This textbook and reference provides teachers with valuable insights for using research to improve their teaching. Putting Research to Work in Elementary Physical Education: Conversations in the Gym lets readers eavesdrop on a career-long conversation between a well-known scholar and a top-notch teacher who have a combined 75 years of professional physical education experience. Together they take a close look at 30 studies to help educators learn how to glean valuable information from research.

The book also demonstrates how stimulating and fruitful dialogue can be when the knowledge of researchers and practitioners is brought together around a single study. By discussing each study from both perspectives, the book sheds light on the common ground between researchers and physical educators and fosters mutual respect between the two. The varied perspectives can also provide a valuable springboard for thought-provoking discussions among colleagues in a school setting or in a graduate-level physical education course.

The book presents 12 guidelines that will help readers navigate through the difficult aspects of the typical research report, plus four annotated bibliographies to help readers explore topics that are more specific and more advanced. No other resource makes such a diverse group of studies so accessible. If educators are to put research to work in their own teaching methods and program designs, there’s no better place to start than with these straightforward “conversations in the gym.”
