All of your teacher colleagues are beginning to plan lessons around the Common Core Standards. I’d be glad to provide ideas for you and to use this blog to communicate questions/answers/ideas/ examples. See R&R Framework Link. There are some good examples for health ed there as a reference. The graphic below shows the relationship between Blooms on the left and apply knowledge and skills to real-world situations (relevance).You do this all of the time !!
- Your lessons engage students in applying motor skills and/or concepts.
- Asking students to analyze others or create movement and evaluate self/others using effort, pathways, levels,(standard 2 concepts) and locomotor movements etc is category D work.
- Quadrant D learning requires the student to think and work. Roles have shifted from teacher centered instruction in Quadrant A to student-centered learning. Quadrant D requires that students understand the standard or benchmark being taught thoroughly, but equally important, they must also understand and conceptualize relevant applications for the content being covered.
- I believe problem solving and cooperative activities/games also are examples of work in quadrant D
Quadrant D ⎯ Adaptation
Students have the competence to think in complex ways and also apply knowledge and skills they have acquired. Even when confronted with perplexing unknowns, students are able to use extensive knowledge and skill to create solutions and take action that further develops their skills and knowledge.
