Temel, Cenk; Güllü, Mehmet
Educational Research and Reviews, v11 n8 p530-536 Apr 2016
The current study aimed to analyze the social gender perception in physical education classes in Turkey through the pictures drawn by students about the physical education class. The document analysis technique, which is a qualitative research method, was used in the study. In the light of this aim, the pictures drawn by a total of 394 students (190 females and 204 males) aged 11 years, who were enrolled in 12 schools in five different cities in Turkey were analyzed upon the permission obtained from the Ministry of National Education. The analysis included four themes and the themes were analyzed along with the results. It was concluded that although physical education classes are taught to mixed gender groups in Turkey, physical education class activities had an effect on female students shaping the formation of social gender, while they formed extremely sharp gender roles for male students.
