Metcalfe, Sarah Nicola; Lindsey, Iain – European Physical Education Review, 2020
Gendered differences in participation in active lifestyles (encompassing sport, physical activity, and physical education) are well established, with young men typically participating in more activities than young women. This paper uses a theoretical approach inspired by Bourdieu's notions of habitus, field and capital to explore the 'how' and…

Liu, Jiling; Xiang, Ping; McBride, Ron E.; Chen, Han – European Physical Education Review, 2020
Self-regulated learning is critical to student academic success as well as healthy lifestyles. Although widely conducted among students from various disciplines, self-regulated learning research seems not to have paid much attention to preservice physical education teachers. Attempting to amend this literature gap as well as inform the current…

Caldeborg, Annica; Öhman, Marie – European Physical Education Review, 2020
Research within the field of intergenerational touch has shown that there is a tension between the need to use physical contact as an obvious pedagogical tool, and the no-touch discourse. Within this tension physical contact between physical education teachers and students has also been shown to be a gender/ed issue with heteronormative points of…

Ní Chróinín, Déirdre; Fletcher, Tim; Jess, Mike; Corr, Méabh – European Physical Education Review, 2020
While there may be some broad agreement about the purposes of primary physical education, there is dramatic variance in how these purposes are prioritised and enacted. Primary physical education consequently focusses on multiple, often competing, priorities. To gain a better understanding of this issue we review how different stakeholders view the…

Pennington, Colin G.; Curtner-Smith, Matthew D.; Wind, Stefanie A. – European Physical Education Review, 2020
Few studies have focused on the issues older physical education (PE) teachers encounter which may limit their effectiveness. The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of a PE teacher's apparent age on high school pupils' learning and perceptions of the teacher. Participants were 114 ninth, tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grade pupils.…

Tudor, Kate; Sarkar, Mustafa; Spray, Christopher M. – European Physical Education Review, 2020
Resilience refers to findings that some individuals have good outcomes despite exposure to stressors, and protective factors are defined as influences that alter a person's response to such stressors. Academic resilience research identifies factors that promote positive educational outcomes; however, no research to date investigates student…

Dudley, Dean; Burden, Raewyn – European Physical Education Review, 2020
An increased focus on standardized testing of students has had the unintended effect of eroding curriculum time allocated to physical education (PE). The empirical literature on increasing the proportion of total curriculum time allocated to PE was reviewed and a series of meta-analyses conducted to estimate the mean effect of doing so on student…

Backman, Erik; Nyberg, Gunn; Larsson, Håkan – European Physical Education Review, 2020
The purpose of this paper is to analyse and discuss physical education teacher education (PETE) students' conceptions of teaching and assessment of movement capability as a part of content knowledge in aquatics, dance and ice-skating at a university in Sweden. The theoretical perspective involves Shulman's concept of content knowledge, the further…

Wallace, Laura; Buchan, Duncan; Sculthorpe, Nicholas – European Physical Education Review, 2020
This study examined whether single-gender or mixed-gender PE lessons were more conducive to increasing the physical activity levels of girls. One hundred and twenty girls (12--15 years) wore a wGT3x+ActiGraph accelerometer while participating in basketball games. Time spent in low (LPA), moderate (MPA), vigorous (VPA), and moderate-to-vigorous…

Røset, Linda; Green, Ken; Thurston, Miranda – European Physical Education Review, 2020
In the past decade or more, improving young people's mental health has been identified as a priority for policy-makers in many countries, including Norway. Physical education, as a setting for physical activity, is increasingly viewed as having a potentially significant role to play in addressing mental health among the young. This paper reports…

Cale, Lorraine; Harris, Jo; Hooper, Oliver – European Physical Education Review, 2020
There are growing concerns over young people's mental health, the academic pressures they face, and the association between school-related stress and health. Given this, alongside the known benefits of physical activity for psychological health, the need for school-based interventions with a physical activity focus seems justified. This paper…

Hanrahan, Stephanie; Rynne, Steven; Beckman, Emma; Rossi, Tony – European Physical Education Review, 2019
In its contemporary form, sport for development has been positioned as an important part of strategic policy for a variety of governmental and sporting organisations. One area that has been targeted by governments and a variety of sporting partners has been the impact of sport on non-communicable diseases (NCDs, sometimes colloquially referred to…

Timken, Gay; McNamee, Jeff; Coste, Sarah – European Physical Education Review, 2019
School-based physical education (PE) is the most efficient and cost-effective means of increasing girls' physical activity. Therefore, this project used a health club (HC) approach to alter a high school PE experience for 17 grade nine girls (M age = 14.6 ± 0.49). As part of a larger mixed-methods study, this qualitative element gauged adolescent…

Merrem, Anne M.; Curtner-Smith, Matthew D. – European Physical Education Review, 2019
Studies of prospective physical education teachers' (PPETs') acculturation have been useful in terms of facilitating the development of effective physical education teacher education (PETE) programmes because they provide teacher education faculty with a description of incoming recruits' values and beliefs and an understanding of how these values…
