What substantial writing projects will your students complete during the course?
Students will complete three substantial writing projects throughout the course of the semester. The first, worth 10% of their total grade, is a 1,000 word philosophical analysis of the role sport/physical activity has played in their life. Students are required to use inductive and intuitive reasoning in this analysis. Students receive instructor feedback, but do not complete a revision for this assignment. The second paper, worth 10% of their total grade, is a 1,500-word essay that requires students to identify and philosophically analyze a sport-related issue. This paper requires students to research this topic and provide peer reviewed references to support their analysis. The third paper, worth 15% of their total grade, is a 2,000-word ethical analysis of a sport-related issue. As with paper 2, this paper also requires students to research this topic and provide peer reviewed references to support their analysis.
What kinds of feedback will students receive from the instructor, and what opportunities will they be given to revise their writing?
Students receive detailed written feedback on all three papers from the instructor. Students are required to complete one revision on papers 2 and 3. Not only do students receive detailed written feedback, but students are encouraged to meet with professor or teaching assistant for verbal feedback, if necessary.
What amount of the final course grade will come from the written work (minimum one-third for a three-hour course)?
The three papers comprise 35% of the final course grade.
