DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTION/ ADAPTATIONS/ INTERVENTIONS
(Learning Styles, Students with Special Needs, Cultural Differences, ELL)
Substitute a yarn/ whiffle ball/ foam ball for safety reasons.
Have students use a tee to hold the ball while they swing
Cross-curricular connections:

PROCEDURES: Introduction/ Lesson Set
Students will come in and set in the spots, take roll, get dressed, stretch, demonstrate lesson.
PROCEDURES: Body & Transitions
I. Hitting
a. Have students practice getting into the batters box with the proper stance
b. Have students work on striding out with the proper foot ex. Closest foot toward the pitcher
c. Students practice the three main steps in hitting (load, squash the bug, and test the ice)
d. Have students work on taking their hand to the ball
ii. Hitting on a tee
a. Have students take their hands to the ball
b. Watch the ball all the way onto the bat
PROCEDURES: Closure
Gather material, light cool down stretch, change clothes, then back to their spots
ASSESSMENT: Diagnostic
See the starting point on the students to find out where they stand
ASSESSMENT: Formative
Watch the students actions to determine if they were following the directions
ASSESSMENT: Summative
Give the students an unknowingly pre and post test. How many times out of ten the student could
throw to their teammates chest before and after the lesson, and then give the same test after the
lesson. Ex. 6/10 meaning the student managed to hit the ball 6 out of a total of 10 times.

MATERIALS
1 softball per 2 people
Gym/ open area with enough room to hit the ball with some distance
EXTENDED ACTIVITIES
If Student Finishes Early: Have students continue to do skill competitions (mix up new challenges for
students to perform.
If Lesson Finishes Early: Have challenges for students to compete with one another for consistency and
distance
If Technology Fails:
Use teacher and student demonstrations
POST-TEACHING
Reflections: Observe students strengths and weaknesses, these can be tought the following lesson and a
refresher lesson before games.
Data Based Decision Making: Keep a chart for students effort compared to their ability to perform the
activity. This will determine how the lesson went compared to if the lesson will need adjusted and re-
taught.
