Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The purpose 0£ this paper is to review the relevant literature on the effects of motor activity programs on the development of the self-concept. The literature suggests that the pre-school and schoolage years are a critical period for the development of a positive self-concept. How a child feels about him or herself physically, is also a critical factor in the development of a positive self-concept. Research has demonstrated that the self-concept of individuals can be significantly effected through participation in motor activity programs which provide success experiences for the participants. The motor activity programs can be implemented, through modified skill oriented physical education programs, through classroom activity programs, or through individualized motor activity programs.
