11PE :1.1 Reflections - Zumba

  • Explain the physical activity you participated in. 
The physical activity my class and I participated in was Zumba which is a dancing fitness programme. In this activity you watch a video of a Zumba instructor dancing to music which then you must follow their moves though out the song for an over all work out that involves both music and dancing.

  • What level of effort and engagement were you participating at during today's physical activity? Why? (grade your self NA, A, M and refer to marking criteria)  
(Early on in today's physical lesson I would had graded my effort and engagement a NA for not participating at all). But my level of effort and engagement by the end of the lesson I would mark myself a A for participating and trying(marking criteria - Being organised and prepared for the activity, Being actively involved in the task and Attempting to improve my level of performance.

  • What were three factors that influenced your participation? 
(choose from the list below, and put a + or - beside the three factors to show whether it positively or negatively influenced your participation).

  • Explain how these factors affected your participation (with specific examples)
1.  (Challenge - ) Challenge negatively influenced my participation because it was a bit of a challenge to follow the dance moves of the instructors on each of the videos.

2. (Skill - ) Skill negatively influenced my participation because I don't have much skill when it comes to things like dancing and i'm sure many of my other class mates would agree that they don't either.

3. (Equipment + ) Equipment positively influenced my participation because I remembered to bring my P.E gear and it was appropriate to the activity we were participating at.

  • How could you increase your (or your peers) participation in this activity
I could have been involved from the start and encouraged my peers to join in as well and realised that even though it would have meant me stepping out of my comfort zone if everyone else was doing it it wouldn't matter.

Kia Ora Jack,
It is great to read your post about Zumba. I really like the fact that you have given an honest reflection about your participation.
Your post reminded me of my first Zumba lesson... what a mess that was! haha! I was going right and the others were going left - it would have been a funny video! Luckily I persevered and now am able to follow the moves.
Have you thought about adding images or short videos to make your blog post more interesting for the reader?
I look forward to reading more of your posts!

Your honesty about your discomfort doing Zumba is very refreshing, Jack. When brave people step out of their comfort zone, they grow in confidence.

Heya, Your piece is really interesting, it's really descriptive and it shows. The participation part reminds me when I tried my best in the Cantamath Competition and I only got a Participation award.
Does not doing Zumba effect your health?
