Abstract


The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects caused by the methods of teaching and eye-hand coordination to kinesthetic outcomes of throwing and catching a ball. The population of this study was 149 third grade elementary school students in a village in East Jakarta. A sample of 80 students was chosen using random cluster sampling. Data was analyzed using analysis of variance (ANOVA) and the significance level is set at 0.05. The results showed that the kinesthetic of ball’s throw-catch by students who were taught with play teaching method is higher than the students who were taught with the guided teaching methods. There is an interaction between teaching methods, gender and hand eye coordination towards the kinesthetic outcomes of throwing and catching a ball. The kinesthetic result of ball’s throw-catch for male students who were taught with play teaching methods is higher than the male students who were taught with guided hand-eye-coordination teaching method. The kinesthetic result of ball’s throw-catch for female students who were taught with play teaching methods is higher than the female students who were taught with guided hand-eye-coordination teaching method. The kinesthetic result of ball’s throw-catch for male students with low hand-eye coordination taught with guided teaching method is higher than those who were taught with the play teaching method. The kinesthetic result of ball’s throw-catch for female students with low hand-eye coordination taught with the guided teaching method is higher than those taught with the play teaching method.
