This week, the group teach focused on invasion games. Jenny, Zoe, and Vivian did a wonderful job in breaking down the fundamental skills and movement, which allowed us to work on the basic skills necessary to play invasion games, such as running, dodging, and working on strategizing as a team. We gradually added one skill on top of the other and were given enough time to really improve our skills. They did a great job keeping in mind the concept of physical literacy and how these basic skills are necessary to develop the ability to understand, apply, and analyze other forms of movement, and demonstrate these movements confidently and competently across other health-related physical activities.
I was in Jenny’s group for discussion, and she did a great job summarizing the concept of Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU). It’s important to expose students to different ways of utilizing basic fundamental skills within various multi activities, to give them the opportunity to succeed in their own way.
Great job, ladies!
