Hybridising Sport Education and Teaching for Personal and Social Responsibility to Include Students with Disabilities
Menendez, Jose Ignacio; Fernandez-Rio, Javier
European Journal of Special Needs Education, v32 n4 p508-524 2017
The present study aimed to explore the impact of the combination of two pedagogical models, Sport Education and Teaching for Personal and Social Responsibility, for learners with disabilities experiencing a contactless kickboxing learning unit. Twelve secondary education students agreed to participate. Five had disabilities (intellectual and motor). Additionally, three physical education teachers and the mother of one of the students contributed. Five different research instruments were used to obtain information from all participants: drawings, open-ended questions, discussion groups, diaries and semi-structured interviews. Thematic content analysis and constant comparison guided data analysis resulted in three major categories: "part of the team," "learning" and "enjoyment." Several ideas were also identified: "inclusion," "friendship," "cooperation," "students' important role" and "transference." In conclusion, the hybridisation of Sport Education and Teaching for Personal and Social Responsibility seems to be a powerful tool for including students with disabilities in physical education, helping them and their classmates connect in and out of class.
