Description of Idea
This activity requires the physical education teacher to work with a classroom teacher as the student should be asked to write this in the classroom or as a homework assignment. This one is presented as a fairly general assessment. Feel free to make yours more detailed or focused. For example, ask them how they would use dribbling skills to get open for their last shot to win the game. Use your creativity!
It is best to offer this after the students have been taught the basic skills of basketball.
* Ask students to use proper grammar and spelling.
* Ask that students use basketball specific vocabulary that they have learned from class or that they know from outside experiences.
* Ask them to write a certain number of words (e.g. 250, etc.)
Have them type the assignment so it is more of a homework assignment.
Work with the classroom teacher to come up with a writing skills grading rubric. In other words, ask the classroom teacher what writing skills should be included in the assessment.
