Thoughtful Decision Making in Physical Education: A Modest Proposal
McBride, Ron; Xiang, Ping
Quest, v56 n3 p337-354 Aug 2004
A number of research agendas including teaching games for understanding, invasion games tactics, cooperative learning, seeking solutions to ill-defined problems, and examining learner's use of domain specific knowledge share thoughtful decision making as a common denominator. For the most part, each of these research strands have been investigated individually with little effort to link findings to a larger construct addressing thoughtful classrooms. This paper discusses the agendas and proposes a schema whereby thoughtful decision making represents a common conduit that might well lead to a more inclusive and informative theoretical model in physical education.
