EDU 255 - Jumping into Lab B

 Jump Rope Teaching Assignments

Why jump rope? After all there is only one way to jump rope, right? WRONG! There is an incredible amount of things you can do with a jump rope! The jump rope packet is a valuable tool to break down jump roping into progressions. It gives you (the teacher) the opportunity to focus in on specific skills, and break them down into simple cues for your students to work on. Lab B will be based on the jump rope packet, and will give you the opportunity to focus on the critical teaching elements including: introduction, hook, signal for attention, cues, and demonstration. So brush up your jump rope skills rockers and great ready to jump into lab B!
