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.

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.
