HORTIGUELA ALCALA, David; FERNANDEZ-RIO, Javier  and  PEREZ PUEYO, Ángel. Effects of the methodological approach teaching soccer on the class climate: perceptions of students and teachers. CPD [online]. 2016, vol.16, n.1, pp.295-306. ISSN 1989-5879.

The goal of the present study was to assess the effects of two different methodological approaches on students and teachers' perceptions of the class climate. A total of 240 students (56.3% females, 53.7% males) of the 4 grades of Secondary Education and their teachers agreed to participate (13.34 ± 1.29 years). 112 experienced a Technical-Traditional teaching approach, and 128 an approach based on the Actitudinal Style, in both cases to teach football. The Questionnaire to Measure the Motivational Strategies used in Physical Education Classes was used prior and after the intervention to assess students' perceptions of the class climate. Semi-structured interviews were used to assess teachers' views. Results showed that the groups who had experienced the Technical-Traditional approach significantly increased their perception of an ego class climate. The groups that experienced the Actitudinal Style approach developed a significantly different task oriented class climate. Extra-curricular Football practice significantly influenced students' motivation only in the Technical-Traditional group. Grade level significantly influenced students' motivation only in the Actitudinal Style group. Finally, teachers' ideas reflect the class climate generated by them.

Keywords : motivation; physical education; ego orientation; task orientation.
