Kudos to Emily, Pamela and Sonia!
We learn so much from each other so thank you. I would like to say it was well planned and executed but, as we would all experience it, there are unexpected events that might happen. We will just have to keep our heads up and learn from them. I really liked how Steve asked our cohort on our opinion and how we can improve on it. It gives the students a chance to work together and collaborate with one and another.
I really liked the summary discussion in regards to how should we assess our students. I agree with majority of our class that we should not assign letter grades as it does not promote positive physical activity outside of class. We need to assess students through development. For example, if a student is level 1 at throwing and at the end of the year increases to a level 3, then the student should receive a positive feedback. I see it similar to reading level. A grade 5 student might not be at a grade 5 level of reading, but maybe they have improved from grade 2 to grade 4. I think that’s a great improvement and should be recognized as “pass”. As long as the student shows improvement and effort, we should respond with positive feedback.
I can’t wait for next class, hope the class will enjoy my team’s lesson!
