Level 1: Recall Level 2: Skill/Concept

Level 3: Strategic Thinking Level 4: Extended Thinking

Explain how the lesson addresses each box you checked:

Students will be quizzed and asked to state what each letter of F.I.T.T. and S.M.A.R.T and define/explain
what each letter means. Students will also be asked to give an example of each.

4 Skill/Concept:
Students will have to maintain a daily journal of the things they did stay on track towards reaching their
Webb’s Depth of goal.
Knowledge Level
Strategic Thinking:
On a weekly basis, students will summarize their fitness journals and evaluate what they did that helped
them on their road toward achieving their goals. Students will also evaluate what they could have done

Extended Thinking:
Students will plan a fitness routine that they can follow in order to achieve their fitness goals. On a week to
week basis students will create modifications based on the things they felt that did and did not work for
them. Student will also modify any goals that they believe are too easy or too hard to achieve.

Build Strong Content Knowledge:

By constantly evaluating and adjusting goals using the SMART and FITT principle, students will get
repetitive review and practice in applying the principles and figuring what does and does not work.

Using technology and digital media strategically and capably:

Students will use online resources to create a fitness plan which will work best for their personal fitness
goals. Students will also be able to download applications that can help them keep track of exercise routines,

21st Century Communication:
Students will be given opportunities to share with other classmates what their goals are. Students will also
communicate with the instructor to make sure they are on the right track, sharing their progress, and what
can be modified to create the most efficient plan.
Students will be given time to meet with other classmates to share ideas, talk about what works best for
them, what does not work, and to give each other suggestions on how they can improve their plan.
Critical Thinking:
Students will think critically to create a long-term fitness goal that they want to achieve within the semester.
Along with creating a long-term goal, students must also come up with short-term goals which will act as
stepping stones towards their long-term goals. When evaluating their goals and current progress, students
will also think critically to make any modifications to their plan.
Students will use a variety of sources to create the most efficient fitness plan they can create specifically for
them. Students will be able to create a fitness plan using a variety of cardio, flexibility, and strength
exercises. Students will be allowed to choose from creating a plan that involves plyometric, calisthenics, or
a mix of both.
Lesson Delivery
Identify vocabulary and key terms that are important for students to know to understand the lesson:
 Strength
 Power
 Endurance
 Flexibility
 Cardiovascular
Vocabulary/Key  Calisthenics
Terms  Plyometrics
 Body Composition

8 Describe how you will adapt your lesson for the following learners:
 English Learners
-English learners will be offered translated information to key terms but will be expected to
create a fitness plan which they can turn in or visually demonstrate to the instructor. If words
cannot be used in explanation of workout routine, pictures can be included. If possible, English
learning students can be paired up with another student who can communicate with the English
learning student.

 Special Needs
-Students with special needs will be able to make goals which they believe are achievable. All
students will be allowed to work within their own capabilities. IF any students create goals
which are unattainable, they will be modified to the student’s needs/abilities.

 Accelerated (Gifted/Talented)
-Student who are advanced will need to adjust their goals to make them more challenging or
they will be assigned to help others in creating, modifying, and achieving their goals.

9 Describe at least TWO different types of formal or informal assessments you will use during your
Assessments lesson to check for student learning:

SAUSD Common Core Lesson Template (adapted)

Students will be asked to create daily journals which will be summarized and reflected upon each
Students will also communicate with the instructor and go over their goals, their fitness plan, and
make any adjustments necessary. Students will have to present their ideas using the FITT and
SMART principles and continue to update their progress.

10 Prior Knowledge, Context, and Motivation (How will you connect the beginning of the lesson
Lesson to what students already know and/or motivate them to learn about the topic?)

Instructor will talk about how different goals that they have set. They will talk about those goals
that were achieved and the goals that were not achieved. Instructors will then talk about what did
and did not work for them. Next, instructors will turn the focus to the students and ask if there
were anyone willing to share a goal that the achieved and one they did not achieve. Students will
be asked to share what led to the success or failure in achieving their goals. From there, instructors
can lead into talking about creating SMART goals.
