Abstract
The purpose of this study was to investigate the underlying theories involved in the development of a curriculum regarding the importance of growth and development of adolescents and their ability to acquire motor skills. The findings of this investigation were applied in establishing evaluation techniques for the girls' physical education program at Menomonie Junior-Senlor High School. There were 600 girls evaluated in this study. Check lists were used in determining interest and attitudes of the student and for their choices of friends and fellow students with whom they like to work. Bookwalters' classification index on height -weight grouping was used and in the final tabulation of the results, a sociogram, scattergram and charts were used. This study was of great assistance in gaining insight into the particular group studied. The results focused attention in the areas needing motivation and guidance, the need for tralning of leadership, and the challenge to adapt a program to aid the individual to work towards her potential.
