Supporting Vocabulary Acquisition in Physical Education Settings
Wickens, Corrine M.; Parker, Jenny
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v90 n5 p16-22 2019
Vocabulary is the basis for all content area learning, including physical education. This article presents several easily implemented vocabulary strategies that support content learning within the cognitive domain of physical education by reinforcing conceptual understanding and relationships. These strategies include: concept circles, list-group-label with concept maps, semantic feature analysis, vocabulary squares (Frayer Model), and word webs. The article will discuss how these strategies can be used within different aspects of lesson planning (e.g., activating prior knowledge or assessment). It will also describe how these strategies can be easily modified for age-group or unit focus. Following discussion of the different strategies, an overview chart is provided for easy reference of the tools and their overarching purpose.
