Implementing a Tactical Games Approach with Sport Education: A Chronicle
Gubacs-Collins, Klara; Olsen, Edward B.
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance (JOPERD), v81 n3 p36-42 Mar 2010
This article discusses the challenges encountered by a middle school practitioner over a five-year period when implementing the tactical games approach within the sport education model. Included are genuine quotes (extracted from video tapes and written records) from the students, the principal at the practitioner's school, a guidance counselor, the child study team, and a parent whose child was exposed to the models. By presenting a practitioner's chronicle of experiences, this article seeks to give a "hands-on" answer to the question "Do these models work and can they be combined?" It is hoped that this information will assist K-12 instructors in their own implementation of these models. (Contains 1 table.)
