Goals of Achievement in Physical Exercise for Students of Fifth Grade through Interdisciplinary Programs
The aim of the research was the development of achievement goals in physical activity and exercise in fifth grade students through the implementation of interdisciplinary programs. The sample consisted of 97 pupils of two multiple office primary schools in a provincial city of Macedonia. The choice of schools was in random and in groups. We got the necessary permits and then the students were divided into experimental group and control groups. We also,Â selected the questionnaire to guide the ego and work (Task and Ego Orientation in Sport Questionnaire - TESQ) of Duda (1989). As the requirements, it was attempted all the cross cutting programs be realistic and targeted to physical activity and exercise. The operation lasted one school year and every week planned and executed two instructional approaches (two hours each). Each two-hour teaching approach consisted of one hour of physical education and one hour of Flexible zone. In order to control these cases we used at the beginning the One Way ANOVA and finally, the Repeated ANOVA on both subscales. The results showed that the interdisciplinary intervention programs shaped significantly positive ego orientation and to work orientation to children. It is believed that properly formed interdisciplinary programs can improve childrenâ€™s physical activity.
