1. Can a child in a wheelchair enter the front door and the back door? What modifications would you make? It would depend on the child in the wheel chair. If the child had an electric wheel chair or still had a high ability to use their arms then they would be able to go through the front door and the back door. A modification for this could be swing the rope slower so that the student would have a longer amount of time to get through. Also, you could use a longer rope which would make the amount of time they had to get through.
2. How would you apply goal setting to this lesson. You could have the students see how many times in a row you could jump the rope by yourself. You could measure the distance between the two ropes when you have the students jump for distance. You could have a pretest and see how far they can go and have a unit focus on leg strength and components of jumping further and then have a post test to see any improvements. You could split the class into two teams and have each group try to run through the back/front door and see who can get the highest number, and then repeat it to see if you can better your goal.
3. Design a long rope jumping routine for a pair of students jumping at the same time. First you could start off with showing the students how to tie together two jump ropes to make a longer rope. You could have the students take turns practicing turning the ropes to get consistency. Next, you could show the students the front door and back door and practice running through. Then, you could start the tag game with each person running through the front door and chasing the other person. You could then have students jump into the middle and begin jumping rope with the big rope. Any of the students not on the big rope could be practicing on the smaller ropes until it is their turn to jump in.
4. Create a checklist of critical elements to look for and use in teaching basic, two foot jump rope jumping.
- Follows Cues
1. Jumps with two feet
2. Jumps Low
3. Rope Over Head
-Transitions between skills
5. Describe how you would go about organizing a jump roping club for your elementary school. First I would ask around to other schools and organizations and see how they went about creating their jump rope clubs. I would ask the schools and organizations what made them successful and the types of skills that they teach. I would send home a newsletter to the parents of all the students and post on the phys ed website so that all of the students and their parents know about the club. Then I would have a meeting about the club after school and see who was interested and go from there.
6. Stimulus Variation- stimulus variation means different things that cause a response in a person. For example, different sizes of balls, different colors of the same sized ball and different textures are stimulus variation. Where stimulus variation occurred in this lesson was that there were different types of jump ropes in different colors and textures. Different types of stimuli help to keep the students involved and interested and can help everyone find something they like.
