Physical Education


The physical education program in Ball High School is concerned with education of boys and girls through vigorous motor activity. It attempts to influence and modify for the better, the behavior of pupils. It is particularly interested in providing opportunities for the wholesome expression of the natural interests and desires of the students, thereby contributing to the development of the organic system of the body and developing skills and fondness for activities that may serve as recreational interests during leisure time. Recently in the Ball High School among some students there seem to be a tendency to evade the activities of the physical education instructional program. However, there are some students who prefer physical education to other subjects. In view of these conditions, the writer has been encouraged to make this study.

The Problem

To determine the attitudes of students toward the physical education curriculum of Ball High School, Seguin, Texas.


To find out what problems influence attitudes toward the physical education curriculum.

The Need

The curriculum was broken down into four programs- Activities, Intramurals, Recreational, and Health Instruction. These four programs were analyzed on different scales which indicated the attitudes of the students. A questionnaire was devised from each program and given to the students in the study. The information was compiled and served as data for the study.
