Systematic Observation Report
Evaluation Team
October 5th, 2015

1.) Overview
This is a systematic observation summary Sheldon Simas teaching
performance for the week of October 5th 2015. The two lessons that were
taught during the week were based on learning and using the skill of the
overhand throw. The prior skills and experience needed were the basic
exposure to the form of basic throwing the week before. Although, if a
student had missed the prior week, they surely would be able to participate
with full success. The equipment that was needed included 20 cones for
spatial arrangement, about 15 Hula Hoops and 30+ beanbags (not color
specific). There were approximately 15 3rd graders participating in the
duration of the lesson.

2.) Systematic Observation #1
The first systematic observation completed was a Teacher Feedback and
Questioning. Sheldon did a good job delivering quality explanations for
cues of the skill and performance techniques. Unfortunately, a lot of
feedback and questioning was spent on behavior and classroom
management. Therefore, the amount of time giving individual and group
skill development was overshadowed. Luckily, the skill development
related feedback and questioning was of good quality.

3.) Systematic Observation #2
The second systematic observation completed was a SoFit analysis of
lesson MVPA %. With a brief glance at the completed sheet you can see
Sheldons lesson contained 39% MVPA. This is not necessarily terrible,
but not quite ideal. Part of the issue, based on collaboration with my
other observations, was the amount of time spent correcting behavior
and management. Minimizing time spent in instruction is difficult if you
need to get a lesson adequately informed. The trick is to deliver some
information throughout the activity instead of in large chunks.

4.) Closure
As a whole, the week was a good one. Students enjoyed the activities and
improved their skills tremendously. From a more instructional
standpoint, improvements can be made in minimizing behavioral
management and increasing MVPA %.
