The Journal of Teaching in Physical Education presents original, high quality research on teaching, curriculum, and teacher education in physical education from the leading experts in the field. The qualitative and quantitative research included in JTPE is based on classroom and laboratory studies, descriptive and survey studies, summary and review articles, as well as discussions of current trends in the field. JTPE is an ideal resource for in-service and pre-service teachers, teacher educators, and administrators who wish to enhance their understanding of how children learn in physical education.
Articles from recent issues of JTPE illustrate its commitment to the field by addressing such topics as standards, assessments, and accountability in physical education examined via a monograph on state level assessments; beliefs about gender appropriateness, ability, and competence in physical activity; and the development of pedagogical content knowledge.
JTPE is also available in digital format that offers the same authoritative content available in the print edition, but with the additional advantages of electronically formatted material, such as the ability to search journals in seconds, access to five years of back issues. In addition, the content of the online version JTPE is accessible before the print edition arrives by mail, and online subscribers receive each issue’s table of contents by e-mail when a new issue is published.
You are now able to view an online preview of JTPE. This service provides scholars and researchers with access to articles representing the most up-to-date scholarship in the field.
The Journal of Teaching in Physical Education is endorsed by the Curriculum and Instruction Academy of the National Association for Sport and Physical Education and the International Association for Physical Education in Higher Education.
