YEAR 12 HPE - SPORT PSYCHOLOGY

 

Designed by Matthew Scholes, the focus is on developing mental fitness and building resilience.

The lessons apply to every sport.

They are useful for school coaches, elite mentors and everything in between.

Withering sprays of yesteryear are out.

Instead, Scholes encourages participants to keep their cool and look for positives while using an optimistic mindset to deal with negatives.

Scholes suggests the evidence-based approach helps players perform at their peak.

50 Questions To Promote Metacognition In Students - Te@chThought

50 Questions To Promote Metacognition In Students - Te@chThought | What improves performance in physical activity? | Scoop.it

"Using the right questions creates powerful, sometimes multiple answers and discussions. Aristotle said that he asked questions in response to other people’s views, while Socrates focused on disciplined questioning to get to the truth of the matter.

 

Ultimately questions spark imagination, conjure emotions, and create more questions. The questions asked by a teacher or professor are sometimes more glaringly valuable than the information transferred to the students. Those questions spark a thought, which leads to a fiercely independent search for information.

 

If students are the ones gathering that information then they’re the ones learning it and student-driven learning cements lessons into the students’ mind making any lesson more powerful with this strategy. Even though the following list of questions are broken into Mathematics, Literature and Science and Social Science, it’s really just a set of philosophically challenging questions that should be applied to any learning environment.

 

The questions are unrestricted and open the mind up to unfettered thought, perfect for innovation and understanding. The sections begin with Mathematical Questions because for the purpose of this list they’re the most general and therefore the most useful."

joe smith's comment, June 10, 2014 10:38 PM
this applies to our assessment as the first law states that an object in motion stays in motion and stopping makes it harder on our energy systems as an external force is needed then to restart ourselves again.
