Curtner-Smith, Matthew; Sofo, Seidu
Sport, Education and Society, v9 n3 p347-377 2004
The purpose of the study described in this paper was to determine 15 American preservice teachers' (PTs) conceptions of the teaching-learning process while teaching Sport Education and Multi-activity units during an early field experience. Data were collected using the critical incident technique and a reflective questionnaire and analyzed by employing analytic induction and frequency counts. Results indicated that PTs generally found Sport Education more attractive due to its compatibility with their occupational socialization and its cultural and structural advantages.
