Mingling with Our Friends: The Kinesiology Student and Pedagogy Knowledge
Silverman, Stephen
Quest, v59 n1 p92-99 Feb 2007
In this paper I discuss why pedagogy knowledge and skills may be appropriate for kinesiology students who are not in teacher education programs. After briefly reviewing the changes that have occurred in undergraduate kinesiology and physical education programs, a case is made that students with a degree in kinesiology should have some knowledge of physical education in order to participate in discussions of children's physical activity. In addition, I argue that for some kinesiology students pedagogy knowledge and skill would be good additions to undergraduate programs since many students assume positions requiring pedagogy-related skills. While discussing various types of pedagogy-related knowledge and skills I suggest a number of ways to integrate them into the kinesiology undergraduate curriculum.
