There are two questions. Please use two attachments.

1.The article critique assignment investigates professional journals and current relatable information. You should locate an article(s) pertaining to how the societal issues of gender, race, and ethnicity have impacted sports. The article(s) should be less than three years old.. The journal article selected for the article critique should be long enough to provide the content necessary to complete this critique. You will be expected to follow APA style and format for this critique (typed, double-spaced, Times New Roman, 12-point font, and page headers). Include the following elements in your article critique:

· Title page: Include the assignment title, the name of the school, and your name.

· Introduction: Provide a brief Introduction of your article and the connection to the topic.

· Article summary: Summarize the article. List the main points that the author has tried to establish (e.g., a numbered list). Typically, there will be three to five main points. If your article(s) is summarizing a court case, you should discuss the following points: What provision of the law was at issue? What were the facts of the case? What legal tests were applied? Were there any unusual elements in the case?

· Article critique: Critique the article. You are to provide your reaction (insightful, critical, and logical) to the points that the author tried to make. Be sure to state how this information has impacted the sports arena. A simple statement of agreement or disagreement is not sufficient. While you may make such a statement by way of introduction to your reaction, you must clearly and logically state the reasons for the position that you have taken.

· Conclusion: Provide a brief conclusion wrapping up the elements of the article and how it relates to the chapter topic.

· Reference page: Include a reference page that lists the source(s) in proper APA format.

Your article critique should be a minimum of two pages, not counting title and reference pages. Use APA format for your paper, including all references and in-text citations.

2.Opposing Viewpoints Using the CSU Online Library, locate two selections on sports and politics events or two selections on sports and religion events. Depending on the events you have chosen (sports/politics or sports/religion), ensure that there are two opposing viewpoints (similarities and differences) to review. Write a two-page report summarizing the events and identify the similarities and differences. Below are some possible questions for your essay:

· Who was involved?

· What were the key points/arguments?

· Were these points valid and/or logical?

· How did politics/religion play a role?

· What was the outcome?

· Did the outcome involve issues of money and power?

· How did this affect sports?

· Did the decision lead to better management of sport or sport play? If so, in what way?

· Which views do you support? Why?

· Which views do you refute? Why?

You will be expected to follow APA style and format for this paper. Include the following elements in your essay:

· Title page: Include the assignment title, the name of the school, and your name.

· Introduction: Provide a brief introduction of your selections and the connection to the topic.

· Body: Use headers where appropriate.

o Section comparing and contrasting first selection (similarities/differences)

o Section comparing and contrasting second selection (similarities/differences)

· Conclusion: Provide a brief conclusion wrapping up the elements of the selections and how they relate to the chapter topic.

· Reference page: Include a reference page that lists the sources in proper APA format. If you also used content from the textbook, be sure to include this as a source in your reference page as well. It is important that you provide the reader with enough information about your article so he or she will be able to locate the article.

Your essay should be a minimum of two pages, not counting title and reference pages. Use APA format for your paper, including all references and in-text citations.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes. Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages. Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor. The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
