P.E. Central Lesson Plan: Forehand Ground Stroke Peer Assessment Sheet
Purpose of Activity:
To see if students can identify if their peers are using the correct cues when performing the forehand ground stroke in tennis.
Suggested Grade Level:
The following task sheet (will need several of these); a partner to observe hitting a forehand ground stroke; a person to toss balls to the hitter; tennis racket
; and tennis balls
; something to write on and with; Also will need an area where the hitter can hit balls using the forehand stroke;
Time Needed to Complete:
To be completed during PE class;
Description of Idea
Have students get in groups of 3. One person will be the observer (he/she will have the assessment sheet), one will be the tosser, and one will be the hitter of the forehand stroke. The hitter will hit several (this is up to the teacher as you may want to just have them do no more than 10 trials) forehand ground strokes from underhand tosses made by the tosser. The observer is to record what he/she sees based on the assessment sheet that is provided. Switch places when done.
NOTE: It may be wise to just have the observer watch for just one or two of the sections listed on this sheet as opposed to trying to do it all at once.
It is very important that you have discussed with your students proper etiquette and sportsmanship for this activity. They need to be encouraging of each other especially if a student is struggling with the task. Forehand Ground Stroke Peer Assessment Sheet
