Masterclass #5 2022
Mixed-ability grouped PE: pros and cons
Dr Shaun Wilkinson and Professor Dawn Penney from Edith Cowan University explore mixed-ability class groupings in physical education (PE).
While there is extensive international literature on different forms of ability grouping, particularly streaming and setting, mixed-ability grouping has attracted comparatively little research attention.
Shaun and Dawn’s research directs attention specifically to the complexities and potential inequities inherent in the enactment of mixed-ability grouping.
Their presentation will provide a rich insight into students’ varied experiences of mixed-ability grouping in PE and explore ways in which these experiences are mediated by particular constructions of ability, gendered discourses, school and subject cultures, and the wider policy context.
Shaun Wilkinson works in the Department of Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation, Northumbria University, UK. Shaun’s research focuses on ability groupings in physical education and policy translation in schools.
Dawn Penney is Research Professor in the School of Education at Edith Cowan University, Australia, and an Adjunct Professor in the Faculty of Education, Monash University. She is recognised internationally for her work in policy and curriculum development in Health and Physical Education.
