Grade 9 – Personal Development & Well-Being Unit Assignment

 

I am very excited to announce that our Personal Development and Well-Being unit begins this week.
I have begun to arrange a variety of specialists to come in and assist me in exposing the grade 9 girls class to a range of different activities.

Some of these activities include:
-Pilates
-Step and Aerobics
-Ballet
-Meditation
-Belly Dancing

Throughout this unit we will also be doing some cardio and weight-training using the facilities we have available at the Ruoholahti weight gym.

Your assignment will be to keep a ‘PE diary’ of all our classes and the activities we do over the next few weeks.

The diary can be presented using a number of mediums.  It can be a traditional diary, or an online diary (use Penzu.com) or written using your favorite word processing program.

(Here is a sample diary entry I wrote for this assignment.)

For this assignment you will be assessed using Criteria C – Movement Composition.

Here is the Rubric:

Criterion B: Movement Composition (Maximum 6 points)

Students are expected to be able to compose a line dance using aesthetic movement, through exploring movement possibilities and variations and using the principles and concepts of line dancing as inspiration.

Grade 6 Trimester 1 Assignment Update

Dear Grade 6 Students and Parents:

Today in PE each student received a double-sided paper copy of the ‘rough draft’ of their assignment.  One side has the Venn Diagram template and the other side has the details of the assignment and a rubric for assessment.

We started filling out the Venn Diagram using the information from the notes we took in class.

For homework, students can finish filling in the Venn Diagram using the notes on this post.

The rest of the assignment is explained on the back of the ‘rough draft’.  I have also included a copy of both sides below. (If the below pictures are unclear, please click on the PDF versions linked at the end of this post.)

Please contact me at alisonq@ish.edu.hel.fi if you have any further questions.

Note:  Students know they MUST bring their completed rough draft to class on Monday, November 1st.  (Or Thursday, November 4th if they are away on Monday.)
