255 homework questions 1, 4, and 5

1.) What is meant by the idea that teaching is a good-oriented activity?
Teaching is a goal oriented activity because in teaching you need to have a clear goal on what you want your students to learn. If teachers did not always have a goal to teach something to their students, they would not be doing there job correct. All teachers should always have a goal for there classes which is why it is a goal oriented activity. Physical education specially is a huge goal oriented activity because PE never stops, it is a lifelong activity with never ending goals.

4.) Why is the process that teachers choose to use to teach content important?
The process that teachers choose to teach with is important because processes reach goals. If you as a teacher just threw balls out and told the students to play they would not get the concept of what you are trying to teach. Processes break down the teaching into parts, and through these parts teachers can achieve pychomotor, affective, and cognitive goals for there students. Also through processes students can learn goals that the teacher did not intend them too such as fair play and sportsmanship. 

5.) Why is the movement task-student response unit of analysis so important in P.E?
The movement task-student response unit of analysis is important in PE because as a teacher you can see where your class is as a whole. The movement task is activities assigned to the students that relate to the lesson. As a teacher  we have a job to watch and provide feedback to the children. This is where the analysis comes into part. By watching the students motor activities we can determine what is the next appropriate teaching move. This could be to continue the lesson plan and move forward, or go back and clarify the task you just assigned. This is all based on the teacher and how the students perform certain tasks.
