Structure of the thesis:annotation, introduction, 3 chapters, conclusions and recommendations, bibliography 255 sources, 193 pages, basic text 123 pages, 11 tables, 40 figures, 15 annexes. The obtained experimental results are published in 10 scientific papers.

Field of study: pedagogy. The purpose of the research consists in the elaboration and implementation of the model of application of the means specific to the game of handball at the level of the secondary school cycle, in the 7th grade, which leads to the increase of the efficiency of the physical education lesson and the achievement of the objectives of school physical education.

Research objectives: 1. Analysis of specialized literature regarding the organization of the physical education process in the secondary school cycle. 2. Analysis of teachers' and students' opinion regarding the introduction of handball equipment in outdoor physical education lessons. 3. Elaboration of the model for the implementation of the means from the game of handball in the outdoor physical education lessons in the 7th grade. 4. Experimental argumentation of the effectiveness of the outdoor physical education lesson in the gymnasium by applying handball tools.

Scientific novelty and originality: it consists in the development and implementation of the model of application of the means specific to the game of handball, which used in outdoor physical education lessons leads to an increase in the efficiency of the lesson through the formation of motor skills and the development of the physical qualities of secondary school students.

The current scientific problem solved consists in improving school planning by implementing handball tools at the secondary school level in order to increase the efficiency of outdoor physical education lessons.

The theoretical significance of the work indicates that by introducing the means from the game of handball, a high efficiency of the lesson was obtained, leading to the achievement of the objectives of physical education.

The applicative value of the work offers the possibility for physical education teachers to use handball tools in outdoor physical education lessons to make them more efficient. The obtained information can complete the theoretical and practical databases of the didactic process in physical education.

Implementation of scientific results. The research results were implemented in pre-university institutions in Romania and published in a series of national and international scientific conferences and symposia.
