Week 1 Medical Assignment

  • Assignment Topic: Unit-Specific Study Guide

    Rationale: You will demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the unit content for the physical education course/unit you are currently missing. As a non-participant, you will do this through the creation of a sport/unit review packet. The packet will contain information that demonstrates your cognitive understanding of the unit, as well as the psychomotor, or physical, understanding of the sport. This information may be shared and used to help others learn about physical education if the quality of the project is deemed appropriate.


    • Student will be able to demonstrate knowledge of various components of their specific physical education unit through developing a study guide and quiz.
    • Student will be able to conduct research using at least two web-resources to locate up-to-date information for their unit-specific study guide.
    • Student will be able to analyze their previous research from their study guide to design and develop a quiz based on that information.


    • 2.2.12.MSC.1: Explain and demonstrate ways to apply movement skills from one game, sport, aerobics, or recreational activity to another including striking skills (e.g., tennis, badminton, ping pong, racquetball, pickle ball). 
    • 2.2.12.LF.1: Apply and share a movement and physical fitness vocabulary that is intrinsic to motivate oneself, to impact family, and others in a community. 


    Part 1

    Research and develop an original study guide for the course/unit your class is currently in (i.e, “Volleyball Study Guide”). If you are unsure what unit your class is currently in, reach out to your teacher. The study guide must contain the following categories of information and be listed in the order presented:

    • Title of the Course or Unit
    • History of sport or activity
    • Basic equipment description and needs
    • Rules/Regulations
    • Safety considerations
    • Suggested game strategy (or purpose of activity if not a sport)
    • Diagram of court or playing field
    • At least one website resource (not to exceed 2)

    Part 2

    Develop a worksheet or quiz that coincides with the study guide. Using fill-in-the-blank statements, True/False statements, and other types of questions, create a worksheet or quiz that will demonstrate a person’s knowledge of the information presented in the study guide. The worksheet/quiz must have at least 20 questions or items, and it must include information from each of the categories in the study guide. The answer key must also be included.

    Grading: Your assignment will be evaluated on the following:

    • Completion of all assignment requirements
    • Use of accurate and up-to-date content information to develop your study guide and worksheet/quiz
    • Creativity – formatting, aesthetic, and design.
    • Submission of the assignment to your teacher’s email by Friday of the week assigned.

    Based on the above items, your grade will be placed in the gradebook in lieu of your “participation” for the week.
