Unit 2: Skill Acquisition and Sport Psychology
Part a: Skill Acquisition
To ensure that we can learn skills effectively, teachers and coaches must create the best possible practice conditions to maximise learning.
- What are the eight different methods / types of practice? Describe what each method / type involves.
- Give a practical example of a sporting skill that could be taught using each method / type of training.
- Plan a 5 -10 practical session for a skill of your choice that you can teach the rest of your class using one of the methods / types of practice you have researched.
Part b: Sport Psychology
Personality is a major factor and its relationship to sport is vast.
- What is personality and how does it affect our choice of sports?
- Complete Cattell’s 16 Personality Factor Questionnaire (16PF) and identify those personality traits that were predictable and those that were surprising to you.
PE Social Context
- Global Sporting Events:
Research and evaluate the impact of the FIFA Women’s Football World Cup.
Consider the impact on:
- The sport of football
- Female representation within sport and media.
- The host country (and cities)
- Overall support for the campaign.
Do you think it gave women’s football (or women’s sport in general) the appropriate “shop window effect”
- Modern Technology:
For a sport of your choice, discuss the impact of modern technology on both elite performance and on general participation (particularly target groups)
Using specific examples of sporting technology to justify your opinion.
