Student Learning in Physical Education, Second Edition, provides the latest research on physical education curriculum, teaching, and teacher education and shows physical educators how to apply this knowledge to their day-to-day practices.
Nationally and internationally recognized teacher educators and physical education scholars have thoroughly revised and updated this new edition for today's physical education programs. The expanded and comprehensive references, featuring more than 1,000 bibliographic entries, have also been updated and provide a springboard to further research.

In all, this new edition expands the content over the previous edition by 50 percent while still concisely summarizing the research.
Student Learning in Physical Education, Second Edition, retains the strengths from the first edition, as well. It helps physical education supervisors and curriculum specialists evaluate curriculum alternatives, guide professional development planning, and advocate effectively for quality physical education.
