Physical Education 1.2- Anatomy, Biomechanics and Physiology

The second unit of the year was in my opinion the toughest assessment students will do in L1 PED. Students had to apply knowledge of Anatomy, Biomechanics and Physiology to a practical task. In this case, they had to apply it to a Basketball free-throw shot. They had to break it down in to 3 sections and explain what movement was being applied to the shot in that particular phase. The 3 phases were Preparation, Execution and Follow-Through. As shown below:


In the classroom, students would compare their technique with a proper free-throw shot. Then, once in a practical environment students would try and apply this knowledge to their shot, ultimately trying to improve their overall technique. Students who were engaged during theory classes and learnt how to apply biomechanical knowledge to their free-throw shot ended up with a better overall technique by the end of the term. Check out some of the students work on the left hand side bar.

Physical Education 1.5- Interpersonal Skills

The first unit of the year is demonstrating Interpersonal Skills in a practical environment. Interpersonal skills are essential to helping the functioning of a group. Examples of Interpersonal skills are: Effective Communication, Cooperation, Supporting and Encouraging Others, Negotiation, Giving and Receiving Feedback, Including Others, and Problem Solving.


In a practical environment students chose to demonstrate specific interpersonal skills depending on the demands of the activity. Different activities required different interpersonal skills which enable student to demonstrate a wide range of them. As a teacher I recorded what interpersonal skills were demonstrated by students. Students were assessed on how well they demonstrated specific interpersonal skills and how effective they were to the functioning of the group. 

In the classroom, students reflected on how they demonstrated certain interpersonal skills. They had to explain how they demonstrated the interpersonal skill and how it had a positive/negative impact on the functioning of their group. Examples of these reflections can be viewed by clicking on the side bar blogs.
