Chapter 5: Introducing Innovation to Those Who Matter Most--The P-12 Pupils' Perceptions of Model-Based Instruction
Metzler, Michael W.; McCullick, Bryan A.
Journal of Teaching in Physical Education, v27 n4 p512-528 Oct 2008
The series of studies in this monograph examined the adoption of model-based instruction (MBI) as an innovative approach to teaching physical education. This innovation must be learned and used by preservice teachers, and then ultimately accepted by pupils in schools where student teachers plan for and implement MBI. Decisions by student teachers to reject or adopt MBI at the end of that experience will likely depend on the messages they receive from their P-12 pupils. This chapter focuses on P-12 pupils as significant change agents in the adoption of MBI by preservice/student teachers--agents that play an indirect, probably unintentional, but arguably the "most" influential role in adoption decisions made by new physical education teachers. Thus, the purpose of this chapter is to analyze the perceptions of pupils in P-12 schools regarding their experiences with the MBI approach being implemented by student teachers. Specifically, the authors analyzed how those pupils perceived the use of the models in terms of their novelty, amount of perceived learning, and preferences for engagement. (Contains 2 tables.)
