Abstract:The behaviors of many college students have changed over the past 10 years. These behavioral changes include a rise in poor social skills, such as inappropriate actions and comments in social situations. It has become increasingly important for educators to incorporate proper behaviors and professional etiquette in their curricula for physical education teacher education (PETE) students, especially when preparing teacher candidates to teach students with disabilities. This article examines the attitudes and labels that may influence PETE students' behaviors, offers proper written and conversational etiquette for PETE students to use when interacting with people with disabilities, and suggests how to improve students' behavior overall.
