Abstract: The purpose of this study was to identify one child's personalized curriculum as it developed in response to the teacher's verbal behavior in a movement approach to games. It was the researcher's intent to answer the following questions: 1. What is a child's personalized curriculum as analyzed from his movement responses? 2. What is the progression of a child's movement responses within the personalized curriculum? The researcher video taped one subject for six consecutive lessons, two days a week, for a three-week period. The subject selected for this study was a 10-year old boy from a fifth grade at the Julius I. Foust Elementary School, Greensboro City Schools, Greensboro, North Carolina. The teacher selected was Knowledgeable and experienced in the teaching of games using the movement approach. A scheme was developed for the purpose of identifying the subject's movement responses.
