benefit from similar action research projects. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
