Physical Education


Physical education teachers have long been concerned with issues relating to how to best teach sports and games to students. The ultimate goal of sport instruction is to enable students to enjoy participation and to play the game reasonably well so that they will have increased motivation to play and gain the benefits of participation. This monograph describes the efforts of a group of researchers to investigate issues relative to teaching and learning sport in a physical education setting. More specifically, the authors of this monograph investigate what students are likely to learn and not learn as a result of a skill approach, a tactical awareness approach, and a combined tactical and skill approach to teaching badminton.
