Ecological task analysis: an approach to teaching physical education

Ecological task analysis: an approach to teaching physical education

Journal of Physical Education, Recreation and Dance 64(9): 54-61

Ecological task analysis (ETA) is an alternative to traditional approaches to teaching physical education. It is designed to provide strategies for individualizing instruction, to provide students with choices, to enhance decision making, to increase teacher observation, and to foster discovery. It provides a framework for the processes of assessment and instruction which differs from teacher-directed methods of instruction.
