Physical Educator, v64 n2 p94-101 Spr 2007
The purpose of this study was to examine how physical education teacher's verbal aggressiveness, as perceived by the students, is related to students' fair play self-reported behaviors. Four hundred twenty-nine physical education students completed two questionnaires during physical education classes. Correlation analysis revealed that there was a positive significant relationship between teachers' verbal aggression and antisocial fair play behaviors; and a negative, significant relationship between teachers' verbal aggression and prosocial fair play behaviors. Regression analyses indicated that teachers' verbal aggression could significantly predict students' self reported prosocial and antisocial fair play behaviors. Findings and implications for teacher communication are discussed and future research suggestions are made. (Contains 2 tables.)
