Health and Physical Education
Years 9 and 10
Response to stimulus: Emotional responses
Summary of task
As part of a unit of work about respectful relationships, students explored how emotional responses can impact on how people interact with each other and the decisions and behaviours they make in a range of situations.
Students were asked to write two different endings to an unfinished story and analyse the contextual factors that may have led to each character’s response and the outcome of each response for Chris and Sam’s relationship.
This assessment task relates to the focus area: relationships and sexuality.
By the end of Year 10, students critically analyse contextual factors that influence identities, relationships, decisions and behaviours. They analyse the impact attitudes and beliefs about diversity have on community connection and wellbeing. They evaluate the outcomes of emotional responses to different situations. Students access, synthesise and apply health information from credible sources to propose and justify responses to health situations. Students propose and evaluate interventions to improve fitness and physical activity levels in their communities. They examine the role physical activity has played historically in defining cultures and cultural identities.
Students demonstrate leadership, fair play and cooperation across a range of movement and health contexts. They apply decision-making and problem-solving skills when taking action to enhance their own and others’ health, safety and wellbeing. They apply and transfer movement concepts and strategies to new and challenging movement situations. They apply criteria to make judgements about and refine their own and others’ specialised movement skills and movement performances. They work collaboratively to design and apply solutions to movement challenges.
