Working on a classroom progression

Today we worked on the progression of ultimate frisbee from beginner on. There are still more students to go (me being last) and we must work upon what previous students have covered. Topics covered thus far include:

Back-hand throw through a hula hoop
Catching techniques
Pivoting to get around a defender
Moving to catch the frisbee as a receiver from a teamate
2 versus 2 in a small boundary area

As for what I will cover, I still must look at the final rules of ultimate frisbee so that we can move our way into game play.

Another topic covered today was test taking. Different forms of tests along with their advantages and disadvantages. Options ranging from true/false, multiple choice, essay, and short answer were covered.
