This essay is part of much more extensive research which intends to study the teacher’s thought and analyse the factors that affect his decisions when solving certain points of his teaching tasks, taking Physical Education as a main reference. The teacher’s implicit theories about education are in a group of aspects which condition his decisions. These theories are a bunch of personal beliefs which rule the teachers’ behaviour in front of a specific situation. This essay intends to get a closer approach to these theories and analyses them according to their presence and influence on the teachers’ thinking and their consequences on the teaching and learning process. This research follows a cross curricular pattern and tries to depict and interpret at the same time the group of factors that form these theories in the obligatory secondary stages.
