Skills, Strategies, Sport, and Social Responsibility: Reconnecting Physical Education
Quay, John; Peters, Jacqui
Journal of Curriculum Studies, v40 n5 p601-626 Oct 2008
Physical education is one of the more difficult subjects in the curriculum for generalist classroom teachers in primary schools to incorporate confidently into their teaching. In many primary schools, the generalist classroom teacher defers to a physical education specialist. This situation has both positive and negative features. In this context, this study brings together several prominent models of physical education teaching in an approach that enables the curriculum to be encountered through the interests of the children. This approach offers a generalist teacher, through appropriate professional development, a means for delivering a high-quality physical education programme, and also complements the repertoire of the specialist physical education teacher at both primary and secondary school levels. (Contains 8 figures, 1 table and 6 notes.)
