ABSTRACT
The article examines the issue of discipline in school physical education classes in the U.S. The researchers collected data to describe how rules, routines and expectations for students entering physical education programs at 11 high schools were established, to describe the nature and frequency of disciplinary actions, to determine each teacher's perception of discipline and how such perception affected the program. The subjects for the study were part of a larger, year long study of high school physical education. Six teachers taught in urban and five teachers taught in suburban schools. Data were collected in several ways. First, lessons at the beginning of the first and second semester were observed and coded for rules, routines and expectations, and field notes were taken.
