Archery videos

Grade 10’s, see the below Archery “How To” videos for some valuable tips.  The instructor is Nu Sensei and his descriptions of technique are broken down well for beginners. Note, he stresses to NEVER draw and release a string without an arrow in it. It is called Dry Firing and is very bad for the bow.

You have two more classes left to practice. Skills assessment runs Monday. November 27th

Volleyball Sport Education unit begins – grade 10’s

Rationale for the unit: Volleyball Sport Education Model

Sport Education is an instructional model developed for the enhancement of learning the concepts of how to play a sport and how to coordinate and manage the sport experience by assuming different roles on a team.

Sport Education gives students a chance to value fair play, respect the decision of teammates & officials and appreciate the spirit of competition.

Sport Education puts students in positions of responsibility and makes them aware that the success in their roles has a direct relationship to the success of their team/group (and of their own individual learning).

As such, we are going to use this Sport Education Model to help further our learning of (and demonstrating) leadership skills in the PE classroom.

Please see your grade 10 page on this blog for more information.
