The American sport and entertainment enterprise; background, influences and trends; collegiate and professional sport organizations; ownership and unionization; media portrayals. This course is open to majors and nonmajors. Learning Outcomes Students will examine how sport influences and is influenced by society. Students will critically reflect upon the positive and negative consequences of sport in our society. Students will examine the reciprocal relationship between sport and socialization, economics, and religion. Students will recognize the relationship between topics studied in class and examples observed in current sport and entertainment events. Required Texts: Woods, Ronald B., Social Issues in Sport, Third Edition. Champaign, IL: Human Kinetics, 2016. Notes and some class announcements will be posted on Blackboard. You are responsible for checking Blackboard on a daily basis for important class information. Additional library and handout readings may be assigned. In addition, students are expected to stay informed on current issues which may be pertinent to the course material. This may be accomplished by reading current newspapers and magazines such as The State, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Time, Newsweek, Sports Illustrated, etc. University policy requires that you miss no more than 10% of scheduled classes (3 for this class, whether excused or unexcused). Excessive absences (more than 3) will result in a reduction in your grade or failure for the class. Quizzes (whose scores may be applied to the next test) may be given to check attendance and student understanding. Missed quizzes will not be made up and will count as zero. If you are serious about doing well in this class, you need to attend regularly. Page 1 Four (4) examinations will be administered during the course of the semester. Each examination will count 25% of your final grade with appropriate adjustments for excessive absences. Failure to attend an examination without PRIOR instructor approval will result in a grade of zero for that examination. An excused absence for an examination will result in your final examination counting 50% of your final exam. There will be very few reasons for being excused from a scheduled exam. SPTE 110 – SPORT & ENTERTAINMENT IN AMERICAN LIFE Fall 2016 Section 001 T & Th 11:40 am – 12:55 pm WMBB Nursing 231 Cell phones in ring mode or other noise making devices are not permitted in class (unless under special circumstances PREAPPROVED by the instructor). Students bringing cell phones in ring mode to the class may be asked to leave for the day and counted as absent. Students violating this rule more than once a semester may not be eligible to take the next test. Please treat this class like a business environment – be professional. If you are late or must leave early, enter and exit the class quietly, so as not to disturb the instructor and other students. It would be a good idea to let the professor know that you need to leave early and the reason for this. Sleeping is not allowed in class. Course behavior (willingness to orally participate, number of people coming late and leaving early each class, level of respect shown to the instructor and other students, etc.) impacts the difficulty of the exams.
