Developing Levels of Conceptualization for Teachers of Physical Education.
Hare, Molly K.
Teaching Elementary Physical Education, v13 n1 p6-9 Jan 2002
Acquiring subject matter knowledge and developing teaching methodology in university coursework facilitates changes in conceptions of teaching. Professional conferences and mentor programs help beginning teachers continue acquiring this content and pedagogical knowledge. Through this developmental stage, physical educator majors' and beginning teachers' understanding of teaching takes the form of different levels of conceptualization (preconceptions, naive conceptions, appropriate conceptions, and misconceptions).
