Acknowledge and address the developmental levels and individual differences within and among learners in a class or age group of students or participants. Provide activities that guarantee successful experiences for all students or participants and provide individual challenges for the athletically gifted, the below average, as well as the average learner.

Example assignment Know each of the codes and what they stand for
To insure increased ALT-PE: 1) Eliminate elimination 2) Maximize opportunities for skill performance [touches] 3) Utilize developmentally appropriate equipment and tasks 4) Ensure a high success rate in a developmentally appropriate task relative to skill levels When students are provided with simply time on task it may actually be a counter- productive period of time and/or activity.
Opportunities to respond Why is this more accurate than simply measuring activity time? Hierarchy OTLs/OTRs ALT-PE Time on task

Important to provide feedback to students regarding what they are doing well and/or may need to improve. This includes motivational comments Later at WCU, the type and amount will be closely monitored What might you say to this student?student

Teacher should adjust activities so that task is not too easy (boredom) or too hard (frustration) Challenge progresses or builds from previous learning
