Tindall, Daniel; MacDonald, Whitney; Carroll, Edith; Moody, Brigitte – European Physical Education Review, 2015
The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of a 10-week adapted physical activity programme on the attitudes and perceptions of 64 Irish pre-service teachers (aged 19-25) towards teaching children and young people with physical, intellectual, and learning disabilities. Data were collected through written pre-programme expectations, weekly…

O'Leary, Nick; Wattison, Nicole; Edwards, Toni; Bryan, Kate – European Physical Education Review, 2015
Recognising that the theory-practice gap remains problematic in the preparation of physical education (PE) teachers, this study sought to explore three undergraduate students use of jigsaw learning teaching gymnastics during a secondary school placement. Specifically, the research attempted to identify those issues that arose using this learning…

Logan, Samuel W.; Robinson, Leah E.; Webster, E. Kipling; Rudisill, Mary E. – European Physical Education Review, 2015
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of two physical education (PE) instructional climates (mastery, performance) on the percentage of time students spent in a) moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) and b) management tasks during PE in 2nd-grade students. Forty-eight 2nd graders (mastery, n = 23; performance, n = 25)…

Young, Ann-Marie; MacPhail, Ann – European Physical Education Review, 2015
Research has shown that teachers can derive substantial benefits from the role of cooperating teacher (CT) and many experienced teachers have made positive changes to their teaching as a result, often engaging as co-learners. The aim of this paper is to examine the intricacies of the trajectory of CTs in terms of the development of their…

Harvey, Stephen; Cushion, Christopher; Sammon, Paul – European Physical Education Review, 2015
Game-centred approaches (GCAs) were designed for the effective integration of skills into contextualized situations. Despite a plethora of research, few studies explore the articulations between pre-service teachers' experiences, conceptual understanding, pedagogical practices, the wider cultural and political realities of teaching and their…

Watson, Amanda; Eliott, Jaklin; Mehta, Kaye – European Physical Education Review, 2015
Given the short-and long-term health implications associated with overweight and obesity plus the likelihood of overweight or obesity to continue into adulthood, addressing the causes of overweight and obesity in childhood is a significant public health concern. One underlying cause of overweight and obesity is insufficient physical activity. The…

Zhang, Tan; Chen, Ang; Chen, Senlin; Hong, Deockki; Loflin, Jerry; Ennis, Catherine – European Physical Education Review, 2014
In physical education, it has become necessary for children to learn kinesiological knowledge for understanding the benefits of physical activity and developing a physically active lifestyle. This study was conducted to determine the extent to which cognitive assignments about healthful living and fitness contributed to knowledge growth on…

Butler, Joy – European Physical Education Review, 2014
This paper explores the tacit expert knowledge and understanding about games curriculum and pedagogy of three men, Len Almond, David Bunker, and Rod Thorpe, credited as the founders of the Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) model. The model emerged from teacher practice in the late 1970s and was little theorized at the time, apart from a…

Arias-Estero, José; Castejón, Francisco – European Physical Education Review, 2014
The aim was to analyse the features concerning the applicational purpose and strategy of the most common instruments used to assess game tactics both in Physical Education (PE) and in extra-curricular sport contexts. The review focused on two instruments: the Game Performance Assessment Instrument (GPAI) and the Team Sport Assessment Procedure…

Nyberg, Gunn – European Physical Education Review, 2014
The aim of this paper is to explore and develop ways to describe what there is to know, from the perspective of the one who knows, when knowing how to carry out a complex movement. The paper will challenge the distinction between mental and physical skills, drawing on theories of tacit knowing (Polanyi, 1969), knowing how (Ryle, 1949) and…

Atencio, Matthew; Chow, Jia Yi; Tan, Wee Keat Clara; Lee, Chang Yi Miriam – European Physical Education Review, 2014
This paper describes several practical activities that reveal how complex and nonlinear pedagogies might underpin primary physical education and school sport lessons. These sample activities, involving track and field, tennis and netball components, are designed to incorporate states of stability and instability through the modification of task…

Chow, Jia Yi; Tan, Clara Wee Keat; Lee, Miriam Chang Yi; Button, Chris – European Physical Education Review, 2014
Advances in technology have created new opportunities for enhanced delivery of teaching to improve the acquisition of game skills in physical education (PE). The availability of a motion-tracking system (i.e. the A-Eye), which determines positional information of students in a practice context, might offer a suitable technology to support…
