Part I (3 chapters) surveys the field, focusing on the evolution of physical education, and how research findings have previously been applied in the classroom. Part II (3 chapters) reports on diversity in school settings, including workplace conditions, gender issues, and students with disabilities in physical education. In Part III (4 chapters), ways to promote student learning are emphasized, including influence of teachers' values on student learning, frameworks for establishing curriculum goals and learner outcomes, effective instruction in physical education, and use of assessment to enrich learning. Part IV (4 chapters) provides models for promoting lifelong fitness and physical activity, using sport education to reform physical education, teaching personal and social responsibility through physical education, and integrating physical education with other school subjects. Part V (3 chapters) emphasizes learning to teach--an ongoing process.
The chapter dealing with students with disabilities provides historical and current perspectives on disability and adapted physical education Adapted physical education is a sub-discipline of physical education.
