Read the following scenario that describes the game of Red Rover (an activity in the hall of shame!). Reflect on how this game violates the Four S’s as outlined in Chapter 8: safe, success, satisfying, and skill appropriate.
Two teams face each other across half of a basketball court and take turns calling players over from the opposite side. After Team A decides who it wants to challenge, the members join hands to form a long chain and call for Team B to “send Frank over.” Frank then runs as fast as possible to either break through or dive under the chains formed by Team A. If Frank fails to break through, he becomes part of Team A. If he succeeds, he returns to his team together with the two players of Team A who were at the point he broke through. Team B now calls over a player from Team A.
You can choose to discuss Red Rover or any of the other games that violate at least one of the four S’s. Some examples are: dodge ball, “Messy Back Yard”, relay races, tug of war, “Simon Says”, musical chairs, tag, etc.
Explain the basics of the game/activity that you chose and how it is usually played. Give an analysis of how it specifically violates at least one of the Four S’s. Finally, include a detailed explanation on how you would modify and adapt this activity so that it meets all of the Four S’s: safe, success, satisfying and skill appropriate. It might be that the activity would need to be completely revised and a new activity would need to take its place in order to not violate the Four S’s. In that case, explain which activity you would use to replace this one.
Guided Response: Respond to two classmates. Review the game/activity they chose and respond with how you would adapt the lesson to include a child with a specific disability (such as vision impairment, Downs syndrome, cerebral palsy, etc.) If relevant, include a reflection of your own experiences with the game/activity they described.
In this discussion forum, you will examine your critical thinking, inquiring, and communication skills within the subject of physical education.
Questioning compels thinking and, as thinkers, you assess what you read and incorporate knowledge with your prior understanding of the subject. As part of this discussion, you will read about concepts surrounding physical education and evaluate your previous knowledge on this subject. Then, you will create your own question for your classmates to answer.
