Teaching under the Influence: Feeding Games for Understanding into the Sport Education Development-Refinement Cycle
Alexander, Ken; Penney, Dawn
Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, v10 n3 p287-301 Nov 2005
In this contribution to the special issue on Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU), we outline how the Sport Education curriculum model constitutes an organisational framework within which a TGfU pedagogy might productively be located and utilised. In addition, we describe our application of the development-refinement process to the progress of Sport Education in an outcomes-based educational environment. This has led to a new relationship between Sport Education and TGfU within what we call the "Clinic-Game Day" (CGD) model. Included are two tables depicting typical Clinic and Game-Day instructional formats. We conclude by foregrounding a number of workplace factors that may affect the adoption of the CGD. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
