Course Description

This class offers students instruction in lifetime activities and fulfills 0.25 of the  P.E. requirement for high school graduation. Individual, dual, and team sports activities are included, with the emphasis on activities offering lifelong participation opportunities.

Participation Skills and Techniques is designed to develop competency in up to five different activities. Competency involves the ability to apply the basic skills, strategies, and rules using standardized guidelines or rubrics.

01.00 Standard 1 (Participation Skills and Techniques)

On the Intermountain Live site, you see 4 different links: "Eat Well," "Move Well," "Feel Well," and "Be Well." Click on any of these links and explore the website. Once in these different links if you scroll down you will see a link "Videos" these are some funny mini videos. Take some time to watch a few or all of these videos. You'll see funny and true ideas about physical activity.

01.01 Fitness Testing (Participation Skills and Techniques)

One of the best motivations for staying active is measuring your progress in the activity. The more you play tennis, the better you become at it, and the "easier" it is. This is the same idea with any physical activity. It is good to get a baseline before you start setting fitness goals. To get your baseline, you will need to do a fitness test. Please read the link "Fitness Testing" below to learn more about fitness testing. Once you have read the article, continue to the assignment "Fitness Testing" and complete it.

01.02 Intro to Fitness (Participation Skills and Techniques)

Some students love P.E., and some students don't. What is really important is to use your P.E. class to find activities that you enjoy doing. If you can find activities you enjoy doing, it is more likely that you will keep doing those activities, and that will help you stay physically fit throughout your life. Watch the video to help you answer the questions in the assignment, you can pause it while you answer some of the questions. It is also important to set goals when you are working to improve your physical fitness, but goal setting can also be destructive. It is important to understand what goals are realistic for you, and what is a healthy way to achieve your goals. Watch the video S.M.A.R.T. goals to complete the assignment. Make sure you are using a computer that allows you to access YouTube.

Stress Relief Any physical exercise helps reduce the hormones associated with stress in your body. Any enjoyable activity helps reduce your feelings of stress. Put those together, and an enjoyable physical activity gives you a double dose of stress relief! How Skills Learned in Sports Help in 'Real Life' Slamming a hockey puck into a goal, or performing a 'pas de chat' on pointe, may not have much practical application in other areas of your life, but many of the basic aspects of sports or other physical activities do!

Here are some attributes you can learn from sports that will help you in all your other endeavors:

teamwork, dedication, patience, cooperation, goal-setting, following the rules, accepting criticism, pushing your limits, self-assessment, sharing credit, self-discipline, coming back from defeat.... I bet you can think of more.

On the other hand It's up to you, your fellow participants, and your instructor or coach to make sure you focus on these positive qualities. The focus of your physical activities should be having fun, improving yourself, and encouraging others. If you get too focused on having to be the best, or winning at any cost, many of the benefits slip away.  

Once you have watched and read all of the links, continue to the assignment "01.03s."

01.03 Individual and Team Activities (Participation Skills and Techniques)

When choosing a sport to participate in, it is important to think about whether you want to participate in a team sport, an individual sport or maybe you would like to do both. Hopscotch is an example of an individual sport, while kickball is an example of a team sport.

To get a better idea of what types of sports/activities are team sports, and which ones are individual activities, click on the "Team Sports" and "Individual Activities" links to get a better idea. In the assignment you will be asked to describe the CRITICAL CUES that are associated with that exercise.

What are critical cues for movement skills? The critical cues are the specific directions you give or get to make sure that you perform the movement/exercise correctly--the criteria by which your teacher or coach might evaluate whether you are performing the skill or activity correctly. Examples of a few critical cues in different activities:

  • In archery: As you prepare to release an arrow, the fingers of your left hand should be relaxed and open, not clenched tightly around the bow.
  • In horseback riding: Your heels should be down, stirrups on the ball of your foot, toes pointing ahead or slightly out, knees bent.
  • For push-ups: Your back should be straight, your toes, the balls of your feet and the palms of your hands on the floor, with your hands about the same width apart as your shoulders
  • To begin demi-plie in first position in ballet: Stand straight and in alignment, heels together and legs turned out to a 180 degree angle

Of course, these are just brief examples--there are lots more considerations for each of these movements--but you get the point. After reading the Links continue to the assignment Individual and Team Activities.

teacher-scored 30 points possible 60 minutes

This assignment should be completed by WEEK 3 of this class

You will need to submit an instructional video demonstrating one of the three exercises shown in the article “Easy Exercises for Teens,” located in lesson 01.04. These THREE exercises can include one of the following: SIT BACKS, CHAIR SQUATS, or BUTTERFLY BREATHS.

If you are unable to make a video, you can use a powerpoint to create a presentation USING pictures of YOURSELF demonstrating the basics skills (Critical Cues) for the exercise you have chosen. (There needs to be as many pictures as there are CRTICAL CUES for each exercise.) For instance for a Sit Back Powerpoint there are 7 cues, so you will need 7 pictures depicting each CUE. You can find these CUES in Lesson 01.04 in the link, Easy Exercises for Teens.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE VIDEO:

*There are three exercises you can choose from: (You only need to demonstrate one exercise. Do NOT do all three in one Video!)

Sit Backs

Chair Squats

Butterfly Breath

 

*Your video needs to be AT LEAST ONE minute long and NO longer than TWO minutes. If you would rather take pictures and use a video editor program to make a video/powerpoint to create your video, you can, BUT you must have a MINIMUM of 4-7 pictures. *YOU Must be the star of your video, (meaning the video has to be of YOU performing the skill or exercise!) So you might need to get a friend to do the filming. You will need to explain the Critical Cues and how to perform the exercise in the video, and demonstrate the correct way to perfrom the exercise.

 

*Assume that you are making this video for another student who has never tried the exercise you are going to demonstrate.

 

*You CANNOT use the same video for any other PE Skills and Techniques assignment, including both quarters.

OBSERVATION QUESTIONS: After you have created your video, watch the video and critique yourself, bearing in mind the correct way to perform this exercise. Answer the following questions. MAKE SURE YOUR ANSWERS ARE IN COMPLETE SENTENCES OR PARAGRAPHS. Please put all answers in bold or UPPER CASE.

****************************************

01.05 Observation questions for Video 01.05

2. According to the website explaining the exercises, what are the critical cues for the exercise you chose?

3. What did you see in the video that you were doing well?

4. What did you see in the video that you could improve on?

5. What did you see yourself doing that you didn't realize until you watched the video?

6. Name and date:

****************************************

You can choose between

"YouTube" - web based option

"Photobucket" - image hosting and video hosting website

"UPLOAD your video to your GOOGLE drive"to host your video assignments.

a. Explain and give examples of movement and developmental concepts, i.e., the sequential nature of change, the uniqueness in the rates of physiological development, the nature of movement components, and the developmental stages of skill acquisition.

b. Explain and apply biomechanical principles related to stability of the center of gravity, the production and application of force, and safe methods of lifting and carrying heavy objects.

c. Demonstrate a knowledge of concepts regarding the physiology of warming up and cooling down, the structure and function of the human body, the influence of individual differences in activity settings, and unsafe exercises.

d. Explain the social and psychological aspects of sport, i.e., goal setting, stress reduction, self-assessment, self-image, group interaction and cooperation, empathy, and participation according to rules.

Objective 2: Apply movement concepts to the learning and development of skills.

a. Analyze movement performance through a variety of means such as rubrics, self and peer assessment, video and computer analyses, and teacher feedback.

b. Design personal practice sessions according to individual needs.

02.01 Movement (Participation Skills and Techniques)

Movement: Movement is the key to physical activity. Our muscles, bones, and joints work together whenever we move, even if it is a small movement. At a young age we practice getting control of our movements, such as when we learn to hold our heads up as a baby, learn to crawl, learn to walk, learn to hold a fork, etc. It is important to understand how our muscles, bones, and joints work, and it is more important to keep them healthy. *CLICK on the first link, "Bones, Muscles and Joints," to find out how important our muscles, and bones, and joints are and how they work together. Be sure to click on ALL the pages. You need to know how many bones we have, what makes them hard, how many muscles we have, what connects them, what kind of joints we have and what their names are.

*CLICK on the second link, "Strength Training," to learn more about the importance of strength training and the safe way to do it. Make sure you know what type of activity and exercise strength training includes. Make sure you click on each page of the article.

Warm Up, Cool Down, and Stretching: To keep our muscles, bones, and joints healthy, it is so important to warm up before beginning any activity, and cool down after any activity. Read the article know know the amount of time suggested to warm up. Our muscles love to be stretched, even though it doesn't feel that way sometimes, but it is critical to stretch correctly to avoid injury. *CLICK the third link, "Stretching," for instruction on warming up, cooling down, and stretching. Again, make sure you click on each page of the article to find the information needed to answer the questions on the quiz.

02.02 Biomechanics, Performance and Safety (Participation Skills and Techniques)

"Biomechanics" is the application of mechanical knowledge (physics) to living things and how they move. In this class, you will be considering the biomechanical principles related to movement, sports performance, and safe exercising and lifting.

Read the material in the required links listed below. Yes, there will be a test. ;)

Math and physics may not be on your mind when you are dancing, running, or playing soccer, but your body and movement (as well as any ball or sports equipment you use) are all bound by the laws of physics. Physics affects ALL sports and movements.

Gravity keeps you on the ground most of the time, and brings down even a home run ball... eventually. Momentum makes it harder for you to speed up, slow down, or turn quickly. The combination of speed and weight create the force of a tackle. That golf club, bat or racquet you are using is a lever (for that matter, your arms and legs are levers). Air resistance makes it harder to throw a basketball a longer distance than a baseball.

We could go on and on. Many of the performance improvements in sports over the last hundred years have come from people figuring out how to use biomechanics to their advantage.

One of the most important concepts to understand is 'center of gravity' (also sometimes called 'center of mass', though it isn't quite the same). If you take physics, you will learn a more technical definition. For our purposes, you might think of it as the middle of your weight. If someone could stick a pin through your exact center of gravity, you would be balanced around that point. However, your center of gravity doesn't stay in one place - it shifts as you change position.

For example, if you are squatting down, your center of gravity will be much lower than if you are leaping to try to spike a volleyball. Your center of gravity is related to your balance. When your center of gravity is low - as when you take a low, wide stance with your knees bent and your feet apart - you are less likely to lose your balance and fall.

When your center of gravity is high - think of dancers with their arms stretched high over their heads - you are more likely to lose your balance or fall. Downhill skiers and snowboarders don't bend their knees and crouch low in their turns because it looks cool - they are keeping their center of gravity low to avoid falling (also to reduce wind resistance). Keeping your center of gravity low and your knees bent also lets you access more power for tackles, sprints, or jumps. Your center of gravity is also related to safety when lifting weights - either the kind you lift for building muscle, or the everyday lifting you do when you move things around the house or on a job site.

When you are about to pick something up, you want a low center of gravity - for two reasons; first so you won't be as likely to lose your balance and fall with the thing you are lifting, and second, so you can use the power of your legs to do most of the lifting. There are some things that are just too heavy to lift safely, and you need to use common sense when lifting to avoid injury. When you do lift something, bear in mind the suggestions for safe lifting on the website in the link below. Remember to read through all the Required Websites, they will help you with the Test!

02.03 Aerobic and Anaerobic Exercise (Participation Skills and Techniques)

Staying healthy includes exercise and eating healthy. It is important to understand what kinds of results you will get from different types of exercise. For example, do you want to burn fat, or do you want to build muscle? Use the link to read the differences between aerobic and anaerobic exercise. Make sure you can identify the difference between "Aerobic Exercise"(or more often called a CARDIO workout) and "Anaerobic Exercise." Read the following articles to learn how food affects your health and well-being.

In the article "Tip and Resources" pay close attention to the "Tips to help you" at the end of the article, these "Tips" will help you in your next assignment. Read the article titled "Why Is Physical Activity Important?" This article will explain the benefits from physical activity.

02.04 Development Stages and Learning Physical Activities (Participation Skills and Techniques)

Tapdance, football and swift-water kayaking are very different activities, but the process of learning them, or any other activity, can be described in similar steps. One way of classifying these steps is

The Developmental Stages of Skill Acquisition. They are listed below:

  1. Novice (beginner) - you are just starting to learn the basic rules and guidelines; everything is new to you
  2. Advanced beginner - you know the rules, and you can usually perform the basic skills, but you still have to think about it
  3. Competent - you've got the basic skills down, but you are still polishing the more advanced or difficult skills
  4. Proficient - you're good at the whole range of skills involved in your activity, and you can 'be your own coach' some of the time and begin to plan strategy
  5. Expert - you've become so good at your activity that the skills all seem natural, intuitive; you don't have to think about 'how' to accomplish it, and you can analyze problems, plan tactics and strategies, or create new approaches, skills, and tactics

Individual and Age-level Differences We all know that human beings grow and change from birth onwards. A six-month-old baby may be ready to learn to crawl, but not to dribble a basketball! As we go through the years of 'growing up', we change from being weak, uncoordinated, small, and unable to communicate to being bigger, stronger, more coordinated and able to speak and understand each other. At each age or stage of development, appropriate activities help us get stronger, more coordinated and more confident. Inappropriate activities may cause injuries to our bodies or our confidence. Moreover, we each develop at our own rate. Some babies walk at nine months; some babies don't walk until much later. Some six-year-olds are ready to learn to swim like fish; others need to splash in the shallow end and learn the 'jellyfish float.' Even as teenagers, when we may have reached our adult height, there are big differences between individuals' skill levels. What causes these differences? Partly it is genetic, past experience, physical fitness, or motivation. There is no doubt that some kids are born with the mental and physical talent to pick up certain skills more quickly and easily than most of us. However, good instruction, coaching, and practice (hundreds to thousands of hours over many years) are what create great athletes in any sport or activity. In the long run, the person who has the dedication to keep working at it will surpass most of the more talented individuals. As you participate in physical activities, be realistic and patient with yourself AND others. Bottom line: it takes time to develop new skills, and it takes more time for some people than for others. First Things First Recognize that when you are learning a sport or activity, you will need to learn and practice some basic skills before you can do the more advanced things. Often, the basic stuff seems boring or oversimplified, and you want to get on with the more exciting things. Spending time to learn the basics will pay off. If you learn incorrect form to begin with, it can take years to correct those bad habits. If you try moves you aren't ready for, you may be injured or just get frustrated. A good instructor will be able to break down complex skills into 'bite-size' components you can learn now and then put together successfully later. Read the article on the difference between Skill, Technique, and Ability below.
