Section 2 – Guided Response (Post by Day 5):
Respond to two classmates.  Review the activities and skills included on their charts.  Use one of the activities listed on their charts to create a situational example in story form, such as a case study.  Within your story, include a complication in which they would need to adapt the lesson.  This complication can be an environmental, individual, or task-related constraint.  Environmental constraints are faulty/missing equipment, weather, space, time, etc.  Individual constraints include any difficulty or disability that the student might encounter.  A task related constraint includes complications incorporating the activity or lesson to be taught. 

Conclude with a question as to how this lesson could be adapted in the given situation.

For example: They might have chosen to teach a 6-year-old (individual) to hit a ball (task) off a tee and provide them with a light weight, fat barreled bat (environment).  You can create an individual constraint such as “When you are teaching a class of 6-year-olds how to hit a ball off of a tee, you notice a child is having difficulty holding the bat. If the bat is too large for the child, how could you adapt the activity for this individual?”  You could also create a situation in which a child has already mastered this activity and is ready to advance or even create an example with inclement weather or faulty/missing equipment, etc. Be creative!
