Situated Game Teaching through Set Plays: A Curricular Model to Teaching Sports in Physical Education
Li, Weidong; Xie, Xiuye; Li, Huanyu
Journal of Teaching in Physical Education, v37 n4 p352-362 Oct 2018
Guided by Situated Learning theory, the purpose of this article is to propose an extension to existing game-centered curricular models, named Situated Game Teaching through Set Plays (SGTSP). This proposed model fills in the gaps in the literature on game-centered curricular models by theorizing the concept of game scenarios/match conditions in the coaching literature for physical education, utilizing Situated Learning theory as a theoretical framework to systematically develop a curricular model, and conceptualizing and operationalizing the stimulus-response selection and execution or if--then links decision-making process in teaching sports and games in physical education. This SGTSP model has a potential to advance the curricular development and provide an alternative approach to teach tactical decision making in sports and games in physical education. Future research shall examine the effectiveness of SGTSP curricular model on students' motivation, tactical decision making, technique development, and game performance. Features of this model and implications for future research will be discussed.
