Health and Physical Education takes a socio-critical approach to this important learning area. It analyses issues on development and implementation of the 'new' HPE curriculum in Australia and New Zealand and introduces teacher education students to the implications for particular constructions of health and physical education curriculum. The book weaves together the voices of teachers and students, through 'postcards from the profession' in order to provide new insights into a range of curriculum and school-related issues. With its exploration into issues about marginalisation, inclusion, social justice and equity, the text aims to broaden the knowledge of students who will teach and enact the HPE curriculum in the future.
