|All - Assessment Task 2:PE lesson planning and mini teach|
The goal of this task is for you to develop your skills in creating and practically implementing inclusive junior secondary PE lessons
|Product:||Creative Performance, and Written Piece|
This component of the assessment will be completed in groups of three/four. Your group will be allocated one of the four games categories and a secondary year (i.e. 7-10) and are required to plan a 70minute a practical Physical Education (PE) lesson to be delivered in an outdoor environment for a class of 24 students. Your PE lesson plan must include: • Learning goals and curriculum alignment • Ways you would cater for different learning needs • Learning activities, teaching strategies, PE protocols and safety considerations • How you would assess student learning formatively • Inclusion of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander histories/cultures/language and reference to the general capabilities You are also required to plan an indoor (classroom) wet weather alternative lesson to teach the same content. This should provide the students with the same knowledge, understanding and skills as the outdoor practical lesson, activities should be modified to suit the classroom environment. In your allocated tutorial, your group will teach an abbreviated version (max 10-15mins) of the practical lesson that your group designed to your peers. This experience will assist you in completion of Task 3 of this assessment. You will not be required to teach the wet-weather alternative lesson. You will be provided with a lesson plan template which will be provided on Canvas.
|All - Assessment Task 3:Critical reflective report|
To critically analyse, evaluate and reflect on lesson planning, experience and professional development.
This assessment task will be completed individually. You will use the feedback your received from your peers and your own perceptions to reflect on your lesson planning and your teaching experience. Your written personal reflection should include: • Discussion of how theory, research or pedagogical frameworks informed the design of your lessons. • Discussion of success of strategies and PE protocols used in your teaching. • Analysis of inclusive approaches and how ICT would be safely and ethically used in your teaching. • Evaluate how you have professionally grown as a result of this experience and what you would change in the future. • Reference to existing Physical Education literature and recommendations (you can use course readings in your reflection).
A 12-unit course will have total of 150 learning hours which will include directed study hours (including online if required), self-directed learning and completion of assessable tasks. Student workload is calculated at 12.5 learning hours per one unit.

Academic integrity is the ethical standard of university participation. It ensures that students graduate as a result of proving they are competent in their discipline. This is integral in maintaining the value of academic qualifications. Each industry has expectations and standards of the skills and knowledge within that discipline and these are reflected in assessment.
Academic integrity means that you do not engage in any activity that is considered to be academic fraud; including plagiarism, collusion or outsourcing any part of any assessment item to any other person. You are expected to be honest and ethical by completing all work yourself and indicating in your work which ideas and information were developed by you and which were taken from others. You cannot provide your assessment work to others. You are also expected to provide evidence of wide and critical reading, usually by using appropriate academic references.
In order to minimise incidents of academic fraud, this course may require that some of its assessment tasks, when submitted to Canvas, are electronically checked through Turnitin. This software allows for text comparisons to be made between your submitted assessment item and all other work to which Turnitin has access.
Eligibility for Supplementary Assessment Your eligibility for supplementary assessment in a course is dependent of the following conditions applying: The final mark is in the percentage range 47% to 49.4% The course is graded using the Standard Grading scale You have not failed an assessment task in the course due to academic misconduct
Late submission of assessment tasks may be penalised at the following maximum rate: - 5% (of the assessment task's identified value) per day for the first two days from the date identified as the due date for the assessment task. - 10% (of the assessment task's identified value) for the third day - 20% (of the assessment task's identified value) for the fourth day and subsequent days up to and including seven days from the date identified as the due date for the assessment task. - A result of zero is awarded for an assessment task submitted after seven days from the date identified as the due date for the assessment task. Weekdays and weekends are included in the calculation of days late. To request an extension you must contact your course coordinator to negotiate an outcome.
