Fitness Habits Paper (Stand Alone Instructional Resource)


Fitness Habits Paper (Stand Alone Instructional Resource)

Logo for Fitness Habits Paper (Stand Alone Instructional Resource)
This Stand Alone Instructional Resource (StAIR) guides students through a review of benefits of regular exercise, reasons why people do or don't exercise, and then prompts them to write a brief paper about the exercise habits of people they know.  Powerpoint kiosk mode is used, and a powerpoint show will open when the material link is clicked.  If you'd like more info on the design of the material (including physical education standards met), visit:

Great job on the STAIR.  I think this is something I could make use of the next time I am teaching a physical education class.  Great job.

UDL guidlines are well represented.  The appearance is colorful but not overbearing, and the use of different size, color and type of font is attractive.   I like the way you added some comedy, music and sound effects.  Additionally, there are multiple means of representation as there are not only slides but also web links from a hospital and a physical therapy organization  and a link for a worksheet.  The only thing that may be missing is the possiblity for students to hear what has been written.

Technical Remarks:

The lesson is easy to navigate through and there are no problems with the links or action buttons. Also, the timing of everything is great!  Well done.
