  1. Thanks for catching up on your earlier blog entry. Your unit seems appropriate and you seem to have developed good questions although you may want to add additional content questions related specifically to volleyball. I am interested to see how you can take your skills based unit on volleyball and have your students address how this ensures a better quality of life.

  2. I like the idea of using a particular sport to teach body movements. I teach Anatomy and Physiology and I find that the students are very interested in learning about the particular bones and muscles that they use in their particular sports.
