(or individual project)
As a basic guide, the project should be 4 - 6 typed,
double-spaced pages (APA style), and should contain a title page, a table
of contents (introduction, description of institution, location, name
etc..., discussion, conclusions) and references (on a separate page).
Utilizing the interview, library, and Web search methods, find as much
chronological data regarding the elementary, high school, or junior
college you attended, and write a historical account of your selected
institution's physical education and varsity program (Provide answers to
questions such as, but not limited to: When was the school established?
How did the student population change over time (in case it did), and how
is this change related to past and future of this institution? How did it
get its name? How was/is title IX implemented in varsity programs? Were
there, or are there still inequalities between the men's and the women's
programs? How do current and former students and faculty feel about PE,
varsity athletics and title IX, and academics...? Compare past and present
student body and student athletes graduation and academic performance
statistics (if available). Mention personalities, such as, PE teachers,
coaches, principals, teachers, distinguihed alumni etc...You may use
information provided by your school district or school historian, but make
sure to add to it and expand on it. Retired teachers may know more and may
also be able to provide you with an invaluable primary source of important
insights). Feel free to visit my office (PE 231) and review any of the
many good sample papers prepared by former PE 260 students).
