A small section from my basketball unit plan EDSS 511
2. UNIT RATIONALE: ENDURING UNDERSTANDINGS & ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS Basketball is one of the big 5 sports that are played in the United States. In many life situations weather it be at school, hanging out with friends, or at work with co workers basketball is played as a social team sport. Gathering fundamentals of this game will in hope increase student’s possibilities to participate in physical activity into adult hood. Also learning the basic rules, etiquette, and court layout will allow students to become better future spectators and/or coaches in the future. Performing small-sided games of basketball in their sport ed teams will increase the opportunity to respond while performing each skill and technique that we will be going over this unit. Dribbling, passing, shooting, defending, and refereeing will be covered in this unit to help build confidence and competence in the sport of Basketball in hopes to increase physical activity in their futures. Basketball is a team sport that focuses on teamwork and unity. It also covers many social skills that many students need to practice so that they are better prepared for the work force post high school. Enduring Understandings (EU) Students should leave this unit with an understanding of the basic rules, etiquettes, techniques and tactics of the basketball. They should leave understanding the importance of being able to work with a vast population of people, increased social skills, and the importance of teamwork. Students should understand that basketball is a very popular game in America and may have several opportunities in the future to play this game with friends, family, and co-workers.
