- I have posted the updated Course syllabus here.
- Homework is to use the SPORT DISCUS database (1.7 million records), accessible through the Smith Library Main Page (use the drop down resources menu to find Exercise & Sport Studies), to find a peer-reviewed Journal article on a PST program for your sport. It should be an article which is a report on a PST program (i.e., participants in the study did mental training and the researchers evaluated whether or not the PST program worked). If you are a non-Smith student, you may only have access in one of the Smith Libraries (i.e., you have to go there and use a Smith computer). Write a brief half-page summary of the article, and be prepared to present an overview of the article to your classmates (30-60s).
- Our first short quiz for those who have not written either the Miracle or Titans papers will take place at the end of class (if you recall: 5-6 multiple choice/short answer questions per topic – pass/fail, based mostly on the assigned text readings).
- Our topic next class is: Self-Confidence (& Self-Efficacy) which will be analyzed through the film Invincible.
