Volume 11 – Concepts for school sport in Europe: activity, sport and health [in German only]
This dissertation theses three typical concepts for school sport in Europe. Health education from Finland, movement education from the Netherlands and sport education from England. It shows by which criteria the national concepts are characterized and to which extend these concepts have been adopted by the other countries respectively. As a German example the rules and curricula of Northrhine-Westfalia for school sport are analysed. When comparing these three concepts of school-bases PE it becomes obvious that despite partly lots of different cultural contexts and didactical aims, they have not only a common aim (active style of living) and but dispose also of equivalent elements (positive attitude towards physical acitivity, cognitive foundation, variations of motor skills). On the basis of these equivalents finally a European basis curriculum for school sports has been constructed, which integrates in its structure the criteria of a moving, health and sports education, without neglecting the respective national pecularities.
