History journal 3 assignment for witness

 

Theme of these readings are Bodies and Sport.

A theme is listed with it to help you organize and synthesize your thoughts on these different readings. Treat this like a short essay. Keep the following things in mind when writing:

  • I DO NOT WANT SUMMARIES OF THE ARTICLES. I know what they say and you know what they say. 
  • Consider what the readings identify about how sport was viewed and consequently practiced during a given time.
  • Think of who participated and who was excluded (i.e. the effects of gatekeepers).
  • If there is a quote you found particularly interesting or revealing from the reading, you should try to incorporate it. Keep it brief, however, this is about your thoughts, not someone else’s.
  • Overall, your entry should look at how sport was part of American society at a particular time in American history and why you think it mattered (for better or worse).
