Class: Basics of Effective Instruction in P.E. EDU 255

Artifact: Lesson Plan for Wheelchair Handball and Task List

Date: Spring 2010


Wheelchair Sports were new to me when I was assigned to teach them in my EDU 255 class. I decided to teach wheelchair handball, because it is not as well known as some of the other sports like basketball. I had to research a vast amount of information being that I had no experience with this type of sport before. Organization and being knowledgeable about what you are teaching is a key factor of being successful.  I had a well planned out lesson plan as well as a task list to make sure my lesson went smoothly.
