2 ID Final Project Mark Ellner

Heart Rate and Its Effect on Cardiovascular Endurance

Power Point was used to present how the ASSURE model helped to develop a
lesson on heart rate and its effect on cardiovascular endurance through the use of
Polar heart rate monitors.

Lesson Audience:

* 3
Through 8
Grade Students

Lesson Audiences Previous Knowledge and Learning Styles

* Students have basic knowledge of heart rate and how to find it
* Students have experience using heart rate monitors in past years.
* Students have little practical experience tracking heart rates during aerobic
* Students have little experience reading and evaluating results of monitor use.

Lesson Objectives:

* Students will properly use heart rate monitor to find heart rate while
performing an aerobic activity.
* Student will properly use heart rate monitor to find average heart rate
during an aerobic activity.
* Students will understand basic principles of heart rates and their effect on
cardiovascular endurance.

Lesson Media:

* Polar Fitness Heart Rate Monitors
* Wireless Laptop Carts
* iPod and Sound System

Lesson Activities:

* Students will put on heart rate monitors as soon as they enter the gym.
* Once monitors are on, students will take note of their resting heart rate.
* Students will then begin walking to slow tempo music. Music tempo will be
incrementally sped up with students matching the pace. Pace will level out
for 10 minutes then slowed to a cool down speed.
* At the end of aerobic activity, students will down load information onto Polar
fitness software on laptops.
* Students and teacher will review results together using graphs produced
with data collected.
3 ID Final Project Mark Ellner
* Results will be used to demonstrate effects exercise and aerobic intensity has
on your heart rate.

Lesson Evaluation

* Evaluation of objectives met will be done in 3 ways.
1) Observation
2) Printed Report of Each Students Heart Rate Results.
3) Demonstration of Proper Use of Technology.
* Evaluation of Media will be done through observation and by reviewing
monitor results.
* Evaluation of Facilitator will be done through observation and end of lesson


The ASSURE Model is a constructivist approach to training design developed by
Robert Heinich and Michael Molenda of Indiana University and James D. Russell of
Purdue University in the 1990s (Hanley 2009). ASSURE is a perfect model to use when
designing a Physical Education lesson plan. In most cases, the overall benchmarks and
outcomes have already been chosen at the district level. It is up to individual teachers to
decide what is the best way to teach those. The 6 step guide ASSURE uses takes the
teacher through each aspect of planning a lesson. ASSURE starts with looking at the
learner in detail. Nothing you plan or design is effective unless you have taken the
time to look at the learners (Culatta 2011). With all the diversity that is incorporated
into a PE class, the model does a nice job of leading the teacher to design a plan that is
student focused, allows for all types of learners, and includes proper teaching and
evaluation methods. The ASSURE Model would be useful for lesson plan design at all
levels and for all types of teaching.
