The article looks at the development of physical education teaching methods to encourage individual creativity. It is stated that education systems in the United States operate with values that encourage conformity among students. Focusing on creativity in movement in physical education could generate a positive response from students. A study is described in which physical education teachers included creative movement and improvisation in their lesson plans. Implications of the study for practice in physical education are discussed.
