Abstract

This study determined the effect of a sound field amplification system on teacher movement in physical education (PE) settings. Two middle school PE teachers instructing coeducational PE classes were used as the subjects. This investigation used a multiple-baseline single-case design across subjects. The treatment (independent variable) was the teacher using a portable sound field amplification system. The results indicated consistency in the increase of teacher movement for all classes when amplified feedback was implemented, which suggests that the treatment was effective.Subscribe to TPE
