Melville, D. Scott; Maddalozzo, John G. F.
Journal of Teaching in Physical Education, v7 n4 p343-52 Jul 1988
Examination of high school students' responses to two exercise videotapes, one with the instructor's appearance altered so that he appeared overweight, indicated that the instructor's appearance may be a powerful mediator of teaching effectiveness. Students exhibited a lesser intent to exercise and less favorably rated the overweight instructor's likeability, expertise, and role model appropriateness. (Author/CB)
