Analyzing Proper Running Form Tracy Enos ETEC 442 June 23, 2005 Learners 12th Grade Public High School Kinesiology Class Basic Computer Skills and Motor Skills Biomechanics Software Lesson Objective Students will be able to identify the wrong running mechanics Students will be able to explain the right techniques to run properly Students will be able to graph together a work plan for fixing the problem Content Standards Students demonstrate successful movement forms at a basic level and some movement forms at a mastery level. Students apply movement concepts and principles to the learning and development of motor skills. Students demonstrate ways to achieve and maintain a health-enhancing level of physical fitness. Technology Standards Students are proficient in the use of technology. Students use technology to locate, evaluate, and collect information from a variety of sources. Students use technology tools to process data and report results. Students use technology resources for solving problems and making informed decisions. Lesson Introduction Define the proper mechanics to running. Video on professional runners and past students with proper mechanics. Introduce students to the Biomechanics' software Stimulus Students will: Be grouped into groups of two. Video type their partner’s running. Convert their video image of partners into 3D figures on computer using the Biomechanics' software. Stimulus Continued Compare their partner’s 3D figure side by side with 3D figures of professional runners or past student with proper running mechanics. Chart down their findings and then make a workout plan to fix the problem if there is one. Retake their partners’ running and 3D figure two weeks before semester is over to see if there is any improvement. Lesson Closure Students will present their findings to class. Students will present their solutions. Students will be tested on the proper procedures leading up to the conclusion and solution. Follow up Group discussion on if their was any changes in the first typing to the second one. Group discussion on if their workout plan helped their partner on improving his running mechanics. Group discussion on the use of technology in a Kinesiology class.
