Big Ideas/Unit Goals:

Students must be able to demonstrate the rotations, physical skills, and communication abilities that are required in a game of Volleyball. The students will also be
required to know all of the terms that go along with the volleyball unit.
Students will develop and write down individual goals for the unit and how they feel about their end results.
Students will work kindly with one another and encourage their fellow classmates, regardless of their abilities.

Unit Summary:

Th students will begin the Volleyball Unit by setting goals for themselves and writing it down in their journals. Throughout the Unit, the students will use this journal
to track their progress physically as well as mentally.
While setting goals and doing research is important in a Physical Education course, one of the main goals is for the students to understand, analyze, and engage in the
sport of Volleyball. In this Unit, the students will be learning how to play through hands on instruction as well as through lectures, videos, and role-play. The students
will also be required to acquire the knowledge of Volleyball terminology and ultimately, be able to play a game of Volleyball while the teacher observes. This requires
the students to work as a team and to encourage their teammates around them through social interaction, self-responsibility, and group dynamics.

Assessment Plan:

The most important way to assess in a Physical
Education class is physically. So for this assessment, I
would use a Game. I would show a video to the students
and then role-play the action (with an assistant) of how
to correctly pass the volleyball. After lecturing, I would
have the students pass the ball back and forth to see if
they understood.
Concept Map:
Last, I could use a Concept Map. A concept map would
consist of different terms such as Set, Bump, Spike. I
would be looking for the students to fill in the concepts
with things that relate to the word. For example, with the
word "Set" the things that I would be looking for them
to fill in would be: setter, right front, second touch.

Worksheet PowerPoint presentation to help the students understand the terminology.
The students will be provided a handout with all the volleyball terminology on it.
Exit Ticket There will then be a quick Vocabulary worksheet given (doesnt go towards grade) to help me assess the students
knowledge and to help me see the areas I need to go over gain.
Then, I will assign the students a project which required them to research the role of physical activity in the
prevention of a disease within small groups that they will present at the end of the Unit.
To leave the class for the day, the students will have to give me their Exit Ticket with the names of the people in
their groups.

The students will be provided a learning packet that has examples of rotations and positioning.
Response Log The majority of this class time will be spent on the courts and interacting with other classmates. I will walk around
the class and make sure the students are understanding the positions, rules, and moves and correcting them as I see I
need to. I will use Strategic Questioning to assess the students while observing and to make sure they understand the
Lesson for the day.
The students will then jot down a Response Log to a question that I ask at the end of class that would help me assess
their learning for the day.
The students will use a take home webercise to search up information about the game of volleyball.
