Artifact: Basics of Effective Instruction In P.E. Lab D Lesson Plan

Date: Fall 2011

Reflection: Lab D was the last opportunity to teach in Basics of Effective Instruction In P.E. I taught Just Dance which is a game for the Wii. For my lesson, I broke down two different songs dance moves from the game and made it easy for anyone to learn. I came up with different cues that can help someone learn each individual dance move. I also provided multiple demonstrations for the students to be able to observe the actual movement. My artifact shows that I am able to teach skills by using the following cues, so that the students may perform them correctly.

Element: 4.3- Provide effective instructional feedback for skill acquisition, student learning, and motivation.

Artifact: Basics of Effective Instruction In P.E. Lab D Feedback Analysis Form

Date: Fall 2011

Reflection: For Lab D, I was required to teach dance moves from a game called Just Dance. My lesson was broken up into two songs which has a number of different dance moves that go along with it. After I gave my demonstrations for each dance move, the students were given a chance to practice them with a partner. At this time, I was able to walk around and give students feedback. It is very important that a physical educator has the opportunity to give the students proper feedback in order to help them improve their skills.
