Abstract

This study was designed to evaluate the feelings, perceptions and progress in implementing the teaching games for understanding approach among four PE teachers. A one-year follow-up interview was used to investigate the effects of using the new approach on PE teachers who had participated in a workshop and teaching trial of basketball with 4 classes of 140 students. The results indicated that the advantages seemed to be related to the value for children and the disadvantages seemed to center around the problems for teachers. All teachers reported that they had changed their approach to games teaching and recognized the value of the approach for the children. However, the concern about how much skill technique was learned remained. Teachers noted the need for more information. Copyright © 2001 The Hong Kong Institute of Education.
