Extracts from this document...


Using your experience from a team game, racket game and an individual activity complete the following question: Review the classification of skills to include the difference between individual, coactive and interactive skills. The term skill can be used in different ways - as: 1. A descriptive word for example, how consistent, successful or technically correct a performer is. 2. A specific act for example, badminton serves. 3. A series of movements with a clearly defined objective for example, netball. Knapp's definition of skills states that 'skill is the learned ability to result to bring about predetermines results with maximum certainty often with the minimum outlay of time or energy or both'.

When considering the requirements of the skill, you need to decide whether it is appropriate to present it as a whole or if it can be simplified into more manageable parts. Skills that are appropriate to be split into parts and which can be easily divided are referred to as 'low organised skills'. Those that are difficult to be divided up are 'highly organised skills'. Highly organised skills tend to be continuous skills as it is difficult to divide them up. Whereas 'low organised skills tend to be serial skills as they are a compound of discrete parts. Another thing would be the environment open and closed skills, whether or not the environment would affect the student learning or the teacher/coach teaching. An example would be a coach teaching a player the technique of shooting you would have to consider the various aspects. Date: 16/11/07 Word count: 1026 ...read more.
