Sample from DJ Bevivino

Artifact: IEP
Element: 3.1
Date: Fall 2008

Reflection: The IEP or Individualized Educational Plan demonstrates my ability to create plans for both short term and long term for a student with a variety of needs.  This plan was submitted for EDU 356 Adapted Physical Education.   I included this artifact because it not only shows that I can work with students with disabilities, but also I can plan an appropriate educational model for them to follow both in the short term and the long term.  It also highlights my ability to write and plan objectives, and modify/adapt or create an activity for many situations as they are required.

Artifact: Tactical Lesson Plan
Element: 3.6
Date: Fall 2008

Reflection: The Lesson plan that is included shows my ability of working well in an inclusive classroom.  It also demonstrates that I can create a lesson plan with a focus on progressions and sequences.  This lesson plan was submitted to PED 381 Tactical Concepts of Team Sports.   This artifact was included because it shows the strengths that I possess when planning a lesson.  It shows that I can plan using progressions and that I understand the tactical model.  It also showcases my ability to plan an inclusive lesson and have it flow without having to change the objectives or goals.

Sample from Jack Murphy
In EDU 255: Basics of Effective Instruction in Physical Education, Jack was required to develop and instruct three different lessons involving physical activity and fitness. For Lab D, the final lab of the course, Jack taught the flutter kick in the swimming pool to his peers. This lesson was his most creative and well planned lesson of the semester and used the imagination of the students in order to teach the skill. NASPE Standard 3 is well addressed in this situation as shown by his lesson plan and activity progression sheet.
