Common Teaching Cues

Title IX

Whole Method
Skill is first demonstrated and then practiced as a whole, from start to finish. Best used for fast skills

Part Method
parts of the skill are practiced in isolation which is useful for complicated and serial skills and is good for maintaining motivation and focusing on specific elements of the skill

Whole skill is practiced and demonstrated before being broken down into the parts to practice the individual elements, then putting the whole skill back together. ex. swimming

Progressive Part Method
“chain method” parts of a skill are practiced individually, in order, before being linked together. ex. triple jump

Blood Lactate
extreme intensity of physical activity overtakes the circulatory system’s ability to remove this from the muscles

created standards and assessment guidelines for physical education

Reflective Cycle
knowledge base (gap, to allow learning from other experiences & colleagues)
reflect back on knowledge base
develop a “reflective” plan
implement plan
observe results
continue the cycle until something works
