Teacher Directed Step in Time
I have blogged a few times over the past several weeks about my role as being more of a coach and facilitator during the student designed Athletics unit. The beauty of taking this instructional approach is that it gives the teacher loads of time to walk, listen, observe, and record. I really resisted the temptation to jump in too early and start directing instruction as the students, more often than not, were able to get their learning back on track via discussion with their team members. However, there were still a number of moments that I did have to step in. One of these moments was recorded on video by a teaching assistant. Two points of discussion in the video were safety and a reminder of how forces are applied in long jump. Have a peek at the video to follow this discussion.
