Student's Physcial Activity Preferences: Implications for the Design and Implementation of Physical Education Curriculum
LANGUAGE NOTE | Document text in English; abstract also in Chinese.
Using a survey research method this paper examines the concerns and needs of youngsters with respect to physical education and sport in their schools. Participants were (574) boys and girls in the Community Junior Schools. These students were asked among other things to rank order their most preferred activity. The results show that most of the students still prefer team sport over more individualized programs. This could be a function of developmental needs since students at this age seem to prefer team sport rather than more individualized activities. The results also show that the students are very enthusiastic about physical education, it is therefore, incumbent upon us as curriculum developers to introduce activities that have a carry over to adult years.
