Using Public Posting as a Motivation Strategy in Physical Education, Sport, and Adult Exercise Settings
Martin, Matt; Sharpe, Tom
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v22 n3 p8-13 Jan-Feb 2009
One of the ongoing challenges that physical educators, coaches, and fitness professionals face is discovering and implementing motivational strategies that encourage long-term participation and effort. This challenge exists in public school physical education classes, on the playing field, and in structured adult physical activity settings. In this article, the authors discuss the use of public posting as a motivation strategy in physical education, sport, and adult exercise settings. Public posting in academic and sport settings generally involves a publicly displayed record of performance for all participants to view and review on a regular basis before and after completing lessons in physical education, practices on the athletic field, and participation in structured exercise classes. (Contains 2 tables and 3 figures.)
