Be A Maker – Maker Plan

As a future a physical educator I decided on creating a target practice panel using a variety of sports ball. What I had in mind was to take a baseball, football and basketball later drawing a silhouette of the proper hand placement for each ball.

The next step would entail using a piece of tarp to draw out a pair of feet for the proper foot placement as well as a panel with a hole to be used as target practice and accuracy.

The ultimate goal is to be able to teach students the fundamentals of these sports by using proper hand/foot placement, hand and eye coordination as well as the proper techniques to gain accuracy.


Digital Storytelling K-12

As a future physical educator I would create a digital assignment where students would be able to illustrate their vision or philosphy of success in sports.

To clarify, the goal is for students, using still images and/or video clips, to demonstrate what their perception of success within sports is.  They can refer to commercials such as Nike or Gatorade or billboards.

The assignment is to have students reflect on their own concept of success and what their perspective is to reach that goal (the means to the end).  For example, success may be a runner helping a fellow athlete cross the finish line, even if it means losing the race.  It can also mean a watching a clip or clips of people waking up each day before school to practice their sport.
