ABSTRACT Este artículo recoge parte de los resultados de una investigación más amplia relacionada con el estudio de los estereotipos de género vinculados con la actividad física y el deporte en los centros docentes. En el presente trabajo, se identifica, a partir de un análisis cualitativo, la percepción que poseen los escolares de Educación Primaria y Secundaria de los estereotipos más tradicionalmente relacionados con la actividad física y el deporte así como de sus manifestaciones en el entorno de la escuela, empleándose para ello el grupo de discusión como técnica de investigación. Entre los resultados obtenidos destacamos: la representación de que determinadas actividades físico-deportivas continúan siendo específicas de género; la percepción de que los chicos hacen más cantidad de actividad física fundamentalmente por cuestiones de mayor competencia motriz; la percepción de desigualdades de género en las clases de Educación Física principalmente en relación con los contenidos del programa que se imparte; y la mayor manifestación y consistencia de los estereotipos en las zonas rurales que en las zonas urbanas.

    ABSTRACT: This study analyzed Spanish teachers’ behavior and the transmission of gender stereotypes in physical education classes in secondary schools in Seville, southern Spain. We observed 48 physical education lessons given by four Spanish teachers (two men and two women). Descriptive codes, which were generated iteratively, were clustered, categorized, integrated, recoded, and re-categorized. They allowed us to identify five major themes related to the transmission of gender stereotypes of teachers: the channel of communication, use of demonstrations, task organization, disciplinary measures, and questions asked. We used a coding sheet as well as audio and video recordings to register the categories. The Mann–Whitney test produced significance levels lower than .05, resulting in the null hypothesis being rejected. Sexist behaviors were found in the channel of communication, the students chosen for demonstrations, task organization (the groupings), and in the monitoring of group discipline. However, we found no difference in task organization (material and space) or quantity of questions asked.

    ABSTRACT: This paper, within the TEON XXI research project, examines and describes best practices in Physical Education with gender perspective. We apply sociological doing gender theory for developing a criterion about how to build a new gender school culture, involving sociocultural, relational and individual levels in an ethnographic microanalysis. The adjustment between these practices and the school requirements where these take place are also interpretated. Four models of practices are investigated; the selection sampling is theoretical, applying a maximum variation strategy support in a mapping process and location by snowball of informant and key exampling. The whole process culminates with a selection, saving and analysis of illustrative cases. Concrete and contextualized indicators are used for an analytic interpretation, such as: effectiveness, transforming effect, sustainability, legitimacy and replicability. This fieldwork entails analyzing documentary sources, as well as participant observation and in-depth interviews with experts, through content analysis. The results enable to give examples to the teachers, but also provide criterions, models and indicators for teachers to reflect about quality and favorable practices considering certain contextual circumstances and specific needs.
