Here's a detailed interactive spoken example of the EAPI for OCR A LEVEL PE which will enable your students to fully understand the requirements of and prepare thoroughly for this important part of the non examined assessment (NEA).
This engaging audio and visual resource puts your students firmly in the 'learning driving seat' and allows them to have complete control of their own learning and understanding by easily navigating to any section of the EAPI, whether it be strengths and weaknesses, progressive practices and coaching points or application of theory.
Providing your students with a step by step guide to the structure of the EAPI, this resource emphasises the use of key terminology and gives detailed spoken exemplar responses for each section, which include:
⁃ strengths and weaknesses (skills, fitness, tactics & overall success)
⁃ identification of a chosen weakness including justification and action plan for improvement
⁃ time frame (frequency and duration)
⁃ 6 detailed progressive practices
⁃ detailed coaching points for each progressive practice
⁃ application of theory, including: movement analysis, aerobic capacity, periodisation & training cycles, muscle fibre types, skill classification, types & methods of practice, methods of guidance, types of feedback, stages of learning and social facilitation
⁃ pre and post test measures for improvement
The sport used in this example is hockey, but the principles of much of the content are generic and can be applied to any number of different sports.

A PowerPoint presentation on the attribution theory topic within the sport psychology component of the new (2016) AS and A Level PE specifications, including Weiner's model, the self-serving bias, learned helplessness, mastery orientation and attribution retraining.
Probably one of the best and most innovative teaching and learning resources around!
This is an interactive multiple choice resource using PowerPoint which will really help you assess your students' learning. Not many other multiple choice resources offer so much.
1. Exam style questions are displayed - without initially showing any possible answer. This encourages students to think about what the correct answer might be, before the responses are shown. So you can also use this resource for short answer questions.
2. Students can then click on each of the numbers to make the corresponding response appear.
3. If a student is sure that a particular response is incorrect, they can click on the corresponding number again to make the response disappear - thus helping to develop good exam technique as eliminating incorrect responses is good exam practice.
4. Students then choose which answer is correct and click on the main text of the response to receive immediate feedback about their response. If they are correct, the response turns green, however, if the response is incorrect the response turns red AND feedback about that response is provided, thus helping students move forward with their learning.
This is also an excellent resource to use for whole class teaching on the interactive whiteboard as a starter or plenary activity and it great for assessing learning.
If you are using iPads, or other tablets students can download the PowerPoint app (for free) from the App Store or Google Play. You can easily and simply push the resource to your students through Showbie.
This resource can also be put onto your school VLE allowing for rich and deep personalised learning away from the classroom.
As HoD or teacher i/c A level PE you can now be more confident than ever that every aspect of the whole two year specification is covered.
This excel spreadsheet allows you and your colleagues to quickly and easily indicate when a topic has been covered. It also allows you to track which pupils have mastered a topic, which still need more work and those who are way off the pace and require serious intervention.
Here's how to use this OCR A Level PE curriculum tracking document:
Store the tracking document in a shared folder so all A level PE teachers can access it. When a topic has been covered, teachers simply put a 'Yes' in the column against the corresponding topic, automatically turning the cell from red to green.
This is an ideal tool for small and large departments, especially those with more than one teacher teaching the same component to different classes.
You may wish to track your students' progress as well. Against the students' names, enter a 1 if their knowledge and understanding is limited and they are in need of considerable intervention, (the corresponding cell will turn red), enter a 2 if they have a reasonable understanding but still need to work on the topic (the cell will turn orange) or enter a 3 if the student has mastered the topic. Ideally, by the end of the course, all the cells should be green!
OK, so you've taught the theory (the content knowledge), but what about your students' essay writing skills?
Your students will have to write extended answers in their exams, but do they know 'what a good one looks like'?
Do they know how to construct high quality pieces of written work which fully answers the questions asked and gives appropriate examples from sport when requested.
This resource on attribution theory provides extended essay model answers to questions on Weiner's model of attribution theory and the concept of attribution retraining as well as learned helplessness and mastery orientation.
The exam style questions area:
Using practical examples explain the meaning of learned helplessness and mastery orientation. Explain how a hockey coach could promote mastery orientation in her players? (10 marks)
Using practical examples from tennis explain Weiner’s model of attribution theory. (8 marks)
They are a perfect reference to give to your students as model answers after they have attempted the questions themselves.
By working through the model answers with your students and analysing the features of the model that make it a strong response, (or how it could be improved still further!), they will be able to build up a greater appreciation of 'what a good one looks like' and what they have to do in order to produce high quality pieces of writing themselves.
Simply download this resource, select the blue boxes and delete them to reveal the full model answer responses which you can distribute to your students.
This free interactive e-learning quiz (with 30 questions) will challenge your students on a range of topics within the GCSE PE specifications.

Can your students get 100%?
Two domino sets on the classification of skill. One focusing on the subject and content knowledge required by your students for this topic and the other focusing on helping them successfully develop the skill of correctly justifying skill placements on different continua.
What a great way to introduce attribution theory!
Instead of starting this topic with direct input from yourself as the teacher, why not get your students grappling with this engaging activity designed to help them really get to grips with understanding Weiner's model of attribution theory?
Here's how it works:
Students have a brief introduction to the concept of attribution theory.
They then read the captain's match report and have to decide for themselves whether each of the underlined sentences or phrases (attributions) fall into one of the four categories: ability, effort, task difficulty or luck.
Then open the activity up for discussion amongst your students to see where they have placed each of the attributions and to check understanding and misconceptions. Because students are working out the solutions themselves and with one another richer learning and deeper understanding takes place.
Help your students develop their exam technique!
A series of colourful, motivational and interactive slides and posters designed to help your students develop successful exam technique.
A fully interactive PowerPoint and pdf posters make up this resource which can be used by teachers of any subject. A must have in helping to improve exam technique!

Using iPads or tablets you can distribute this to your students via Showbie and upload it on Explain Everything (both apps available on the App Store and Google Play). Then your students can record their explanation of the theory. When they're done, they put their work back into Showbie for you to listen to. Simple and a really great way to check how well they have grasped this theory and for you to provide valuable feedback.
There are also some scaffolded questions on this learning theory at the end of the presentation to assist students in their explanations.
What are the four stages involved in this theory?
Why is it important to get the learner’s attention?
What makes a good demonstration?
What key words could you use when describing the retention process?
What is involved in the motor production stage?
What is motivation? What can you as the coach do to promote learning?
