History learning in junior high schools with utilization of the surrounding environment
In the scope of history learning, an approach is needed that strengthens students' understanding of historical values. There are so many values and benefits that can be gained from the environment as a source of learning in education, even almost all the themes of activities can be learned from the environment. However, it is necessary to have creativity and an innovative spirit from teachers to be able to take advantage of the environment as a learning resource. The environment is a rich and attractive learning resource for students. Any environment can be a fun place for students. If during class the students are introduced by the teacher about fossils, by utilizing the environment students will be able to gain more experience. In utilizing this environment, the teacher can bring activities that are usually carried out in the classroom into the open, in this case the environment. However, if the teacher tells the story in the classroom, the nuances that occur in the classroom will not be as natural as if the teacher invited students to take advantage of the environment.

A research on the physical education and sports teachers’ leisure attitude level: Adana sample
The aim of this study is to investigate the leisure time attitude levels of physical education and sports teachers working in Adana Province. The quantitative research design, one of the research designs, was used in the study. The universe of the study consists of physical education and sports teachers working in Adana. The sample of the study consists of 58 male 42 female 100 physical education and sports teachers who teach physical education and sports in the Adana region. Personal information form developed by the researcher, and “Leisure Attitude Scale” adapted into Turkish by Akgul and Gurbuz (2011) were used for data collection. In analyzing the data, Mann-Whitney U Test at 0.05 significance level, Kruskal Wallis Test, the Correlation at 0.01 significance level, and Regression analysis at 0.05 significance level were used. As a result of the study, it was determined that individuals who work as physical education and sports teachers in Adana Province have high leisure time attitudes. There is no difference in leisure time attitude levels according to gender, age groups, duration of teaching, the institution where they work, and the activities that individuals do outside of working hours. As mentioned in the attitude definitions, it can be said that especially gender and age variables do not constitute an obstacle to the formation of leisure time attitudes. As the lesson hours of the individuals' increase, their leisure behavioral attitude levels also increase. There is a strong positive relationship between the leisure attitude levels of physical education and sports teachers and their cognitive, affective, and behavioral attitude levels. The behavioral leisure attitude levels of physical education and sports teachers are effective at the level of 28.04% on the leisure time attitude levels. Therefore, by using the “mental contradiction theory”, the tendency of physical education and sports teachers to behave in a certain direction regarding the concept of leisure time may differ when the positive-negative attitude towards the concept of leisure time changes. Thus, levels of leisure time attitudes can be raised higher.

An investigation of the empathy levels of team athletes during the competition in terms of certain variables
The aim of the study is to investigate the empathy levels of team athletes during the competition in terms of some variables. In the study, the “empathy in sports environment” scale developed by Erkus and Yakupoglu (2011) was used to determine the empathy levels of team athletes during the competition. The universe of the research consists of the athletes attending the Faculty of Sport Sciences of Usak University in the 2020-21 academic year. The sample, on the other hand, consisted of 243 team athletes. In the study, it was determined that the empathy levels of the team athletes were at a good level. Again, according to various variables, a difference was found between general empathy, cognitive empathy, and emotional empathy levels. For the trainers to communicate more effectively with their athletes, it has been suggested to use creative drama techniques in their in-service training that they will participate with their athletes.
