5. Materials and Aids-

6. Procedures/Methods-

A. Introduction-

At the beginning of class I will demonstrate, with the help of other student, the goal for this lesson.

B. Development-

I will have one court designated for our serving lesson & the other 3 courts will have 2 on 2 games going on. One service area will be marked with 3, 2, or 1 pt. according to difficulty of area. I will split the class up into 3 groups. One group at serving court to get evaluated & the other groups will be playing pickleball games. Each student will get 25 serves, only the highest 20 serves will be recorded. I will record each serves point total and add them up later to give them a rating (needs improvement, average, very good). Each group will take approx. 10-15 mins.

C. Practice-

I will check to see if students are using correct technique for serving while they are playing games.

D. Independent Practice-

This will also take place during game play. If I see improper technique being used I will remind them, individually, how to do it the correct way.

F. Checking for understanding-

I will be recording each students point total at the serving court. Serves will not count if improper serving technique is used. I will be constantly reminding them what the proper techniques are attempting a serve.

G. Closure-

A minute or two before class ends I will reinforce the importance of placement of serves in order to make it more difficult for your opponent to return the ball. I will also briefly go over the proper technique for serving.
7. Evaluation-
Each student will serve 25 balls. I will record each serves point total & take the 20 highest serves. All 20 serves will be totaled up and placed in a category; Needs Improvement, Average, or Very Good. 0-19= Needs Improvement, 20-59= Average, 60-80= Very Good.
