A Physical Education Dilemma: Team Sports or Physical Fitness.
Gilliam, G. McKenzie; And Others
Physical Educator, v45 n2 p69-73 Spr 1988
A study of 56 fifth graders found the traditional physical education approach (game techniques and fundamentals) was ineffective in improving scores on a health-related physical fitness test. Modification of the same sport (basketball) with conditioning exercises to improve cardiorespiratory and musculoskeletal function, produced improvement in three of four test items. (IAH)
