Teachers' Perceptions of Using Movement in the Classroom
Benes, Sarah; Finn, Kevin E.; Sullivan, Eileen C.; Yan, Zi
Physical Educator, v73 n1 2016
A mixed-methods design was employed to explore classroom teachers' perceptions of using movement in the classroom. Questions on a written survey and in interviews were focused on gaining understandings of teachers' knowledge of the connections between movement and learning, their perceptions about movement as a teaching strategy, and the role of schools in addressing physical inactivity. Teachers reported a lack of knowledge related to movement in the classroom but were willing to learn more and add movement to their "teaching toolbox" with support and training. They also believe that schools should have a role in increasing physical activity opportunities in youth.
