. Question : Mrs.Orlof teaches two history classes, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Yesterday she gave the same test to both classes. Anyone who failed the test must take a retest. Since a greater percentage of students who took the morning test failed the test than students who took the afternoon test, more of Orlof’s morning history students than afternoon history students will have to take the retest. The conclusion above is not necessarily valid because 2. Question : All sages provide both wisdom and inspiration.

Since Catherine did not go to the movies yesterday, there is not a romantic comedy playing at her local theater. The reasoning above is flawed because the evidence 5. Question : The average height of members of the high school basketball team is six feet, three inches. Jerry is on the high school basketball team, so Jerry must be taller than six feet. The argument above is flawed because it confuses 6. Question : People have claimed that Jamie’s paintings have given them the blues. Clearly this cannot be entirely correct, since many of Jamie’s paintings contain no blue at all. The argument above is flawed because the author 7. Question : Career counselor: It is best for artists to build a practical and safe career that will guarantee them a secure income, and then pursue their art in their spare time.

Which one of the following, if true, would most weaken the argument? 8. Question : The untimely death of Professor Hathaway halted his groundbreaking research into the uses of solar power. It therefore appears that Hathaway’s research will not result in practical applications. Which one of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the argument? 9. Question : Aron: The two double A batteries in my CD player are dead, so the CD player doesn’t work. My television remote control, which also uses two double A batteries, works fine.

Question : Memmie: The greater the population near a restaurant, the more potential customers it has and the greater chance its popularity will spread through word-of-mouth. O’Sullivans Restaurant just opened in the very densely populated town of Redville, so its chances for success are great. 16. Question : Barney: Last winter, I slipped on the outside stairs of PineTree Café and broke my leg. My fall was caused by ice on the stairs that the restaurant failed to remove. Since the restaurant clearly did not provide a safe atmosphere for its customers, I am justified in taking it to court. Lydia: Unwarranted lawsuits are sweeping the country—lawsuits that have no legal merit and are brought simply to make lawyers and their clients rich. If this trend continues, soon our legal system will be swamped to the point where it won’t be able to administer justice to people who truly deserve it. You therefore should drop your case against PineTree Café. The speakers above appear to disagree on which one of the following points? 17.

Question : Looking to increase the profits of his lemonade stand, Johann doubled the price of a cup of lemonade from 25 cents to 50 cents. This clearly shows Johann’s lack of business sense, for now he’ll almost certainly sell fewer cups at the new price and therefore make less money than before. 21. Question : The president spoke to 19 congressmen from Texas to encourage them to vote for a bill.

Comprehensive Lesson Plan You will create a comprehensive lesson plan to teach a fundamental skill for an early childhood physical education class (Pre-K to 3rd grade) by revising and adding to the plan you created in Week Two. Start by reviewing and assessing that the skill(s) in your lesson plan are developmentally appropriate by visiting The National Association for Sports and Physical Education (NASPE). Your lesson plan should include the following components (note that Sections 1 and 2 are the same as the Week Two lesson plan; just be sure to include revisions and changes). 1. Title Page 2. Section 1: Lesson Information o Grade level (specify age/grade) o Estimated level of developmental stage for this age/grade o Number of students o Fundamental skill to be taught o State standard (see the list of NASPE standards and indicate which state) 3. Section 2: Lesson Introduction 4. Provide a brief description of the lesson 5. Create a student learning objective (e.g. “As result of this lesson, students will be able to demonstrate _________”) Describe your system for classroom management and student grouping (e.g. class rules, consequences, rewards, and organization of the class during the activity) Describe the equipment needed and the environment (e.g. classroom, gym, outdoors, etc.) 1. Section 3: Lesson Procedure Create a script for what the teacher would say while teaching the lesson and describe the following: 5.

Choose a different location to discuss (e.g. a smaller classroom as opposed to a gym) § Several children from a different grade are temporarily joining this class for this particular lesson 6. Reference pageInclude five to seven outside resources. Your title page, lesson plan, and reference page should be in APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

Play vs. Sports. This week you will reflect on the debate of organized sports vs. unstructured free play. Over the years, parents, teachers, and researchers have weighed the advantages and disadvantages of each in consideration as to what is most appropriate for young children. In this discussion forum you will research the issues and then offer the pros and cons for both organized sport and unstructured free play in the following categories: Cost of equipment and participation Safety and injuries Relevance within a school environment Inclusion of children with special needs Developing relationships within the community Home/school connection
The Four S’s. Read the following scenario that describes the game of Red Rover (an activity in the hall of shame!). Reflect on how this game violates the Four S’s as outlined in Chapter 8: safe, success, satisfying, and skill appropriate. Two teams face each other across half of a basketball court and take turns calling players over from the opposite side. After Team A decides who it wants to challenge, the members join hands to form a long chain and call for Team B to “send Frank over.” Frank then runs as fast as possible to either break through or dive under the chains formed by Team A. If Frank fails to break through, he becomes part of Team A. If he succeeds, he returns to his team together with the two players of Team A who were at the point he broke through. Team B now calls over a player from Team A.
Class Environments. Read in Chapter 9 about Autonomy Supportive Environments in the classroom. Review Table 9.3 on the comparison of a controlling environment and an autonomy supportive environment. For your initial post, create a model for a physical education lesson that is being taught in a controlling environment. Explain in detail how the task is introduced, taught, and assessed. You must include the following criteria: Name of task Type of authority in decision making Recognition of achievement Grouping of children Evaluation Time constraints

Review several scholarly sources that offer information on the issue. Include a short summary of the issue in your initial post. Also address the following questions: 1. What are the advantages and/or disadvantages of this issue in regard to motor development? 2. Is this issue a more recent concern, or has it been an ongoing issue for many years? Explain. 3. Who (or what) has contributed most to minimizing the negative effects concerning this issue? Finally, include at least one reputable website that offers strategies and/or resources to counter the negative effects of the issue. Explain why you included this source.
