CITE Cohort – Week 2 – Net/Wall Lesson Plan (Revised)

Clarissa Guevara, Rylan Rogers, Amanda Santos & Terence Wong

EDCP 320: Group Teach Lesson Plan

Wall & Net Games: Grade 5- Volleyball

Aims & Objectives:

To build skills on:

  • Learning the ready position
  • Practice the skill of setting a volleyball
  • Gain the ability to gage force adjustment proper for bumping a volleyball
  • Practice the proper technique for serving

PLO’s

  • B1: demonstrate preparation (ready position), movement and follow through phases of a selected activity
  • B2: demonstrate proper technique to send an object at varying distances in predictable settings
  • B3: demonstrate proper technique to receive an object while adjusting to varying speeds and different levels

Equipment: Volleyballs

Safety Issues: Projector, benches, backpacks

Principles of Learning: Rotation Stations

Assessment & Evaluation: Based on effort, participation and behavior which is given through oral feedback, rubric provided at the end of the document

Sequence of Lesson:

  1. Warm-up – 5 minutes led by Rylan
  • Modeling of ready position and foot movement, explanation of why this position
  • Rylan will perform demonstrations
  1. Activity –  Rotations Stations; 25 minutes led by Amanda
  • Station 1: Setting a volleyball with the wall/partner (Clarissa)
    • Teaching cue: medium body posture, elbows high, make diamond with hands using tips of fingers, bend knees, quick “catch” push the ball with fingers but do not fully catch the ball, extend arms and wrists
  • Station 2: Bumping a volleyball towards the wall/partner (Rylan)
    • Teaching cue: Medium Body posture, have straight arms and lock hands, bend knees, get under the ball, contact with ball with both arms at the same time, follow, call “mine”, follow through with knees and arms
  • Station 3: Serve underhand, partner catches and returns the ball in the same way (Terence)
    • Teaching cue: one foot in front of the other, hold ball in left hand with arm straight at waist level, shoulders and body lean slightly forward, other arm is straight making a fist, swing right arm in a pendulum motion, contact ball with bottom of fist which is flat, transfer weight from back foot to front foot
  • Station 4: Free Play –  get in a circle and have a volley using an umber system so each student touches the ball (Amanda)
  • NB: if students are not comfortable with skills from other stations this can be used as extra practice time
  • Teaching cue: same as mention in Stations 1,2,3
  • Transitions: Terence will be the timekeeper and will blow the whistle every 5 mins and the students will be expected to shuffle in the ready positons to the next station in under 10 secs
  • There will be music playing for the duration the of activity on a low setting so the whistle can still be heard
  • Demonstrations will be given at each station by each leading TC
  1. Cool Down –  5 mins led by Terence
  • Stretching of the body with the main focus on muscles used in the skills practiced
  • Discussion of what was learned
  • Terence will demonstrate stretches and participate with class

Evaluation Strategies:

  • Each station has a specific skill that will be practiced and will be evaluated by the leading TC
  • The class will be notified before the activity and again at each station.
  • Leading TC’s will provide oral feedback for the students to implement

Physical, Cognitive & Active Development:

  • Physical: basic movements, ideas and concepts
  • Cognitive: confidence in skills, teamwork and communication
  • Active: Participating in the class
  • Affective: Become more confident with the fundamental skills of volleyball, to gain a sense of teamwork and likeness between students

Teaching Cues & Transitions between Activities:

  • Meet in center circle for large group instructions
  • Whistles will be used to get attention and as a signal for rotation from station to station, starting the activity, ending the activity and to gain the attention of the large group
  • Check for understanding by thumbs up/ thumbs down or asking questions
  • Feedback will be given through asking ‘why’ questions

Concern for Diverse Learners

  • Free play stations will serve as an extra practice station if some students are not comfortable with the skills they have just practiced
