Chapter 1 Summary

After reading chapter one here are some of my repsonses to the Check Your Understanding section:

1.  The idea that teaching as a goal-oriented activity depends on the educator to strive for each individual or class goal based on different variations including age, size, and ability.  The main goal is to develop physically educated and active lifestyles for children of all variations rather then just the typical athletic type.  The curriculum is based on a set of state and national standards for each physical educator that needs to teach and establish certain goals in order to be successful.  The more results one would see from their work would usually make them set the bar even higher the next time around for constant improvement. 

4.  The process which a tecaher choose to choose their style of teaching can be crucial because it depends on many different variables.  This can depend on the teacher and their ultimate goal or the personality which can be shown in the work field.  This as well as the type of students can have a big factor on the style of teaching tey use and how they expect to relay the content that needs to be learned. The more creative or uniue one can be, the more positive and creative feedback they will see.  The style of teaching also depends on the different areas that need to be covered such as different areas of exercising and how to obtain multiple goals during one demonstartion.  It may be difficult to do this depending on time and accessibility and this is where the issue of choosing a right technique becomes very important. 

5.  The movement task-student response unit is extremely important because this will initiate the start of your class.  These tasks can be used as progressions in order to achieve the proper skills and technique to correctly teach the lesson.  An instructor should be able to see a future drill or idea based off their movement task activity.  The point of these activities is to warm the students up for their future drills or game situations but to also prepare them mentally for their next step.  The movement task-student response is crucial to make building blocks for the children to learn step by step what they need to accomplish but to also get their cognitive skills to match their motor skills.
