The purpose of this presentation is to describe a research study in which adults' memories of physical education in Grades K-4, Grades 5-8, and Grades 9-12 were examined. Adults wrote about their memories of physical education in each of these grade levels, and memories were coded according to primary themes, secondary themes, and context. A description of research methodology and findings will be provided. Researchers and physical education teacher educators will find this presentation salient.
