Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility: Past, Present and Future
Martinek, Tom; Hellison, Don
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v87 n5 p9-13 2016
This article provides an overview of how the teaching for personal and social responsibility (TPSR) model has evolved. Its birthplace--a gym--is described where things were tried out, ideas tested, and learning about what worked and what did not work took place. Secondly, the present-day applications of the TPSR are examined--its use by a variety of professionals who work with kids in numerous settings (and ways). Finally, the article concludes with an assessment of the TPSR model and its future role in youth development programming. This will include a portrayal of school and community-based programs: their future missions, support and ideological underpinnings. Problems that face society, especially in segments of the underserved, will not go away. Preparing for the future challenges facing youth will require practitioners who view youth as contributors to their community instead of as problems. Such a commitment will interface well with the spirit of TPSR and will certainly be a response to the question: "What is worth doing and what is possible?"
