Beni, Fletcher, and Chróinín examined meaningfulness in PE and suggested five common threads: social interaction, fun, challenge, motor competence, and personally relevant information. Similarly, these threads have been described using the acronym P.R.A.I.S.E. PRAISE stands for Perceived competence, Relatedness, Autonomy, Individuality, Social support, and Enjoyment. This article will describe how to use the PRAISE acronym as a tool to help make physical education experiences meaningful and motivating for high school students.
