Summary Issues and Controversies in Physical Education: Policy, Power, and Pedagogy edited by Seth Brown aims to help physical educators develop purposeful and practical connections between scholarly work and their own practice. Whether you're a future or current physical educator, this book will enhance your understanding of the major issues and controversies in the field of physical education and challenge you to think critically about the profession. The book is divided into three parts: policy, power, and pedagogy. In each part contributors relate their research (or areas of interest) to practical examples of teaching. The book is informed by a range of international perspectives on the issues and controversies in physical education and engages readers in a variety of theories, methodologies, methods and epistemologies regarding educational research. The intention is to encourage physical education teachers to critically analyse their daily practice and to reflect on what they observe, constantly thinking and challenging their assumptions about teaching.
