After reviewing this weeks material and the Lesson in our Lesson section:
- Create a bullet point list and then describe 4 or 5 different psychological skills used by elite athletes, according to your research on this topic. Cite your references and end with a reference list.
- Before the reference list, briefly describe which psychological skill do you feel is your best strategy for coping while striving for success? Describe how you use this strategy in your daily life.
Note: Take time before posting to read ALL of the instructions below. Doing so will help you avoid point loss.
For each forum, respond by Thursday of this week. Then, by Sunday reply to a minimum of two classmates. Your first post (the one due by Thursday) must be a minimum of 250 words and a minimum of two required replies must be 100 words each. Partial completion of discussion board work (first post without both replies, or one or two replies without the first post) or posts not at or above the length requirements, or any posts containing copied or quoted material may earn zero points, no exceptions. Replies must show that you are respectfully responding to what the classmate said.
Forums are opportunities for you to reflect, analyze, and even challenge thought, but proper netiquette rules must be followed. Reiterating what other students have already said and/or directly quoting them won’t earn points. All published materials used MUST be paraphrased (restated in your own words) and source credited both in the body of and in a list at the end of each post where any content is based directly on or inspired by a published author’s writing. In addition, you are required to apply in-text documentation and end references to all initial forum posts.
Each week you must incorporate into and apply idea/concepts from the week’s assigned readings to your first post (the one due by Thursday). This will be evidenced by clear identification of the ideas/concepts so the reader can easily locate them in your post an explanation of how they fit and their pages number locations in the course textbook.
Keep in mind as you write that “incorporating” doesn’t mean just tacking onto the end or randomly placing so you can say you did it. The ideas/concepts must be logically placed in the post in a way that fits with the flow of the rest of the writing.
