Languages of publication
Background. The authors got interested in the problem of the P.E. teacher’s role on various stages of the school education, particularly the ways of forming in pupils a proper attitude towards taking up physical activity in everyday life, also after leaving school. The approach is often defined as a permanent organization of emotional, motivational and incentive cognitive processes, associated with a given aspect of the individual’s world: in the case of this study it is motor activity. Material and methods. The research comprised 129 students of three colleges, namely: Wroclaw University, University School of Physical Education in Wroclaw and The Witelon University of Applied Sciences in Legnica, who as representatives of the selected age group, thanks to their retrospective look at the image of P.E. teacher from years of their compulsory education, may become sources in invaluable knowledge about the role of the teacher with reference to the forming of such attitudes towards taking the physical activity in their daily living. The diagnostic survey was used, i.e. a questionnaire designed by the authors. Results. Only Wroclaw University students had a negative image of their P.E. lessons, which resulted in lower physical activity. Students of the other two schools liked their P.E. lessons and indicated relax and pleasure as the main motives of taking up physical activities. Conclusions. The study confirmed the importance of the P.E. teacher for the future attitude towards physical activity.
