Pre-service and beginning teachers have to negotiate an unfamiliar and often challenging working environment, in both teaching spaces and staff spaces. Workplace Learning in Physical Education explores the workplace of teaching as a site of professional learning. Using stories and narratives from the experiences of pre-service and beginning teachers, the book takes a closer look at how professional knowledge is developed by investigating the notions of ‘professional’ and ‘workplace learning’ by drawing on data from a five year project. The book also critically examines the literature associated with, and the rhetoric that surrounds ‘the practicum’, ‘fieldwork’ ‘school experience’ and the ‘induction year’. The book is structured around five significant dimensions of workplace learning: Social tasks of teaching and learning to teach Performance, practice and praxis Identity, subjectivities and the profession/al Space and place for, and of, learning Micropolitics As well as identifying important implications for policy, practice and research methodology in physical education and teacher education, the book also shows how research can be a powerful medium for the communication of good practice. This is an important book for all students, pre-service and beginning teachers working in physical education, for academics researching teacher workspaces, and for anybody with an interest in the wider themes of teacher education, professional practice and professional learning in the workplace.

Socialization is a complex process which has a profound effect on how we experience teaching and learning. The study of teachers’ lives and careers through the lens of occupational socialization theory has a rich history in physical education. However, as the social and political climates surrounding education have changed, so have the experiences of teachers. This book pushes beyond traditional perspectives to explore alternative and innovative approaches to socialization. Written by a team of leading international physical education scholars, this is the first edited collection of scholarship on teacher socialization to be published in more than two decades. Divided into five parts, the book provides a review of current knowledge on teacher socialization in school settings, as well as suggestions for different approaches to understanding teacher socialization and recommendations for future directions for studying teachers’ lives and careers. A testament to what is known and what still needs to be learned about the lived experiences of physical educators, Teacher Socialization in Physical Education: New Perspectives provides valuable insights for all physical education students, teachers, and instructors.

The Female Tradition in Physical Education

The Female Tradition in Physical Education re-examines a key question in the history of modern education: why did the remarkably successful leaders of female physical education, who pioneered the development of the subject in late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century England, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, lose control in the years following the Second World War? Despite the later resurgence of second wave feminism they never regained a voice, with the result that male leadership was able to shift the curriculum in ways that neglected the needs and interests of girls and young women. Drawing on new sources and a range of historiographical approaches, and touching on related fields such as therapeutic exercise and dance, the book examines the development of physical education for girls in a number of countries to offer an alternative explanation to the dominant narrative of the ‘demise’ of the female tradition. Providing an important contextualization for the state of contemporary female physical education, this is fascinating reading for anybody with an interest in the development of sport and physical education, women’s and gender history, and physical culture more generally.

Die Bibel der Heutezeit. Willst du ein Haus oder ein Leben? Andy, Dag und Claire teilen die Sehnsüchte ihrer Eltern, der Babyboomer, nicht. Sicherheit ist ihnen egal. Denn das heraufdämmernde neue Jahrtausend verspricht nichts als Katastrophen. Überschuldung, Überbevölkerung, Klimaerwärmung, Komsumterror - vor diesem Hintergrund zählt nur noch eins: Frei zu sein und zu genießen. Die drei beschließen sich loszusagen, auf Karriere und Kaufkraft zu verzichten, um sich ins Rentneridyll Palm Springs zurückzuziehen, Gin Tonic zu trinken, Geschichten zu erzählen und auf den Sonnenaufgang zu warten. Als „Generation X“ 1991 in den Vereinigten Staaten erschien, waren Leute wie Andy, Dag und Claire ihre Haltung, die lässige Unverbindlichkeit, Patchworkkleidung, ihre Trink- und Schlafgewohnheiten noch Fiktion. Inzwischen gehören ihre Wiedergänger zum täglichen Straßenbild der Städte weltweit. Millennials und Xennials, Emos, Hipster, die Generation Y und Z. Ihr Denken und Fühlen zu verstehen, wäre ohne „Generation X“ nicht möglich.

Schon lange ist evident, dass die europäische Integration vor allem von den Eliten vorangetrieben wird. Dies ist die erste Untersuchung, die diesen Sachverhalt umfassend dokumentiert und erklärt. Anhand von Daten über europäische Wahlen und Volksabstimmungen, repräsentativen Surveys, Interviews, Dokumenten und Biografien werden u.a. gezeigt: - die Charakteristika und Entwicklung, Interessen und Privlegien der politischen und ökonomischen Eliten sowie der neuen „Eurokratie“ in Brüssel; - die Erwartungen und Wahrnehmungen der Bürger und der in vielen Teilen der EU weitverbreitete Skeptizismus; - die Strategien der Eliten, die Zustimmung der Bürger zu gewinnen. Zuletzt werden die historisch-intellektuellen Ideen von „Europa“ mit der Realität der Integration seit 1945 konfrontiert und Vorschläge zur Stärkung der sozialpolitischen und demokratischen Komponenten der EU entwickelt.
