Scraton, Sheila – Sport, Education and Society, 2018

Mooney, Amanda; Hickey, Chris – Asia-Pacific Journal of Health, Sport and Physical Education, 2017

Venegas-García, Marcia – Journal of School Leadership, 2013
Literature in leadership studies is devoid of knowledge about the unique ways that Latina/Chicana educators engage as leaders, activists, and agents for change.

Ferry, Matthew; McCaughtry, Nate – Journal of Teaching in Physical Education, 2015
Throughout history there have been debates as to what content knowledge (CK) is of most value for physical education (PE).
