This Unit’s Questions
Question 1: A sport involves a balance between the elements of play and spectacle. You have a choice between participating in a sport in which the elements of play are emphasized or a sport in which the elements of spectacle are emphasized. Which one would you choose? Explain why you chose one over the other.
Question 2: Which mainstream sport in the U.S. is closest to becoming dramatic spectacle? Give reasons for your choice and illustrate what would be necessary to prevent that sport from becoming dramatic spectacle.
Question 3: According to definitions in the text, wrestling may be a form of play, a sport, or dramatic spectacle. Give examples of “wrestling” in each of these three forms and discuss the factors that lead it to be classified in each of these three categories.
Question 4: Some sociologists study sports in society because sports are tied closely to ideologies in societies. Explain what is meant by “ideologies” and then show how sports are related to ideas about gender, race, and social class.
Question 5: One of your friends tells you that you should drop your sociology of sport course because he has knowledge about sports that is based on his personal theories. His knowledge and theories, he claims, are just as valid as any of the theories you will learn in the course. You tell him that there’s a difference between his personal theories and sociological theories, and he wants you to explain the differences. What is your explanation?
Question 6: You have been hired to do a study of why so many athletes are willing to play while they are in pain or injured. Explain which theories (cultural, interactionist, or structural) you would use to guide you in the research process. What kinds of questions would you ask, what would be your focus of analysis, and what concepts would you use in your study?
Question 7: You have been appointed to a university research committee that has been charged to study gender and intercollegiate sports on your campus. You decide that Messner’s (in your text) work on gender and sport provides an excellent model for your project. Discuss what in particular you would study and why is it important to study it in order to contribute to better knowledge of sports.
Question 8: There are two major approaches to defining and understanding “disability” in people’s lives and in our social worlds. One is medical/psychological and the other is social/political. Explain the differences between these two approaches and how they lead to very different strategies for dealing with disabilities particularly when dealing with sport participation.

Explain in 3–4 sentences how your personal values, worldviews, life experiences, and/or your personality influenced your selection of the top three theories or models.

  The Theoretical Evaluation Self-Test (TEST) was developed by Daniel Coleman. It is a quantitative instrument that measures a therapist’s theoretical orientation. It consists of 30 close-ended statements with a 7-point Likert scale, asking the extent of agreement about “psychotherapy, the human psyche, and the therapeutic process” (Coleman, 2008, p. 74). The seven theoretical orientations that are measured are psychodynamic, biological, family systems, ecosystems, cognitive, pragmatic, and humanistic. 
For this Discussion, you take the TEST to stimulate self-reflection. You will also take some time to reflect on all the different theories and models covered in this course. 
After taking the TEST, post your results.
Explain in 2–3 sentences the extent to which you were surprised or not surprised by the TEST results and explain the reasons why you were surprised or not surprised.
After looking back at the array of theories and models that were covered in this course, identify the top three theories or models that most appealed to you.
