CALE, L. ... et al, 2011. An intervention to facilitate 'high quality' physical education - from gymnastics to athletics. Physical Education Matters, 6 (3), pp. 35 - 37
The summer edition of Research Matters included a short article on facilitating ‘high
quality’ physical education and ‘high quality’ gymnastics in a city school (see Cale et al., 2011). The article provided a summary of the first phase of a research project which
aimed to: i) facilitate high quality teaching and learning in physical education, and ii) identify key principles that contribute to high quality outcomes and which could be applied across the physical education curriculum. This article follows on and presents a summary of phase 2 of the research, which focused on athletics, as well as of the key findings and recommendations from the project overall.
