Professional Insiders/Outsiders? Teacher Professionalism and the Primary School Physical Education Specialist
Brooks, Caroline; DinanThompson, Maree
Asia-Pacific Journal of Health, Sport and Physical Education, v4 n3 p235-248 2013
This paper provides a context for exploring the positioning of Physical Education specialist teachers (PE specialist teachers) in primary schools in Queensland in the discourses of teacher professionalism. A critical analysis of literature on the history and status of the subject and its practitioners aims to contextualize discourses in and about professionalism and the primary school PE specialist. The paper demonstrates the location of the PE specialist teacher in an Australian context under independent and interdependent themes. This critical review of literature identifies a lack of studies and research in the area of teacher professionalism as described, defined and enacted by PE specialist teachers.
