The students will recognise how media and important people in the community influence personal attitudes, beliefs, decisions and behaviours.
Recap the previous lesson. As a class, brainstorm television shows, television ads, media personalities, magazine ads, important community members etc. that are targeted at students age range, and provide either a positive or a negative view of physical activity. Discuss the occurrence of positive attitudes toward physical health and fitness as opposed to negative attitudes towards physical health and fitness.
“How often do you see your parent / carer / other important person in your life participating in regular physical activity?” Allow some time for students to reflect on their answer before asking the students to reflect on the following sets of questions:
Watch the short video ‘You can be a champion’ and hear from some AIS athletes about what has influenced them during their sporting careers.
Discuss the role that media, family and important people in the community have in influencing personal attitudes, beliefs, decisions and behaviours towards sport and physical activity.
Students are to research one famous Australian sporting hero, discussing how that person has an influence on them personally.
