Critical pedagogy, physical education and urban schooling

by Katie Fitzpatrick | 31 October 2012
PAPERBACK
This book won the North American Sport Sociology Society's 2013 Outstanding Book Award. Critical Pedagogy, Physical Education and Urban Schooling is a critical ethnography of health, physical education and the schooling experiences of urban youth. The subjects of health and physical education are compulsory in most schools internationally, but many contemporary practices in these subjects reinforce rather than challenge the stereotypes that urban youth are only physically talented and, subsequently, uninterested in schooling achievement. This book questions those practices and instead suggests that, if taught in critical ways, these subjects offer a particularly cogent space of hope and achievement for urban youth. The use of critical ethnography enables an in-depth account of urban youth in the subjects of health and physical education at school. This book thus explores the complex potential for health and physical education as key sites of learning for marginalized urban youth, examining these disciplines as subjects that are both politically fraught and also spaces of hope.
