Promoting Leadership in Physical Education and Recreation
Lieberman, Lauren J.; Arndt, Katrina; Daggett, Sara
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance (JOPERD), v78 n3 p46-50 Mar 2007
A natural extension of inclusion should be to increase opportunities for leadership and the development of leadership skills. The leadership experience can improve a student's self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-perception, and it is important for all students, including those with disabilities, to have this experience. Leadership opportunities can be provided by teachers and other professionals in a variety of ways, even during physical education class. This article discusses some examples and examines leadership opportunities within existing curricular models.
