Effect of Instructional Format on Appropriate Time in Motor Skills, Heart Rate Intensity and Exercise Enjoyment of Students

This study examined the effects of three instructional fitness formats on student's appropriate motor time, heart rate intensity and exercise pleasure. The participants in this study consisted of 480 junior secondary school students. Three different instructional formats, including (1) traditional fitness model, (2) fitness-skill model, and (3) fitness-skill-music model, were used to test for significant difference between the three groups on the two variables. In comparing the various outcomes of the three teaching formats, there was little difference among them in terms of context level and learner involvement level of Academic Learning Time in Physical Education (ALTPE). There was no significant heart rate difference in participants in the three instructional formats. However, participants reported that they had greatest satisfaction when the instructional format was accompanied by music. The results of the present research indicated that more attention should be paid to the development of teaching formats, which not only attracted but also sustained the interest of young people leading to regular participation in exercise programs.
