Just wanted to thank you for this. I have been teaching on and off for years. Recently started again about six months ago. The students I have are fantastic, but are missing fundamental jumping skills. I haven’t addressed it because it’s not my curriculum and they’re in an advanced class. I didn’t want to insult them or the facility owner. I realize now that I’d be doing a disservice by continuing to ignore it. We’re going to work on it next week.
Hey there Barb, thank you so much for sharing where you’re at with your students! I’d love to hear how it goes, if you get a moment after the first few weeks of implementing this strategy, let me know! I have always found that if you can gamify some of the fundamentals that you want students to work on outside of class, you can get a lot of buy in – $5 starbucks cards can go a long way as rewards, but I also found that just having a list of student’s names on a sheet on the wall, and happy face stickers if they worked on some foundation HW outside of class and could demonstrated it in class, was VERY motivating. Students wanted those smiley faces by their names!
