Based On The Chosen Topic/article You Must Develop A Research Question. The Question Is What You Will Be Answering In Your Paper.
I have attached the reading required below, if you have any questions at all, please ask.
Example Research Questions:
1) Why did games and physical competitions play a central role in Indigenouscommunities in early Canada?
2) Why has interest in professional baseball decreased over the past 10 years?
3) How was Montreal able to dominate the early organization of Canadian sport?
Tips: Make sure your question is not too narrow. For example: In what year was Ben Johnsonstripped of his Olympic medals because of a doping infraction?
Make sure your question is not too broad. For example: How has sport changed in Canada overtime?
You will need to read some of the literature surrounding your topic prior to developing andrefining your research question.
You must have a focused research question. Vague statements of intent such as I would like toinvestigate violence in sport are inappropriate and should be avoided. It must be a question!
Find Three to Five (3-5) Additional Academic Sources (for a total of 4-6sources):
The sources you use for this project must be secondary sources that areacademic/peer reviewed.
Examples of these types of sources include (1) journal articles fromacademic publications such as the Journal of Sport History, Sport HistoryReview, The International Journal of the History of Sport, Journal ofOlympic History, the Journal of Sport Philosophy, etc. (2) Academic booksthat have extensive references (preferably with an academic publisher).
As you identify your 4-6 (four to six) secondary sources, you will develop a thesisstatement. This is the answer to your research question, and the central argumentyou will present in the paper.
You will then write a short essay. The essay must be written from a humanitiesperspective (for example if you choose the Crowther article, your essay will behistorical in nature drawing on historical sources, or if you choose the Huizingareading your essay will be philosophical in nature drawing on philosophical sourcesetc). The essay will advance a central claim (your thesis statement) and offerevidence from your sources in support of that argument. The essay must have anintroduction (one paragraph of at least four sentences, that includes your thesisstatement), a body of at least three paragraphs, and a conclusion (one paragraph ofat least four sentences).
