The an athlete may remember the action of kicking

The cognitivist theory portrays learning as a behavioural
change based on the gaining of information about the environment. Ojose (2008)
said that Jean Piaget invented the four stages of child development
(Sensorimotor Stage, Preoperational Stage, Concrete Operations Stage and Formal
Operations Stage).   His stages of
cognitive development suggested that people are not able of carrying out
specific assignments or understand certain ideas until they reach a certain
level of intellectual growth. Progression from one Piaget stage to the next is
achieved after they are exposed to relevant stimuli and experiences. My role as
a coach is to simplify learning by providing a variation of experiences which
gives chances for learners to explore and experiment, thereby encouraging new
understandings. This is the reason I said they can use a variety of short or
long passes (Some situations require a short pass while others require a long
pass) Also, decreasing the amount of space they have will provide them with a
different experience as it requires them to think quicker.

The second Theorist is Bruner and he came up with the Spiral
Curriculum. Marker and Schiever (2008) said a spiral curriculum is when people
will see the same theme throughout their life, with each encounter increasing
in complexity and reinforcing previous learning. Research by Mason, Graham and
Johnston-Wilder (2005) suggest Jerome Bruner proposed three modes of
representation. Enactive appears first. It involves encoding action based
information and storing it in our memory. Iconic is next and this is where
information is stored visually in the form of images. Finally, Symbolic develops
last. This is where information is stored in the form of a code.  Enactive representation happens in my lesson
plan in the form of movement as a muscle memory. Example, an athlete may
remember the action of kicking a ball. Also, in this lesson plan Iconic
representation occurs because learners will build a mental picture in their
head of how different types of combination play and patterns keep possession.

The third theorist is called Kurt Lewin. Kaminski (2008)
said He came up with three steps to improve learning: unfreezing, changing and
refreezing. The process of change involves making the awareness that a change
is needed, then making the new, desired level of behaviour and finally,
solidifying that new behaviour. One thing that is important during the
unfreezing stage so that students can become informed about the change is
communication.  During the changing step
people begin to learn the new behaviours, processes and ways of thinking.
Finally, freezing is an act reinforcing, stabilizing and solidifying the new
state after the change. This method can be used in my lesson plan. For example,
if I see leaners overcrowding a specific area while trying to keep possession I
will stop it and introduce a new idea which is making the most out of the space
you have. Furthermore, I can freeze the game at any time and introduce a new
method which gets players moving and passing more effectively (triangles)
