Discussion for FITT Stair
Jane F. O'Brien (Faculty)
The presentation began well. I was glad to see that was to be an interactive lesson. However, I was only able to view the first four slides.

This is an outstanding StAIR for a physical education class. This resource does a good job explaining and teaching the content of FITT. Specifically, the resource does a good job of this by providing a video resource for the viewer. This allows visual learners to have as good of an opportunity to learn the material as text learners. The resource also does a good job of providing links for the students to explore the content further. Also, it provides students the ability calculate their own target heart range. This could be a good motivating factor for the students.
Perhaps one way to make this resource more UDL friendly would be to add audio to your text on the slides for students with visual impairments, students that struggle to read, and students that are auditory learners. Also, the video could be equipped with text for students that learn best by reading or are hearing impaired.

Derek, I really enjoyed this assignment. I think you capitolized and succeeded in trying to reach a variety of learning styles. You did a wonderful job demonstrating how to calculate a heart rate from different medias. I think this is geared to differently learning styles and abiliites. It demonstrates rewards and provides a reason for effort and persistence throughout this assignment. It is engaging and informative.
The only change I would recommend is using audio in some sections for individuals who learn through auditory methods.
I am also a PE teacher and I will be using this in my classroom. Thanks for sharing!

This presentation did an excellent job explaining the importance of physical activity and its benefits. It was very easy to follow and understand. The sequencing made sense and the quiz questions were appropriate. The video summarizing the 5 components of fitness was funny and informative.
My only suggestion would be to add the option of listening to the presentation for students who are visually impaired.
