Assessment Summary
During the unit, students will receive instruction in the classroom and on the court. Visual and hands-on learning will engage in everyone’s
learning realm. Handouts will be given out to learn the techniques and the steps taken to perform them. Once the skills are learned, students
will perform a skills test to see their status. At the end of the unit on volleyball, students will be required to make a PowerPoint slide on the
techniques of forearm pass, overhand pass, serve, attack and block. Groups of 4 students will be made. Minimum of 7 slides. The
PowerPoint should include: the first slide should be labeled with your group names and the second slide should include a brief history of
volleyball. The technique slides should include: Nicknames of the techniques (Forearm pass – dig pass – bump pass), the way(s) the skill is
used on the court, for example the forearm pass is used to receive low, hard-driven balls approaching at waist height or lower. The pass is used
to receive the serve, free balls, off-speed spikes, and sometimes, to set a ball to the attacker. Skillful use of the forearm pass made obvious its
use for playing balls extremely close to the floor. Going for these low balls became known as "digging the ball out," giving rise to the term
"dig.") and steps to performing the skill. The students will also complete a crossword puzzle.
Day 1: Introduction and Basic Rules
Students will learn the nature and purpose of volleyball. They will be taught the history of volleyball. They will be introduced to the
equipment, the court and the basic rules. A short introduction training session to pre-test of the forearm pass, overhand pass, serve, attack and
block will be administered.
Day 2: Fundamental Skills
Students will learn more basic rules to volleyball and the scoring procedures. Movement skills will be taught such as low position and
medium position. The shuffle step and forward/backward movement will be taught for the low position, and the shuffle step, run
lateral/forward, and backpedal movements will be taught for medium position. The PowerPoint assignment rubric and instructions will be
given.
Day 3: Forearm Pass
Students will learn the forearm pass. Serve reception, free-ball pass, side to target and back to target will be taught.
Day 4: Overhand Pass
Students will learn the overhand pass. Set forward and free-ball pass will be taught. The forearm pass will be incorporated into drills so the

student will progress smoothly.
Day 5: Serve
Students will learn how to serve in volleyball. They will learn two variations: underhand and overhand floater. The forearm pass, overhand
pass and serve will be incorporated in drills also.
Day 6: Attack and Block
Students will learn how to attack and spike the ball. Students will learn the spike roll and spike. Students will learn how to block an attack or
pass. Students will learn the strategies and techniques about blocking for offensive and defensive play. The forearm pass, overhand pass,
serve and attack will be incorporated in drills also.
Day 7: Modified Games
Students will play modified games. 1 on 1, 2 on 2, 3 on 3. They will use a small court- ½ wide front court. The serve will be tossed in the air.
Various types on contact will be used: forearm pass, overhand pass, serve, attack and block. A crossword puzzle will be given for the students
to complete.
Day 8: Modified Games
Students will play modified games. 1 on 1, 2 on 2, 3 on 3. They will use a small court- ½ wide front courts. The serve will be tossed in the
air. Various types on contact will be used: forearm pass, overhand pass, serve, attack and block.
Day 9: Strategies and Systems
Students will learn strategies: three contacts, make opponents play the ball, and serve in court 80-90 percent of the time. Three contact points
are passing to center front, set to left front and spike roll/spike. Five-person, “W” serve reception pattern, free-ball defense and 6-6 pr 4-2
offense.
Day 10
The pre-test, now post-test, will be administered. Content knowledge and skill based. A skills test of the forearm pass, overhand pass, serve,
attack and block will be administered.
Unit Details
Prerequisite Skills
To begin the unit, students need to have good communication skills and the motivation to learn a new sport and techniques.
Communication in learning a new sport helps to engage learning with all students and allows for a better understanding of the
sport. Good physical condition of the students is needed. Students should not be injured or sick.
Instructional Procedures
Classroom
When students are instructed to be in the classroom, they will enter the room quietly and wait for lecture to start. If they have
any questions, they should always raise their hand. Handouts and drawings will be used frequently so pencil and paper is
needed each class period. These materials will help them with the PowerPoint presentation and crossword puzzle.
Court
To start off a session, running, stretching, sprinting and jumping will be performed. Depending on the training session,
demonstration and instruction will start a new skill. Students should bring the notes taken during the classroom session so they
are able to review over them after demonstration. Drills will be performed for repetition. Match play will also be performed.
Accommodations for Differentiated Instruction
Special Needs
Students
Nonnative Speakers
Students with special needs can participate in sitting volleyball which allows those who are of a minor disability
to participate in an activity with those are more severely handicapped, which creates an environment based on
equality and love of the sport rather than severity of diseases. With no expensive equipment or wheelchair
modification, sitting volleyball is truly available to all members of the disabled community. Different types of
balls, net sizes and court sizes can be made to accommodate students.
For nonnative speakers, I will use visual demonstrations and use handouts with their language and
demonstrations on them. I will practice their language and try to get the basics of their language down. This
will allow them to have a basis and try to work through conversation with me. I will try to speak clearly and
pronounce your words correctly, recognize that people wrongly think that turning up the volume somehow
creates instant understanding, avoid running words together and avoid using contractions or short forms.

Students
For gifted/talented students, they will be allowed to pick up equipment while other students are still performing
the tasks. If the student cannot comprehend the technique taught that day then I will have a video of volleyball
or handouts for them to look over and complete.
