About UnLock Research
Professor Lawrence F. Locke, a leader in U.S. sport pedagogy, developed the UnLock Research website as a way to help teachers and scholars become better informed about the many good things going on in sport pedagogy. He also wanted to connect them with the various aspects of doing, reading, understanding, and interpreting research. Now a professor emeritus of education and physical education at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Locke has graciously allowed us to continue the legacy of his UnLock Research materials.
SHAPE America now offers these monthly translated research articles to help you in your career. Many thanks to Nicolette Smith-Suchon, doctoral student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, for translating articles for the 2023-2024 year.
