Merging Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility with Sport Education: A Marriage Made in Heaven or Hell?
Gordon, Barrie
ACHPER Australia Healthy Lifestyles Journal, v56 n3-4 p13-16 2009
Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility (TPSR) is a pedagogical approach to the teaching of physical education that has been developed with the intention of helping students to become more personally and socially responsible. One prominent model that appears to be almost a natural partner to TPSR within physical education is that of Sport Education. This article explores the teaching of TPSR and Sport Education as a merged model; it looks at the commonalities between the models that suggest teaching the two together will be successful, and at the tensions and problems that may arise when this occurs. The article concludes with suggestions for teachers contemplating teaching the merged model in their classroom practice.
