Description of Idea
Stations are set up for each skill on the sheet listed below. More than one pair can work at a station. Each pair of students have an assessment sheet and a pencil. Each sheet has the set shot, lay up, chest pass, and dribbling. Below each skill are 3-4 key points for the student to focus on while demonstrating/observing the skill.
While one student demonstrates the skill, the observer communicates the key points he/she is looking for. As the observer recognizes the key points he/she makes a check mark next to that key point.
Learning is reinforced as students demonstrate the skill, watch the skill being performed, and also by reading the key points to the demonstrator.
