Part II: Development

Attention Getter


I will begin the class with an icebreaker.


Quiz the Teacher

This is an icebreaker for the students to learn a little about me. Some students find being asked lots of questions boring and repetitive, so this gives them the chance to ask the questions. For the first fifteen minutes of the lesson students will ask me any appropriate question. This is a simple and effective way of getting students who don’t respond well to questions to interact and gain interest. This also shows my human side and let’s students see me as a person rather than just an irritating instructor.


Pool Tag

This swimming ice breaker game is good for the students to learn about each other. It helps the group interact and get to know each other and also encourages short bursts of swimming. I will Pick someone in the group to be the ‘tag’ and explain that they have to swim and tag as many people as possible. When a person is tagged they have to share something about themselves and then they are out. The last person to be tagged wins and is then the ‘tag’. This will continue until everyone has been the ‘tag’.

After these icebreakers I will begin class.


I will relate their asking questions to them being able to speak in front of an audience, which they will have to do when they teach their swimming classes.


I will relate their comfort level swimming around in the pool to feeling comfortable in the water for their lessons.


Detailed Input of Content


The following is an outline of the content that will be covered on a daily bases.


30 minutes of homework review - Students will share their information with the class, be it by video, written work or verbal explanation. This will help them with being able to present in front of an audience.

1 hour of instructor-led lecturing - I will explain a chapter in the manual. I will use videos, safety equipment, and recordings of the students as aids to help with visual learning. Example: Water safety, treading water, breast stroke, back stroke, rhythmic breathing, back float, what to do in emergency situations, and how to teach a class.

1hour of class discussion, question, answer session -

Students will have an opportunity to work with each other and ask me questions to help get a better understanding of the material just presented. This will give them immediate feedback on their understanding of the material.

20 minutes of class break.

30 minutes of group in class activity - Students will have a work book in which they will work out of. The work book will collate with the manual. They will be sectioned off in to groups of three’s. This will foster interaction between the students.

30 minutes of individual video work - They will view videos of proper swimming techniques and previous recordings of themselves. This will give the students alone time to concentrate on what they feel they need help in.

10 minutes of delivering homework assignment - I will go over the homework assignment and ask if there are any question about understanding it.

30 minutes to go to swimming pool and change.
