Your task is to view a sports-related movie and write a brief review. Here are the steps to the assignment.
Step 1: You are to choose any movie you wish to write a report on or a movie from the list of sportsrelated movies below.
Step 2: Rent and watch the movie. Even if you have seen the movie before, you should rent it and watch it again. While viewing the movie, identify sport psychology themes that are depicted in the movie (aggression, parental involvement, goal setting, teamwork, etc.). You should probably take notes so you can remember what you saw so you can report on it later.
Step 3: Write a review of the movie. The review should be 2 to 4 double spaced pages with 1â€ margins, 12 font, and should contain the following sections:
Heading: Include the title, year, sport(s) depicted, and the sport psychology theme(s) you identified in the movie. Identify as many major themes as you can.
Plot outline:Give a brief description of the major characters and the storyline. Feel free to describe the ending, as you wonâ€™t ruin my watching of the movie by doing so. This section should be 1 or 2 paragraphs.
Theme(s): Discuss 1 or 2 of the themes identified in the heading. Discuss them in the context of the movie and in the context of what the field of sport psychology knows. This may require some reading in the text that we have not yet covered. You may also use other sources (research studies, magazine articles, etc.) to support your discussion. You can use quotes from the movie to illustrate points. Offer any suggestions for interventions, if appropriate, that are based on what you have learned so far.
Summary: A paragraph summarizing the movie and your discussion of the themes. End this with a rating of the movie from 1 (terrible) to 5 (great).
