Abstract: The purpose of this study was to describe connections and disconnections of four classroom teachers' actual teaching of physical education with the experiences of their college methods course. The qualitative methodology used in this study generated data from three different sources: video- and audiotaped lessons, interviews, and a demographic questionnaire. All four teachers had taken and successfully completed a course in elementary physical education taught by the researcher, the focus of which was derived from the course text, Physical Education for Children: A Focus on the Teaching Process (Logsdon, Barrett, Ammons, Broer,Halverson, McGee, and Roberton, 1977).
