Physical Education


For a number of years some Junior High School students have avoided taking part in physical education programs offered by the school partly because of a lack of a textbook, or a guide on the subject, the lack of interest by pupils, and by being able to substitute other courses for physical education.

This deficiency in knowledge, interest and being able to substitute other courses for physical education has resulted in the formulation of bad attitudes regarding physical education.

The purpose of this study is to provide a guide that will serve as a source of reference for boys enrolled in physical education classes at Booker T. Washington Junior High School. This guide is to be used by the students who experience physical education at the Booker T. Washington School.

This study is limited to the study of Physical Education in the Booker T. Washington Junior High School in Marlin, Texas. A town with a population of approximately 10,000 which is located on the Brazos River in North Central Texas. Marlin is the county seat of Falls County, and the chief occupation or industry is agriculture.
