What is Sport?
Discussion

Think about or discuss with your partner/group what you consider to be a sport.

Watch this video below.  Discuss what is their definition of sport?  Do you agree?  Can you think of any examples of sport that does not fit in with this definition?

Teacher Comment

Excellent work, Ethan. Your notes and reflection on this unit are much more thorough; look at the quality of the work you are able to produce when you are focused! I particularly like the intonation of your voice on your recording - very professional and engaging!

Know much more clearly about sport


Teacher Comment

You've provided a fairly straightforward definition of sports and identified some of their physical and social benefits.  I'd like to see you working towards greater depth and detail in your outcomes and reflections.  What next?

We learn what is sport


Teacher Comment

A reasonable video explaining what sport is at a basic level.  In these learning outcomes I'd like to see you pushing yourself towards greater depth and detail.  Your student comment doesn't show much in the way of genuine reflection.  Finishing units is important, but finishing them well is even more so.

Now I understand what sport is and why people do sport.


Teacher Comment

Your video shows a good understanding of three important reasons to do sport.  You could have delved more deeply into different types of sport and perhaps considered the way different sports might offer their players different benefits.  Make sure you engage full with all the requirements of the task and ask if you are unsure!
