      Abstract: The aim of the present study was to investigate the implementation of the Laban Notation-based method for Teaching Dance (LANTD) in the teaching of traditional dance (TD). In particular, the study examines the impact of the LANTD method on students’ dance performance and intrinsic motivation. For that purpose, sixty-three (N=63) 5th and 6th-grade students (32 boys and 31 girls), aged 11-12 years (M = 11.76+0.62) were divided into the experimental group (EG) and the CG (CG). A quasi-experimental intervention study was used with pre and post-tests. Both groups were taught Greek TD for twelve consecutive physical education lessons. The EG was taught TD the LANTD method, while the CG was taught TD with the traditional reproductive method (mimetic approach). Students’ dance performance was assessed with the Dance Performance Assessment Instrument whereas their intrinsic motivation with the Intrinsic Motivation Inventory in its Greek version. For data analysis, repeated-measures ANOVAs were utilized. Results revealed that the EG compared with the CG demonstrated significantly higher improvement in dance performance (F(1,61) = 6.20, p<.05, η2 = .10), interest/enjoyment (F(1,61) = 22.37, p < .001, η2 = .27) and effort/importance (F(1,61) = 8.51, p<.05, η2 = .12). In addition, students of the EG and improved their perceived competence. It can be argued that the LANTD method of teaching TD was more effective than the traditional method at improving dance performance and promoting intrinsic motivation. However, more research is required to provide further evidence of the effectiveness of the LANTD method in the teaching practice of TD.

      Abstract: The PETTLEP motor imagery method is a widely used approach in the process of improving the performance of sport activities. In comparison to more traditional imagery protocols, PETTLEP-based imagery provides a more detailed learning experience. Consisting of many domains that are helpful in achieving better results by applying processes such as physical factors, environmental details, task and time factors, learning and perspective moments, the PETTLEP method is an advanced approach recommended by many studies which confirm its effectiveness. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of the PETTLEP imagery method in training sessions involving young female rhythmic gymnasts (RGs) on the performance advancement of selected jump techniques in Rhythmic Gymnastics (RG). Forty-nine female RG novices aged 6 to 8.99 and thirty-one aged 9 to 10.99 were involved in this study and divided into two subgroups (training with and without the PETTLEP method). The mutual training methods were hour-long training sessions twice per week, with a mandatory task of learning and improving the technique of the vertical jump with straight legs and with a turn, the “Cabriole” forward jump, and the “Scissors” leaps with a switch of the legs forward. Group two was the one following the PETTLEP method in the learning process. The quality of the jump techniques was evaluated by national and international RG judges according to a modified scale for assessment of the adoption of jump techniques in RG, adjusted according to the FIG Code of Points for RG. The data were analysed with a repeated measures ANOVA, effect size r, and Cohen’s d effect. The results of the analysis showed that both groups showed signs of improvement. There was no significant between-group difference in the effect size.

      Abstract: The subject matter of the paper is the lexical selection between Anglicisms and their Serbian equivalents in Serbian sports terminology. The paper aims to determine the current tendencies in the use of synonymous sports terms on a sample of students of sport and physical education. The measuring instrument was an online questionnaire, completed by 117 respondents. It consisted of 60 sets of sports terms, one Anglicism and one or two of its Serbian equivalents. The data were analyzed qualitatively, but the frequencies of use of the select terms were presented in percents. Working within the set hypotheses, and based on the morpho-syntactic structure of the Anglicisms, the number of lexemes of the Serbian equivalents, and the morpho-syntactic structure of the syntagms, it was determined that the morphologically simpler Anglicisms are more often selected as sports terms (for example golSER. – goalENG., servisSER. – serveENG., slajsSER. – sliceENG., sparingSER. – sparringENG., faulSER. – foulENG.), while those with a more complex structure were selected less frequently than polylexemic Serbian equivalents, often containing postmodification (igrač sa osnovne linijeSER. –baselinerENG., korak sa prednožnim pogrčenjemSER. – knee liftENG., trka sa preponamaSER. – steeplechaseENG., udarac kroz nogeSER. – tweenerENG., utrčavanje uz čeonu linijuSER. – baseline cutENG.).  The results of this study do not only have lexicographic implications. They are also relevant for the field of English for Specific Purposes (ESP), in terms of assessing the preferences of Serbian students of sport and physical education for either Anglicisms or their equivalents, thus indicating the current trends in the field of Serbian sports terminology as well. In addition, the results can also influence General English (GE) language classes meant specifically for students of sport and physical education, as well as the sports terminology used in everyday teaching practices at various faculties of sport and physical education.

      Abstract: When discussing tourism nowadays, one word should be added as a supplement - ‘development’. What seems to be even more important is the term ‘sustainability’. In the sense of sport tourism and sport development, we could consider sport camps and their role in sustainable (tourism) development. The aim of this paper is to point out the importance of establishing sport camps in the sense of sustainable (tourism) development and to educate all participants (children and young people at first) on how to act in the most responsible way. There is not much research related to sport camps and their role in sustainable (tourism) development – generally speaking they are connected with younger generations and the school age, and the idea is to establish sport camps for those who are young enough and want to learn how to behave in a responsible way through sport, games, etc. Sport tourism should fill the gap between development and responsibility; on the other hand, sustainability and responsible behaviour of all participants should be an imperative. Sport camps could be good basis for a better understanding of sustainable (tourism) development. The aim of this study is to provide a review on the connection between youth sport camps and sustainability through education of all the participants.

      Abstract: The purpose of news reports is to relate facts and information; however, in the press coverage of the games of the Serbian national football team the media stance on why and how the games were lost or won is very much present, thus placing the locus of control on internal or external axes. The aim of the paper is to examine if cognitive bias (locus of control, self-serving bias, fundamental attribution error) is present in the interpretation of sport outcomes in the public discourse and if so, whether it is reflected in a sample of the sports audience as well. A multimethod approach was used to analyze interpretive styles and different types of cognitive biases in the interpretation of the national football team's victories and losses in the sports press and among the sports audience during the World Cup in Qatar 2022. The authors conducted mixed method research, combining qualitative (critical discourse analysis) and quantitative methods (a survey conducted on 161 participants) reflecting linguistic and psychological theoretical frameworks. In the first phase, we identified linguistic means that shape interpretative tendencies in sports media. Elements of cognitive biases are recognized – self-serving bias, internal attribution and high affective involvement in the interpretation of victories, while defensive mechanisms through defensive attribution, externalization, distancing and passivization of the national team appear in the interpretation of losses. The survey revealed that male respondents are more prone to internalization when interpreting victories than female respondents, while older respondents are more prone to internalization when interpreting defeats.
