Issue Date: 
Haslam, I. (1999). Thinking skills and thinking movers in physical education. In S. P. Loo (Ed.), Proceeds of the MERA-ERA Joint conference 1999: Educational Challenges in the New Millennium (pp. 50-55). Malacca, Malaysia.
The purpose of this paper is to discuss the theory and practice of the teaching of
thinking in physical education. Through a synthesis of research and practice in the field of
curriculum theory in physical education a paradigm for teaching thinking through physical
education will be explored. Reference will be made to the notion of levels of thinking in motor
skill development and to the similarity of schema theory and the variability of practice
hypothesis. This will then be linked to the teaching styles of Mosston and Ashworth (1994)
which will serve to illustrate the methodological integration of the thinking processes and
movement processes in physical education.
This paper was published in the 1999 Proceedings of the MERA-ERA Joint Conference held at Malacca, Malaysia from 1-3 December 1999
