Elementary-Aged Students Perceptions Regarding Appropriate Instructional Practices in Physical Education
Barney, David; Christenson, Robert
Physical Educator, v71 n1 2014
Elementary physical educators promote their content to help students learn in the psychomotor, affective, and cognitive domains. One of the best methods to reach this is by implementing appropriate instructional practices. For this study, 2,479 elementary-aged students participated. Students were surveyed (survey of 24 statements) to ascertain their knowledge of appropriate instructional practices in elementary physical education. A majority of students incorrectly identified 11 of the 24 survey statements. For example, elementary-aged students feel it is appropriate to have captains pick teams in front of the whole class and that it is appropriate to play dodge ball. With these results, elementary physical educators have a great opportunity educate and expose their students to appropriate instructional practices.
