Timken, Gay; McNamee, Jeff; Coste, Sarah – European Physical Education Review, 2019
School-based physical education (PE) is the most efficient and cost-effective means of increasing girls' physical activity. Therefore, this project used a health club (HC) approach to alter a high school PE experience for 17 grade nine girls (M age = 14.6 ± 0.49). As part of a larger mixed-methods study, this qualitative element gauged adolescent…

Ceuppens, Stijn; Bollen, Laurens; Deprez, Johan; Dehaene, Wim; De Cock, Mieke – Physical Review Physics Education Research, 2019
We design, validate, and administer a 24-item test to study student understanding of linear functions in 1D kinematics [x(t)] and mathematics [y(x)] in the 9th grade. The items assess identification and comparison of initial position and velocity in 1D kinematics and of the y intercept and slope in mathematics using a graph or an algebraic…

Post-school employment outcomes for individuals with disabilities continue to be inadequate when compared to their peers without disabilities (Newman et al., 2011). One barrier to employment for individuals with disabilities is a lack of employment "soft skills" (Riesen, Morgan, Schutlz, & Kupferman, 2014), such as punctuality and…

Ramberg, Joacim; Låftman, Sara Brolin; Almquist, Ylva B; Modin, Bitte – Improving Schools, 2019

Truman, Sarah E. – Curriculum Inquiry, 2019
This paper considers how literacy and education more broadly reflect and reproduce world views and communicative practices rooted in the western epistemological conceptualization of what Sylvia Wynter calls "Man".

Lentillon-Kaestner, Vanessa; Roure, Cédric – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2019
Background: A student's choice to engage in a learning task is highly related to the student's environmental stimuli and his or her perception of interest. From this perspective, the construct of situational interest (SI) has been used to interpret students' motivation in task engagement. SI is assumed to be transitory, environmentally activated,…
