“Promoting School-Aged Children’s Physical Literacy in Schools: A Brief Review"

Brooke Doherty 1, , Joonyoung Lee 2*, Jean Keller 2, Tao Zhang 2

Abstract

Physical literacy has received attention globally, but the definition and concept of physical literacy remains ambiguous in both research and practice. This obscurity may impede implementing the development of physical literacy among school-aged children. Therefore, the major purpose of this brief review was to examine the definitions, assessments, and benefits of physical literacy in order to promote school-aged children’s physical literacy in educational settings as well as to continue the dialogue for deepening related research and best practice. Using a narrative review approach, physical literacy is defined and its interactions with physical education are clarified. School physical education teachers and practitioners should understand the appropriate assessment of physical literacy in educational settings in order to promote school-aged children’s physical literacy.

Keywords: Physical education; physical activity; physical literacy; children; education
