Ward, Phillip; He, Yaohui; Wang, Xiaozan; Li, Weidong – Journal of Teaching in Physical Education, 2018
Purpose: Accurately measuring the content knowledge of teachers is critical to designing professional development to support their teaching. We examined the depth of specialized content knowledge (SCK), defined in terms of instructional tasks reported by teachers and factors that could affect their SCK. Method: Content maps were used to evaluate…

Ward, Phillip; Tsuda, Emi; Dervent, Fatih; Devirlmez, Erhan – Journal of Teaching in Physical Education, 2018
Purpose: Little is known about how teachers acquire specialized content knowledge (SCK). We examine the hypothesis that SCK is not acquired from K-12 physical education and from extracurricular activities characterized by playing; instead, SCK must be explicitly taught to teachers. Method: Students were enrolled in either basic physical activity…

Ward, Phillip; Ayvazo, Shiri – Journal of Teaching in Physical Education, 2016
Pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) is a frequently used concept in the educational community. Its usage is so widespread it appears to function as a "lingua franca" across different subject areas and among researchers within a subject area. Critiques of PCK have suggested it may function at best as a heuristic and at worst as a…

Ward, Phillip; Graber, Kim C.; van der Mars, Hans – Journal of Teaching in Physical Education, 2015
Peer review is an important mechanism for advancing knowledge in a manner deemed as acceptable by the research community. It can also serve the function of providing guidance to an author(s) to improve the likelihood that manuscripts will be accepted in peer reviewed journals. There is, however, little assistance for new or existing reviewers of…
