Effects of P.E....Teachers What Do You Think?: Teachers Perception of Special Education Students after Attending Physical Education Class
by Costello, Nicole, M.A., Trinity Christian College, 2018, 26; 10977105
Abstract (Summary)

The aim of this project is to determine if physical education has a positive or negative impact on special education students in the following areas: attention, energy, participation, and mood. I hope to benefit the special education field and bring attention to how physical movement can improve the lives of children with disabilities. The data will be collected through observations. The teacher assistant will conduct the observations of the students within the classroom in four 15-minute increments totaling one-hour immediately following physical education class. A check list will be used to identify if the following areas observed either increased or decreased: attention, energy, participation and mood. The select students to be observed will have a letter sent home to parents to inform them of my research and to ask for consent for observations of their child. Students will remain anonymous, as pseudonyms will be used to identify them. Personal interviews will be conducted with the student’s teacher to discuss the results of the observations.
