ABSTRACT
This study was intended to provide a description of teaching and learning patterns seen in the lessons taught by experts and novices in Adapted Physical Education. Two experts who had won previous state teaching awards and served in leadership positions in state associations were filmed and their lessons were analyzed first to develop a systematic observation instrument specifically intended for adapted physical education lessons. After going through a literature-based protocol for using filmed lessons to develop instrumentation, the newly developed Adapted Physical Education Teacher Education (APETE) instrument was used to analyze lessons by the two experts and 11 novice teachers completing their senior year at a northeastern university. Conditional probabilities were generated with the use of the Behavioral Evaluation Taxonomy & Strategy (BEST) software (Sharpe & Koperwas, 1999) and the triad chains were used to complete a matrix on the experts' and novices teaching and learning patterns. Results support earlier findings showing more of an instructional focus of novices than those in research on lessons taught by novices in general physical education.
