This article reports on a group of eight recent studies that focus on physical education curriculums and programs. The investigations were completed in connection with the doctoral research program at Teachers College, Columbia University. The intent of this review is to provoke interest in curriculum and program research by using selected studies to illustrate a variety of approaches that might be pursued in the areas of curriculum development, collaborative program development, program description, describing the development process, and program evaluation. Essential features of the research strategies employed in each study are presented and related issues are discussed. A limited taxonomy for these types of curriculum and program studies is proposed to facilitate the conceptualization of future studies.
