To see if students are learning the key components (i.e, cues) of basic motor skills.

Description of Idea

There are children at other schools who do not have a physical education program. They have not learned any skills to be good at sports, or gymnastics or dance. We would like you to help them by making a videotape. On your videotape we would like you to teach three skills you have learned about in your physical education program. Each of you will teach one of the skills. You can plan them together. We have equipment for you if you need it and also poster board and markers. You can start working on your videotape today so you can actually make the videotape next class.

Scoring Rubric:


Level 1: Novice

The children say they chose not to make a videotape because they haven't learned any sports skills in PE class. or Children make a video but the skills they pick are not taught in the curriculum and show no understanding of the critical components and they are demonstrated inappropriately.

Level 2: Basic

The children make the videotape and a minumum of 3 critical components for one of the 3 skills are clearly and correctly explained and demonstrated.or One critical component is clearly and correctly explained and demonstrated for all 3 skills.

Level 3: Proficient

The children make the videotape and a minimum of 3 critical components for 2 of the three skills are clearly and correctly explained and demonstrated. The other one is either incomplete or not explained (demonstrated) at all. orTwo critical components are clearly and correctly explained and demonstrated for all three skills.

Level 4: Distinguished

The children make the videotape and at least three critical components for each of the three skills are clearly and correctly explained and demonstrated.
