Effective Teaching in Physical Education: The View from a Variety of Trenches
Lindsay, Elaine L.
Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, v85 n1 p31-37 2014
Determining the effectiveness of physical education teachers is a difficult process complicated by the expectations of the building principals, the extensiveness of national and state standards, student ability levels, and the severely limited time that the programs are allotted. The dearth of effective, efficient evaluation tools lends itself to program marginalization and continued erosion of time. Increasing research on the benefits of daily physical activity coupled with new "National Standards in Physical Education" may help to improve programs and teacher effectiveness. This commentary includes examples of the problems associated with determining teacher effectiveness and student achievement.
