Assessment 2: Health and physical education folio – part B Word limit: 2000 words (+/- 10%) Weighting: 30% Due date: 9am AEDT Monday 11 January (Week 8)
Assessment overview
The purpose of this folio assessment is to produce a collection of information, resources and reflections from Module B (Weeks 5-7) which will help you develop your skills in teaching health and physical education. This assessment constitutes the second part of your portfolio, building on Assessment 1 (Part A) which covered Module A.
By gathering information into a folio, you are demonstrating an ability to identify, evaluate and transmit ideas about effective principles, policies and practices for developing health and physical education within a primary school setting. This assessment allows you to add a reflective dialogue and track your reasons for including specific evidence. Your folio should not just be a collection of resources. If academic underpinning is not evident, then you will not pass this assessment. Utilise the expertise of your eLA to question whether the evidence you have chosen to include meets the assessment criteria.
Assessment details
Your folio will contain three separate items which will relate to each of the topic areas within Module B (as specified in the table below). Each item should be clearly labelled for marking purposes with the name and description, and must include:
? evidence of the resource, such as a photograph, document (e.g. MS Word) or URL (if from an external source)
? a descriptive rationale and reflection on the resource. This must include:
1. a brief description of the resource
2. an explanation of how it would be used in health and physical education, providing evidence of knowledge and understanding of pedagogy, tools, methods and resources. Consider different teaching strategies you may use, any links to practice you have, and reflections from placement experiences or discussion board communications
3. an analysis of the benefits and limitations of the resource, linked to academic literature and curricula documentation (i.e. the Australian Curriculum), demonstrating evidence connecting academic literature to practice.

Item Theme Item
1 Active play and
games
An outline for a game that would be suitable for early primary students.
This game must incorporate ability and inclusion concerns.
2 Challenge and
adventure activities
An outline of a physical activity for middle primary students which
requires cooperation and problem solving skills.
3 Group games and
sports
An outline for a lesson for upper primary students based on an
organised sport. This lesson must incorporate both ICT and ability and
inclusion concerns.
Note that these outlines only need to be broad overviews of the lesson or activity. They do not
need to be detailed lesson plans.
Each of your folio items must be fully referenced in APA style. Note that references are not
included within the word limit.
Folio format
Your folio should be submitted as a Word document. Within this document:
? Each item must be clearly labelled with the name and description.
? Include all relevant information within the item, e.g. links to online resources, embedded.
Note that for this assessment, you will be developing the resources yourself, rather than finding
material on the internet (or elsewhere). The word limit of 2000 (+/-10%) applies to both the
resources you produce and also the descriptive rationale and analysis of these resources. While
this will allow some level of flexibility in terms of how much you write for each individual item, you
are strongly advised to split the word count as evenly as possible between all three items.
Submission details
Please submit your assignment through Turnitin. More detailed information is available in the
Assessment 1 folder in Blackboard.
