Original Study


Volleyball is one of the most important courses for second-year students in the Faculties of Physical Education and Sports Science. When the researcher followed the learning process of this material, he noticed a weakness in learning the ability to hit the breaking ball in volleyball. As a result, the researcher decided to employ the strategy (M.U.R.D.E.R.) in teaching students how to smash hits in volleyball. Which have an effect on innovation and attract the learner's attention, so he wanted to demonstrate it in volleyball teaching and measure its impact on skill learning within the research. The research's goal is to:

  1. Elaboration of a teaching program, using the (M.U.R.D.E.R.) strategy, for learning the skill of playing volleyball, in the second-level students at the College of Physical Education and Sports Sciences of Al-Qasim Green College.
  2. Understanding the impact of the educational program applying the (M.U.R.D.E.R.) strategy in learning the hitting skills in volleyball for second-level students at the faculty of Physical Education and Sports Sciences of Al-Qasim Green College.

The researcher applied the experimental method by designing two equal groups, the control group and the experimental group with a pretest and a posttest, to fit the nature of the study. Simple randomization with a number of (30) students divided into two groups, the control group, and the experimental group.
