Preinternship reflection #2

During preinternship I was lucky enough to get to do some teaching in one of my minor subjects, phys. ed. I was able to teach four consecutive lessons in a physical education 20/30 class. It was a small class in comparison to other PE classes, such as Wellness 10 that had 33 students, as there were only 7 males and 6 females. The PE teacher said that they were going to start a unit on volleyball and that I could begin it with them.

To start the unit I did an activity called Bound Ball. I first learned about Bound Ball through Brian Lewis of Growing Young Movers (GYM) when he asked HOPE members to participate in a game that he was going to describe and record. I took part in the activity and instantly loved it. I was able to transfer my volleyball skills and the game was able to last long since the ball is allowed to bounce. You can see the video below!

I thought that playing this game would be a good way to start the unit as it is a differentiated approach to playing volleyball. Having no net and allowing the ball to bounce between hits meant that every student could participate and be active no matter their skill level. The students needed time to get used to letting the ball bounce, but by the end of the lesson everyone got the hang of it and were actively participating! I was able to monitor the game and give advice to students on how to improve skills such as bumping and setting.
