This resource uses the ‘TGfU’ idea to teach rounders in physical education. The area should be split into 3/4 different areas so each game can be played safely at one time. Included is a table covering the basic tactics in rounders. There are also tactic cards for four one hour lessons. Start by giving the cards to students to learn about the game. Get them to look at the situations, then answer the questions. Play a game, then ask the students more questions. Then try a practice session and move into a game situation. This helps improve understanding of Irish Rounders / Softball and gets students thinking about what they should do as a batter or fielder. The questions and practice situations are also included. Both PDF and Word formats are available.
The TGFU (Teaching Games for Understanding) teaching model is used to generalize games and focus more on the tactical and technical skills that are needed to play similar games. This mobility lesson is for invasion games which include sports such as football (soccer), handball, basketball, hockey, etc.
