This file attached contains a short introduction to a basketball unit and the pre-assessment you can use for the foul shot. It’s a lesson that can begin your unit on basketball after explaining how to shoot and/or the critical elements to the dribble. The lesson has the following objectives: While using a basketball, to increase hand-eye coordination and fitness levels, the students will be able to utilize safety and class rules by accepting responsibility to follow all the rules during the entire class session. While moving in general and personal space, the students will be able to utilize aerobic fitness, muscular strength and endurance and flexibility by performing exercises during the predetermined fitness session for five full minutes only stopping twice. During a class period on basketball, the students will be able to demonstrate hand-eye coordination, gross motor skills and aerobic fitness by participating in a foul shot assessment, as well as a dribbling activity for the given time. During a question and answer session at the end of the class period, the students will be able to remember information by giving examples of the key elements of dribbling a basketball with 100% accuracy. These are the main objectives covered In the lesson and can be modified with the skills or activities involved to your liking.
This lesson could be used for assessment at any age level and the difficulty of the assessment is determined by the teacher. The recording of the pre-assessment is based on how the classroom teacher records their grades. There is a basic sheet to print off included to record each student’s assessment if you don’t want to make your own. They can either write it in a grade book, class attendance sheet beside their name, or any other method that is easy to record and save time during the activity. Enjoy!
