Who Put the BAD in the Badminton!

Grade 10: How does our Personal and Social Behaviour Impact our Performance in Physical Activity? 

Oi Grade 10!

Thinking back to your experiences so far in our net and wall activities, I wonder, what actions have you taken to demonstrate leadership, fair-play, teamwork and communication?

Take a look at the following videos of singles and doubles badminton play. What actions do you see that demonstrate the players' abilities to be leaders, play fairly, be inclusive and also communicate with others in a positive and constructive way?

Thinking critically about your personal and social behaviour within the PE setting...

Use the following enduring understanding and essential questions in order to help guide your progress as we begin doubles badminton play:

Enduring Understanding
  • A double team's decisions and actions determine their level of success in a badminton match

Essential Questions
  • What decisions and actions impact the success of a game?
  • How does receiving and giving feedback impact the ability to work collaboratively as a team?
  • How does peer teaching and/or coaching impact the development of movement fundamentals?
  • How does knowledge of basic procedures in doubles play affect the success of a team?

Team Building

Based on your rankings at the completion of our singles round robin badminton tournament, you will be placed in partners for doubles badminton play. I wonder, how could you take action and demonstrate leadershipfair-playteamwork and communication while working in partners? 

Use the personal and social behaviour rubric that is shared in our folder for PE in order to track your progress. I wonder, what core values are you also practicing during your participation in this unit?
