Actively participate in all aspects of the program. We will be active in the Classroom, Outdoors and the Gym. We will begin each class with a dynamic warm-up (movement activity) games of low organization, Dynamic Warm-up, etc.. We will then be actively learning and applying skills in practice, fitness and game situations.
At the start of each unit/class the students are given a Learning Goal (ex. We are learning to throw and catch a frisbee for distance and accuracy). Then they apply their student voice to our drills/games and success criteria (what they want me to evaluate. For example, moving, communicating, ready position, etc.). Mr. Moses also provides on going feedback during the class and provides the students an opportunity to explain that feedback via Showbie on their iPad.
