Articles Movement Education in Physical Education-A Definitional Effort
A philosophical approach was taken to the development of a framework for understanding the nature of movement observation as an aspect of teaching performance in physical education. The concepts and relationships that were revealed through a rigorous review of the literature on movement observation resulted in the conception of a theoretical framework. The framework conceived of movement observation as three independent subprocesses: attention, template formation, and motivation. The functional operation of these three subprocesses was proposed in terms of two developmental principles that operate in reciprocal fashion: that of simplicity and that of economy.
