Module 2 topic reflection 3 (10 points) will be evaluated on the following criteria. Each of the criteria will be graded as complete, incomplete, or absent.
Synthesis (8 points)
Synthesize your personal empirical (lived) experiences (Module 2 topic reflection 1) with race, ethnicity and/or religion with your selected scholarly source (Module 2 topic reflection 2) (approx. 250 words; paragraph format; in the following order)
Paragraph 1 (approx. 100 words)
2 points; Briefly (1-2 sentences) re-state the reflection you provided in Part 2 (see below in blue) of your Module 2 topic reflection 1.
First, reflect on your answers in regards to your self-identified race, ethnicity, national origin, first language, and/or religious or spiritual affiliation group memberships (e.g. were they assigned as an identity “you think about most often”, “you think about least often”, “you would like to learn more about”, “has the strongest effect on how you perceive yourself”, “has the greatest effect on how others perceive you”, all of the above, some of the above, or none of the above), and discuss how your answers compare to those provided about your gender, sex, sexual orientation, and/or physical, emotional, developmental (dis)ability group memberships.
How then, do these ‘effects’ apply to your personal experiences with sport, recreation, and physical activity? Discuss an experience (or experiences) that you have personally had, have personally witnessed, or have been experienced by people you know, that illustrates the role race, ethnicity, religion etc. plays in your sporting life. How have, or might, the intersection of your gender, sex, sexual, or ability identity further impact these roles? (e.g. compound or contradict discrimination or privilege).
2 points; Discuss (in 2-3 sentences) the way(s) in which your selected scholarly source illustrates others’ sporting experiences with race, ethnicity and/or religion
e.g. briefly revisit your Module 2 topic reflection 3 submission
Paragraph 2 ( approx. 150 words)
Discuss the way(s) in which your selected scholarly source provides further insights to, and understandings of, your own personal sporting experience(s) with race, ethnicity, and/or religion
Connect your personal experience(s) to key points from your selected scholarly source to re-examine your initial reflection (e.g. how does it allow you to further critically reflect on your sporting experiences?)
You may want to revisit what you wrote for the critique portion of your Module 2 topic reflection 2 contribution (e.g. how will the article be useful to reflect on your own sporting experience(s)?)
Support (2 points)
Support the connections between your personal experience and selected scholarly source through paraphrasing (Author, Year) or direct citations (Author, Year, p. #).
