ABSTRACT

 

The objectives of the study were: a) to offer empirical evidence to verify whether Sports Education is an autonomy-supporting pedagogical model; b) to analyse the possible differences of gender with respect to the perception of the six Sport Education features. A total of 68 secondary students participated (21men and 38 woman). An intervention programme was applied in accordance with the methodological guidelines established by Siedentop (1994). Data collection was conducted by questionnaire before and after the intervention programme. The results revealed a significant increase in autonomy-support, perceived competence, literacy and enthusiasm. Likewise, there was only a significant different in record keeping and festivity with respect to gender. The results are discussed underlining the importance of Sport Education as a means to improve autonomy-support and the students’ experience in their sport teaching-learning process in Physical Education.
