Conclusion /

of Instruction

End of Lesson Discussion

Achievement of goals/objectives- thumbs up if all 3 complete,
thumb in middle is 2 complete, thumbs down if 1 of less
o Psychomotor- The students will be able to complete 2
passes during game play with their team.
o Cognitive- The students will be able to explain the
benefits of passing during game play.
o Affective- The students will be sensitive to the differences in

physical ability levels of other students.

Critical Thinking Questions:

o What difficulty did you have with passing, receiving,
cradling and scooping the ball?- discuss with your
o What difficulty did you have with the 2 pass requirement
during game play? How did it help?
o What are some examples of how you or your peers
demonstrated sensitivity to the differences in physical
ability levels of other students?

[Describe adapted input, output, time, level of difficulty, level of support and/or degree of participation,
as pertinent to your students.]

Decrease difficulty- no pass requirement, no time limit on holding

ball, larger/softer ball
Increase difficulty- increase pass requirement, decrease time

allowed to hold the ball

What was the impact of the lesson on student learning?
What went well and why?
Pre-made teams worked much better

SelfAssessment and

What did not go well and why:

Some students are too aggressive and out of control, therefore all my attention is on them to try to
control their behavior the entire period, which is unfair to the rest of the class.
What unexpected things happened and how did I respond?
Student threw a temper after numerous warnings when I had him sit out and lose points for the day
What will you do next time to improve the lesson?
Require everyone to pass/receive the ball before can score
Increased time with ball to 5 seconds to allows students to make better decisions
