You are required to conduct and observe some sport, either as a participant, a coach, or a spectator, in person (you cannot watch ESPN or Monday night football and have that count). This involves taking “field notes”, asking questions, developing hypotheses, and drawing conclusions from your experiences and notes. You should also create qualitative research questions to informally interview participants (players, fans, parents, referees, etc.).
You will turn in a brief description and summary of the sporting environment you observed, a critique and analysis of the sociological concepts and issues raised in it, and an overview of any research findings. You are expected to respond critically with two-three full pages (no more than three and no less than two), double-spaced, 11 point font, 1” margins, no heading. I only wantyour name at the top and nothing else.
