This chapter examines Physical Education (PE) teacher beliefs and efficacy and their relationship with teacher practice. We begin with a brief historical overview of topics followed by a discussion of the central theories supporting the literature on teachers’ belief systems and efficacy. Next we summarize the literature related to PE teachers’ beliefs and efficacy with particular attention to their relationship with teacher practice. The final section includes implications for evidence-based practice, future directions, and a summary of key findings.
