Description of Idea

Students will practice manipulative skills while self-assessing and peer-assessing in the process.

-Break students into groups of 3-4 students.
-Students will video each other performing the skill using the Coach’s Eye App.
-Students will then use slow motion on the video to assess themselves and peers performing the skill.
-Once assessment is complete video is deleted.

Assessment Ideas:

I use assessments created by Pete Charette.
They can be purchased at Cap'n Pete's Power PE
Assessments can be checklists made to fit your criteria.
