Journal of Teaching in Physical Education, v19 n1 p2-21 Oct 1999
Surveyed high school physical educators regarding required physical education programs, examining hidden curriculum about gender equity and culture. Team sports dominated the instructional units. Teachers had problems involving all students in coeducational activities. Female teachers were more apt to teach outside their socially accepted area of activity than were males. Curricula perpetuated socially constructed views of gender and physical activity. (SM)
