Be BOLD: Encouraging Girls to Include Unstructured Bouts of Physical Activity into Daily Routines
Hill, Kory; Williams, Gwynne M.
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v27 n4 p18-22 2014
Adolescent girls are less active than their male counterparts and physical activity levels tend to decline as one ages. One of the goals of concerned physical educators is to promote a physically active lifestyle and to teach skills and promote behaviors that will allow students to be active both in and out of school. This article presents a low-tech, simple assignment idea called Be BOLD, where adolescent girls discuss the rewards and barriers to maintaining a physically active lifestyle. Following the discussion, the girls are charged with recording or recalling instances throughout the week where they have incorporated additional physical activity.
