Physical Education


It was the purpose of this study to evaluate objectively the method of teaching men’s teams classes in physical education at Stockton College. A well organized instructional schedule consisting of elements from research versus the ‘free play’ method presents the problem in its varying aspects.

Both methods have been employed in the classes over a period of years and a committee has been organized to evolve a scientific approach as to content and teaching methods.
