Objectives/Standards:

Objective

Standards

Content Objective:

Sixth Grade Students will create a proposal and present to the school site-based council to implement an after-school exercise program for middle school students using an Exercise Routine Guide and score a 3 or higher on the scoring rubric

Kentucky Academic Standards - Practical Living:

2.29 Students demonstrate skills that promote individual well-being and healthy family relationships.

2.31 Students demonstrate the knowledge and skills they need to remain physically healthy and to

accept responsibility for their own physical well-being

Technology Objective:

Sixth Grade Students will create a Google Site to promote and provide information for the exercise club that contains at least 4 pages of content and scores a 3 or above on the scoring rubric. Students will use this site during their presentation to the school site-based council.

ISTE Student Standard 4:

Students use a variety of technologies within a design process to

identify and solve problems by creating new, useful or imaginative solutions. Students:

a. know and use a deliberate design process for generating

ideas, testing theories, creating innovative artifacts or solving

authentic problems.

b. select and use digital tools to plan and manage a design process that considers design constraints and calculated risks.

c. develop, test and refine prototypes as part of a cyclical

design process.

d. exhibit a tolerance for ambiguity, perseverance and the capacity to work with open-ended problems.

How does your lesson address the following?

  1. Revised Bloom’s Level

6.2 - Planning

Students will create and implement a plan for an after-school student exercise program a new student health club. The process will involve collecting information, collaborating with experts, and creating a new program based upon the information they have learned.

  1. Cognitive Complexity

C Level: Level 4 - Integrating

Justification: Student generated project with content at the Create: Planning level

  1. Real World learning

R Level: Level 4 - Integrating

Justification: Learning impacts the school and is integrated across subject areas.

  1. Engaged learning

E Level: Level 4 - Integrating

Justification: Students partner with other students. Student inquiry based approach. Students partner with teacher to define product.

  1. Technology integration

T Level: Level 4 - Integrating

Justification: Embedded in content and essential to completing the project. Promotes collaboration among students and teacher. Helps solve the problem at the Create level.

  1. How will you collaborate with other professionals in this lesson?

I would be the technology resource teacher for this lesson. Even though I am currently a classroom teacher, I already fulfill many of the duties of a technology resource teacher. I would work with the classroom teacher to ensure that the tasks given to students are aligned to their learning objectives and standards. I would work with the classroom teacher to provide any training for the teacher or the students to ensure the lesson went smoothly and the technology used was an enhancement to the learning and not an obstacle. In terms of the CReaTE framework, as a technology resource teacher my task would be to ensure that the tech was embedded into the content and promoted collaboration between students and the classroom teacher.

Creating an After-School Exercise Program        

Scenario:

As you know, our school does not offer a recess period to give every student a chance for physical activity. Also, you know that many of your fellow students do not have PE class for the entire school year. Your group will complete a proposal for the school site-based council on creating an after school student exercise program for the middle school. Your proposal should include a budget, an approved exercise program, and plans for a club meeting space. You will create a Google Site to advertise the club to students, promoting the benefits of the club and providing information about the club. You will use the site as part of your proposal to the site-based council.

Student Directions:

  1. Teacher will present the project to students as an authentic problem for them to solve. Students will be tasked with creating an after-school exercise program for the middle school.
  2. Students will work in groups and research exercises that are appropriate for middle schools students. They should provide options for programs that align to the categories on the Exercise Guide template to provide for many different types of physical activity that students can participate in.
  3. Students will research any equipment costs for their exercise programs and create a budget that will be used as part of their final presentation.
  4. Students will be given a presentation template with all necessary sections to create their presentation to the school site-based council for approval and implementation of the after school exercise program.
  5. Students will work as a group to build and maintain a Google Site that provides information about the exercise program. Students should work on the site design to make it appealing and to build excitement about the program.
  6. All materials will be used in a presentation to the school site-based council for approval and implementation of the exercise program.
