In level 1 Physical Education we have core skills, these basically assess team work, self management and social responsibility using Hellisons social responsibility model. The students have been working on a weekly self reflection form for homework but this week I thought i'd try something a bit different!
I filmed the students in a practical class, they had to organise an aerobic warmup, stretch, skill warm-up, and then divide in to even teams and play a game. I had already chosen a modified version of lacrosse for them to play and put the gear on the field - the rest was up to them. Even though the boys knew they were being filmed some of them didn't make much of an effort to follow the social responsibility ethos!!
After the lesson I briefly edited the film down to about 10 minutes, including warm up, game, pack up and uploaded it to google drive. I then made a form for the boys to fill in - it included questions about who was stretching and who wasn't, who was taking leadership and who was doing their own thing. On google forms I used check boxes for most of the responses and this presented the students with a list of all the names in the class, all they had to do was watch the video and tick the names of students who were socially responsible and who weren't! The new forms feature that allows you to copy questions was a real time saver, as I only had to copy and paste the names from kamar once - I can also use a modified version of the form in the future for any class feedback.
I then shared the video with the boys with a class mailing list, then shared the form in the same way with instructions and how to fill it in.
Once the homework has been completed google forms will give me a graphical representation of the data so I can share this with the boys and hopefully initiate a meaningful discussion about why they chose different students for different behaviours. It will also put the students under pressure to look at their own behaviour in a team based setting, the advantage of completing this for homework is that it can be anonymous and will not be influenced by peer pressure. I'll let you know how it goes next week, i've already had a couple of responses already!!!
