article description
The focus on student motivation is an ever evolving and interesting area within physical education. Although motivation can be important, teachers today face students who are less motivated, and often implement teaching approaches or instructional models that do not positively influence student motivation. A model of instruction that has been identified to potentially support and enhance students' motivational needs is sport education (SE). The purpose of this article is to help physical educators to understand student motivation and how the SE model can develop student motivation within physical education.
