Other Work Samples for:

Shane has demonstrated an adequate level of competence in the fundamental movement skill of overarm throwing. In preparing to throw the ball, Shane takes a small step towards the target with eyes focused and stands slightly side-on. The stance is inconsistent so the hips and shoulders do not always rotate, and there is little follow-through. The throws lack power or direction, and would be enhanced by a stronger downward, backward arc. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade C standard at the end of Stage 2.
