Abstract

The purpose of this project is to see if creating a student-centered learning environment can help increase student motivation and engagement in a physical education class. Finding ways to help student increase their motivation and engagement towards physical education and physical activity is the overall main goal for this current project. Through the use of evidence-based instructional strategies and theoretical framework of the self-determination theory, lesson plans were created that involve instructional strategies that can help foster a student-centered learning environment in a ninth-grade physical education class. Findings can be used to develop skills and knowledge for physical education teachers.
