Abstract

The effects of Physical Education Teacher Education program modifications upon selected characteristics identified with effective teaching were assessed utilizing the Teacher Work Sample (TWS). Data were collected from all student teacher candidates during the 2002 student teaching sessions. Based upon the 2002 data, interventions were made to a senior physical education methods class. Data were again collected during the 2004-2005 student teaching sessions. Comparisons were made between the student teaching sessions for the physical education teaching candidates and also compared to all teaching candidates for the same time periods. Results indicated significant gains were made by the physical education teaching candidates from the first student teaching session to the second student teaching session on four of the seven Teacher Work Sample elements. The results suggest that the designed interventions were effective in enhancing those teaching processes assessed on the TWS.?
