EPER is a journal that stimulates and presents scholarly enquiry in the broad field of physical education, including sport and leisure issues and research. The Forum Editor’s pick from the current issue: EXPLORING SOCIAL JUSTICE PEDAGOGIES IN HEALTH AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION THROUGH CRITICAL INCIDENT TECHNIQUE METHODOLOGY by Rod Philpot, Wayne Smith, Göran Gerdin, Lena Larsson, Katarina Schenker, Susanne Linnér, Kjersti Mordal Moen, and Knut Westlie.
Joy I. Butler passed away in September 2019. Mikael Londos remembers her by reviewing her seminal work from 2016, Playing Fair: Using student-invented games to prevent bullying, teach democracy, and promote social justice (Human Kinetics). In spite of taking issues with some aspects of her Teaching Games for Understanding model, our reviewer is happy to recommend Butler’s book to all PETE and PE teachers alike.
