The last unit of the year for the grade 2/3 students is "How We Express Ourselves". In PE we feel that it is a perfect fit with what we are doing with the students and will hopefully have a very authentic final assessment task at the end of this unit.
It is an inquiry into:
1) the ways we discover and express ideas, feelings, nature, culture
2) beliefs and values
3) the ways in which we reflect on, extend and enjoy our creativity; our appreciation of aesthetics.
Related Concepts: interpretation, imagination
Central Idea: Personal perspectives influence how people communicate through the arts.
As this is a movement to music unit in PE, instead of having traditional dance be a part of what the students are required to do, they will work on creating movements that can be linked together and refined to create a sequence of aesthetic movements (Movement composition- pg 5 PSPE Scope and Sequence).
However, they will present their combined work behind a screen which shows only shadow movements. Teamwork, aesthetics, body form, rythym, and creativity will play a huge part in this unit and will be among the main assessment criteria being considered during this unit.
Pre-Assessment Task: We had the students watch three You Tube clips showing shadow movements behind a screen. I will upload this clips later this week and will also inlcude specific formative and summative assessment tasks that will be used as well.
