In our summer 2006 issue, we ran a comprehensive overview of how postmodernism has degraded composition on our campuses.

Barr, Sherrie – Research in Dance Education, 2009
The technique class can be an amalgam of frustration and joy, cautious imitation and mindless replication, being right and being wrong.

The reasons for such…

Klapp, Stuart T.; Jagacinski, Richard J. – Psychological Bulletin, 2011
We argue that 4 fundamental gestalt phenomena in perception apply to the control of motor action. First, a motor gestalt, like a perceptual gestalt, is holistic in the sense that it is processed as a single unit. This notion is consistent with reaction time results indicating that all gestures for a brief unit of action must be programmed prior to…

Grineski, Steven – Journal of Physical Education, Recreation and Dance, 1988
Planned physical education experiences should be an integral part of the preschool or kindergarten curriculum to: foster normal motor development, take advantage of children's readiness to develop and practice motor skills, fulfill children's need and desire for movement, and develop fundamental motor patterns.

Petrella, Ricardo – European Vocational Training Journal, 1994
The global economy movement has four snares: the human resource taking precedence over the human being; a mindset of "the more skills, the better"; competitiveness that subjects people and labor to the imperatives of technology; and the dislocation caused by the emphasis on knowledge as the fundamental resource.

Werner, Peter; Almond, Len – Journal of Physical Education, Recreation and Dance, 1989
A conceptual framework for developing track and field programs in public schools is related. The framework consists of three phases of experiences: a fundamental movement phase, an athletic form phase which emphasizes action possibilities based on personal striving, and a final phase with a dual focus (health and sport skills/strategies).

Rosenberg, Barbara A. – Perceptual and Motor Skills, 1981
This report suggests that eye movements may be related in some fundamental manner to cognitive functioning. A metaphor is presented to show that quality of information processing need not exclusively reflect processes deep inside the brain but could also be affected by peripheral motor mechanisms. (Author/AL)

Corbin, Charles B. – Journal of Physical Education and Recreation, 1981
The higher order objectives of applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating must be accomplished to maintain an interest in physical education through the elementary grades. However, higher order objectives can only be attained after lower order prerequisites, the fundamentals of locomotor movement, and basic physical behaviors are met. (JN)

House, Jess E. – 1990
The uncertain context of educational practice caused by reform proposals has created a dilemma for architects of educational-administration programs.
