BTEC Sport- Year 10
W/c 1st February 2021
Write a couple of sentences in your own words explaining what is meant by the term ‘Motivation’.
Read through slides 24-28 on the powerpoint (located in Teams) to familiarise yourselves with the different types of motivation. Once you’ve done this I want you to interview any family members about what might have motivated them to take part in sport either in the past or present. If this is not possible then try and think about your own levels of motivation to play sport or be physically active and make notes as to either what does or doesn’t motivate you to willingly participate.
Plenary (end task)
Think about external ways in which people can be rewarded for their sports performance. It could be anything ranging from swimming certificates for young children to end of season awards. Write a short paragraph explaining whether you think rewarding people is an effective form of motivation or not and state why.
W/c 25th January 2021
Read slides 16 to 20 covering an overview of different Views of Personality. You now need to describe the strengths and limitations of each theory. Try to write a paragraph for each theory (trait, situational and interactional). Once you’ve completed this, your final task is to write a conclusion stating which theory you think is most likely to be true and why.
W/c 18th January 2021

Then read slide 15 on Observations. Once completed I want you to watch video 1 and observe how the athlete behaves, making notes at the same time. For example, does the athlete appear to be confident (extroverted) or shy (introverted). Follow the same steps for the remaining two videos.
