According to the textbook, “skill learning takes place through a predictable and consistent sequence, it is also similar to that of growth and development by how the rate of learning a skill is different across people and depends on a person’s environment as well as their previous experiences” (Hastie, 2012).
Select a complex motor skill that you are proficient as (such as bowling, riding bike, driving a car, jumping rope, etc). Explain when you first learned it and and your early experiences with this skill. Try to describe how your acquired this skill in terms of the phases discussed in Chapter 4. Then describe the progress a learner might take as they begin to master this same skill.
