This article seeks to evaluate the expertise factors involved in the effective teaching of physical education. The authors found that effectiveness and experience contributed to expertise in education but also discovered that those two factors were difficult to transfer between differing age groups and activities. Lack of subject matter competence was the factor most likely to inhibit teacher expertise in physical education. The researchers also discovered that expertise can be explained behaviorally. An expert teacher is better equipped to control stimuli and is better suited to deal with student responses to them.
