Schinke, Robert J.; Middleton, Thierry; Petersen, Brennan; Kao, Sanfu; Lefebvre, Deborah; Habra, Bahaa – Quest, 2019
There are varied approaches that have been used in sport for development (SFD) projects. This article is focused on the move by sport and exercise psychology researchers toward community-based SFD projects where marginalized groups are centralized. The authors have chosen two of their projects to exemplify different approaches to SFD. An initial…

Garratt, Dean; Kumar, Simon – Quest, 2019
This article examines the complex but seldom articulated relationship of primary physical education, citizenship, and social justice. We argue that to conflate physical "activity" and sport with physical "education" in unacknowledged ways may serve to perpetuate the status quo. More significantly, the current emphasis on…

Knudson, Duane – Quest, 2019
The knowledge base of kinesiology can be compared to the construction of a fragmented, diffuse tower. Much of the lack of identity and progress of kinesiology as the leader in the study of human physical activity may result from inconsistent nomenclature. Several examples of improper and inconsistent use of kinesiology nomenclature are noted and…

Thomas, Jafra D.; Flay, Brian R.; Cardinal, Bradley J. – Quest, 2018
Readability studies routinely report that resources with physical activity-related content exceed the eighth-grade reading level (RL), the maximum recommended for health education resources. The objectives of this meta-analysis were to determine the extent that findings in the literature represented true differences and whether production sources…

Kretchmar, R. Scott – Quest, 2018
The article investigates several ways in which creating, entering, and playing games requires uniquely human levels of intelligence. It examines an element of our evolutionary heritage and the possibility that games (particularly in the form of sport) were among the first elements of culture. It describes sport as a "way of knowing," a…

Rhoades, Jesse Lee; Hopper, Timothy Frank – Quest, 2018
This article explores Complexity Theory and applications of nonlinear dynamics in physical education (PE). The authors of this article discuss Complexity Theory and its applications to students and student learning. Additionally, there will be discussion of how the networking learning process associated with socio-coordinated mimicry creates a…

Shaw, Janet M.; Johnson, Danielle D.; Nygaard, Ingrid E. – Quest, 2018
Many undergraduate students in kinesiology are interested in clinical careers and seek research opportunities for advanced study and unique learning experiences. This article describes a process of engaging undergraduate students in a multi-disciplinary, National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded program project investigating factors that may…

Guerrero, Michelle; Munroe-Chandler, Krista – Quest, 2018
Imagery research with children has been primarily examined within a structured physical activity context. However, researchers have begun to investigate children's imagery use in their active play (i.e., unstructured leisure-time physical activity). The objective of the present article was to develop a conceptual model of active play imagery--the…

Goh, Tan Leng – Quest, 2017
Sitting for extended periods of time is detrimental to children's physical health and may cause off-task behavior in the classroom. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of a classroom physical activity (PA) program, TAKE 10!®, on children's PA and on-task behavior. Participants in the program included 137 children from six classes…

Marttinen, Risto Harri Juhani; McLoughlin, Gabriella; Fredrick, Ray, III; Novak, Dario – Quest, 2017
The Common Core State Standards Initiative has placed an increased focus on mathematics and English language arts. A relationship between physical activity and academic achievement is evident, but research on integration of academic subjects with physical education is still unclear. This literature review examined databases for the years…

Stapleton, Drue T.; Taliaferro, Andrea R.; Bulger, Sean M. – Quest, 2017
Physical education programs in colleges/universities have been called on to provide students with opportunities to develop an appreciation for, and increase participation in, lifetime physical activity. Higher Education Physical Activity Programs (HEPAPs) have evolved over the past 100 years in response to changing societal and institutional…

Allan, Veronica; Turnnidge, Jennifer; Côté, Jean – Quest, 2017
The potential of physical activity and sport programs to promote positive youth development (PYD) is well-recognized among youth sport researchers and practitioners. More recently, physical literacy has gained traction among sport organizations as an important component of long-term athlete development. With conceptual roots in academic writing,…

Cardinal, Bradley J. – Quest, 2017
Physical education debuted in higher education in 1860 at Amherst College. The program, aimed at the general student body, thrived under the leadership of Edward Hitchcock, Jr., M.D. Similar programs were developed elsewhere. At its high point, an estimated 97% of colleges and universities required their students to partake in some form of…

Hopsicker, Peter M.; Hochstetler, Douglas – Quest, 2016
Massengale's "Trends Toward the Future of Physical Education" (1987) makes no reference to the existence of the philosophic inquiry of physical activity within higher education kinesiology programs--even though the sub-discipline had been formalized by academics in the early 1970s. In contrast, Massengale and Swanson's "The History…

Charles, John M.; Charles, P. Kelly – Quest, 2016
In the wake of multiple activity program eliminations and frequent downgrading of activity programs nationwide, the question to be addressed is how we can draw upon our interdisciplinary, intergenerational, and intercultural understandings of human movement to construct physical activity programs for the future that might withstand the test of…
