What is meant by the idea that teaching is a goal-oriented activity?
Teaching is a goal-oriented activity means that in order to successfully educate students you must create goals or objectives for your lessons. These goals have to fall within the country, state, and local standards to create credentials for your program. Without any goals or credentials, your lessons have no direction, similar to moving a car without a driver.
Why is the process that teachers choose to use to teach content important?
The process you choose as a teacher to teach your content is important so that you can meet your goals and objectives. There are a variety of processes you can choose from but it is important to select the one that will help direct you to the specific goal you are trying to reach. For example trying to prepare your students to set in volleyball, as a teacher you would want to start in a closed environment and gradually move until your students are ready for an open environment similar to game play.
Why is the movement task- student response unit of analysis so important in physical education?
Movement task- student response is vital to a quality physical education program because it allows the teacher to assess how well they explained the task based off their students performance. It then allows the teacher to assess where to move next, whether it is moving to the next level or redesigning the task. This allows them the opportunity to give corrective feedback and encouragement.
