Blooms Taxonomy A Method of how information get retained, by the inclusions of Cognitive (Think about it whilst doing it.) Affecitive (bring in the analysis of the information) Psycho Moto ( Doing it)Fitts and Posner is similar to blooms in assessing how information becomes permanent in our mind. However it is more related towards sports /dance/physical exercise by the inclusion. It starts with cognitive again, but then refers to the analysis as refining the movement, and finally ends with the ‘doing’ however now in the context of a performance. Example – Seen later on in the placement talk about which section we are going to rehearse, go over the movement, clean it up, perfect it, perform it.
Teacher allocated time – amount of time we spend teaching them the skills, movement.Student Engaged time – how motivated are they? Are they constantly focused on a task to do?Student success rate – if they can succeed in the movements they will be motivated to keep trying.Task Difficulty – if the task is too hard they will automatically give up and switch off.Individuality – each pupil has different levels f motivation/abilities.Found we spend a lot of time going over movement due to student missing, which meant it was hard to keep all of them engaged at the same time. Towards the end this got better as everyone knew everything and students started to help each other keeping busy and on task.At the beginning because it was new to them all of them kept saying ‘I Cant’, and would make them switch off. But with positive feedback from us and encouragment they improved and started to enjoy challenging themselves. Also noticed that one pupil was weaker with picking up movement and another with confidence, so when putting pairs together we would mix them with the stronger pupils to help push them and balance the class out.
