Description

With the onset of adolescence, participation rates in physical activity tend to decline. Many PE teachers have noticed that participation rates for girls drop off more rapidly than for boys. This is a serious concern, as participation in school PE programs has been shown to have a positive influence on people's involvement in physical activity later in life. Conversely, bad experiences at school can often be detrimental in shaping people's life-long attitudes to physical activity. This program examines some of the reasons why girls lose interest in physical education. We then focus on a number of strategies to help teachers tackle the problem.
