2 Direct instruction

Activity: Assessing

Everyone grab a basketball. No we are going to learn how to dribble. Now put the ball in your dominant hand. If you do not know what that hand is I will come around and help you. We are going to start with the front to back dribble. Follow my lead. Alright good job class! Now switch hands. Awesome Job! Now we are going to learn how to dribble from side to side. Follow my lead.


Activity: Assessing

As we get better at our ball handling we will move on to harder moves, but for today we will make sure we get the basics first.  If anyone has any questions, or they are not sure what to do, just raise your hand and I will come help you.

Next week class we are going to go over our dribbling skills again.  I will ask everyone to show me what they have learned.
