Metzler, Michael W.; McCullick, Bryan A. – Journal of Teaching in Physical Education, 2008
The series of studies in this monograph examined the adoption of model-based instruction (MBI) as an innovative approach to teaching physical education. This innovation must be learned and used by preservice teachers, and then ultimately accepted by pupils in schools where student teachers plan for and implement MBI. Decisions by student teachers…
