Teachers' Beliefs and Implementation of Competitive Activities for Multicultural Students
Bernstein, Eve; Lysniak, Ulana
Urban Education, v52 n8 p1019-1045 Oct 2017
Physical education teachers' (N = 9) beliefs and implementation of competitive activities for middle school multicultural student populations (Grades 6-8) in physical education class in the Greater New York area were examined. Data were collected by nonparticipant observation and field notes, two semistructured interviews, and postobservation informal interviews. The theory of reasoned action guided the study. Three themes emerged: competitive activities, an introduction to culture; using demonstration to teach competitive activity skills to diverse students; and creating community. Successful instruction of diverse students was observed; however, fully incorporating cultural relevance through competitive activities was not fully demonstrated.
