1. Objective: Students to Learn A Fitness Activity Through Flag Football (High School- 9th Grade)

2. Learning Profile Level

2.1. Visual Learner - Jose

2.1.1. Strategy 1: Resource based instruction / Also good for ELLS This style is not common in Physical Education, but it can be used in sports. Allowing students time to research, watch video, and gather information on the specific sport that will be learned. Students can access the internet as a tool to help understand the details and visually see what the activity should look like. They can also research the rules and movements used for the activity. The ELL students can watch the videos and learn from seeing it, so they can grasp the concept of the activity. Technology: PPT/Computer/ipad/iphone/Labtop/Computer

2.1.2. Strategy 2: Demonstration The teacher will demonstrate with a selected 7 students and show the rest of the class how the activity is done. The selected student will team teach to their classmates by pairing up and learn collaboratively.

2.2. Kinesthetic Movement Learner - Nygel

2.2.1. Strategy 1: Group or Cooperative instruction Students are broken into groups for instruction. They will have a Group Leader that starts the activity with a practical example per the teachers instructions. The teacher will monitor by groups. This student learns best by movement, using their senses and by trial and error. Students in groups sometimes perform better in a less stressful environment & have a better chance at success. Working in a group can be beneficial to both the development of the skill but also development of social skills.

2.2.2. Strategy 2: Real Time / Competition After the skills are developed, real time instruction is necessary for a sport to be played. This strategy is would be used at the end of the unit to compile the lesson. Example: After the instructions and demonstrations have been done and trial and error have happened, the students will play a live game of flag football. Playing the game is important so that students can test the new skills in real time scenarios. This works best for this learner, because they learn best with the movement. They obtain the skill as they go along.

3. Interest Level

3.1. Strategy 1: Utilize Music Utilizing music in the activity is important because this engages the student immediately. This also triggers the body to move and relates to all individuals. The students will get excited to play the activity. At the beginning of class, the teacher can play the music and then stop the music to explain the objective and rules of the game. Selecting a genre that is appropriate, yet current with the students will capture their minds and establish a low pressure environment. They can play the activity while the music is on at a lower volume as long as they are properly participating. When the music stops, the activity will stop. This will attract other students to want to be a part of physical education class.

3.2. Creative/Musical/ Social - Quame

3.2.1. Strategy 2: Strategy Based This style is an advanced teaching style for High School students. The teacher will teach the sport strategy to students and students will then use lessons in game scenarios. This style can also allow for creativity in the classroom setting. The students will be broken up into teams for flag football. The students are required to develop plays to be used in game situations. They will utilize an app program on an ipad, ipod or iphone called "Flag Playmaker" to create plays for their team. Once the plays are developed, they will carry them out on the field and adjust as needed. Technology: ipad, iphone, ipod

3.3. Sportsman/Competitive - Ruben

3.3.1. Strategy 1: Leadership Role The classroom students will be selected into two teams. The teacher will select a captain for each team and list the 3 warm up activities each team will do. This athletic/competitive learner will be the captain or leader of the team for this activity. They are responsible for assembling the lines to warm up and start the stretching exercises prior to the game. This allows them to excel in leadership, be responsible and use their skills while learning the activity.

3.3.2. Strategy 2: Managing Equipment/Student Teaching The teacher will assign this student to be in charge of all the equipment handed out and returned for this activity. They are responsible for handing out the flags & footballs to each student and team. they will also set the example on how the equipment is properly worn. At the end of class they are in charge of collecting all items and putting them back where they belong and checking them off the list on the ipad. This shows value to the student and trust. They have an ownership in the class and are important to everyone's success, including their own. Technology: ipad, excel program

4. Readiness Level

4.1. DeAndre: High Level - Athletic Student

4.1.1. Strategy 1: Individual Individual teaching of Skills and Drills. The directions are given by the teacher to the class and the class then does the drill, thus developing the skill being taught. Drills are built upon until the skill can be done at a proficient level. This can be used to learn how to run a proper passing route that entails the student catching the football at a precise time and location. This student is assessed by his own performance scale because he might be more advanced athletically than other students. He will review plays from the iPad, iPod or iPhone to see which play he will perform next. Technology: iPhone/iPad/ iPhone

4.1.2. Strategy 2: Challenges: Giving students short term goals for the lesson can increase motivation. For example: "How many passes can you complete in a row?” As the students increases, he is more confident in himself. He also may practice these skills outside of class to improve.

4.2. Jordan: Entry level - Non social

4.2.1. Strategy 1: Proper Position Placement This student would benefit from being in a position for this activity that does not require the most athletic movement, but keeps them involved and still learning the skill. The teacher would place him as the "Center" that hikes the ball to the quarterback. He would learn the coordination of ball movement and motor skills in this position through cadence. This will also require him to be in the middle of his classmates and may possibly encourage him to socialize, but does not require a high level of movement. He will repeat the same skill each time.

4.2.2. Strategy 2: Non-Participants: Students who cannot participate (ie. injured or waiting) should stay engaged in the lesson by performing other roles such as an official, coach, scorekeeper, stat keeper, peer assessor, etc., or staying active in another task, like keeping the players hydrated, if able. The stats can be kept on a iPad/excel program and data entered. Technology: iPad, Excel program
