Middle

He is at the cognitive stage of learning where he is trying to understand what needs to be done. The performer cannot obtain enough depth in serve suggesting lack of flexibility in the wrist flexibility is the amount of movement in a joint. The candidate does not display the characteristics of skill with regards to the high serve in badminton. I.e. the serve is not efficient, accurate or consistent. D4 Although the main drawbacks of the performer's high serve in badminton appear to be the inability to produce acuracy and depth. I feel that the basic mecanics of the serve need to be addressed in order to improve these. Therefore I intend to devise a method to improve the execution of the serve. I feel that I have easy access to the necesary recources to carry out my plan. I will use the school sports hall at an arranged time with my sports studies tutor. I will have use of a badminton court complete with a net. Rackets and shuttlecocks are readily available. ...read more.

Conclusion

The componant parts of the high serve are: - I. Grip. II. Use of cocked hand. III. Eye on shuttle. IV. Angle of racket. V. Follow through. The performer will then practise each componant part individualy. When the performer has learnt each componant part well she will put the componant parts back together and perform the serve as a whole. I will then observe ten high serves after part practise has taken place. Once again I will count how many serves fall into the target area. I will measure how deep into the target area each serve falls. I will then compare the scores obtained with those recorded before part practice took place. E3 I think that part learning would be a suitable method for this performer to learn the high serve in badminton because: - I. The performer is a beginer. II. The high serve is a difficult skill to learn. III. The high serve is a serial skill which can be easily broken down. IV. This will reduce the demand on the learner. V. Confidence should increase. VI. Motivation should increase if success can be seen. VII. Teacher can focus on a particular componant if that is where the problem is seen to be. ...read more.
