| May 21, 2015

 

For this assignment, you will be expected to apply the research knowledge found in the textbook, as well as additional journals, to create your paper on a topic relating to leisure or recreation in Canada.

You will select 3-5 journal articles (research oriented and peer-reviewed) related to the topics of leisure and recreation in Canadian society, relevant to a topic that you find interesting. Careful selection of the articles and an in-depth understanding of their content will be necessary for successful completion of this assignment.

You will be graded on your understanding of the information presented in the articles and your ability to link this information to the concepts of recreation and leisure and your topic. You are free to choose your topic, preferably something that has piqued your interest during this course, but it must be related to leisure or recreation in Canada in some way. Popular topics in the past have included, but are certainly not limited, to:

Sport development in Canada
Leisure/recreation for Canada’s aging population
Leisure related to youth, new Canadians or minority populations
How funding can affect national/provincial programs related to leisure and recreation
Volunteering
Tourism, sustainable tourism, increase in technology, decrease of being in nature
etc
The articles that you select must be academic peer-reviewed articles and you are to employ the same skills for finding these articles as you did to find the article for Assignment 1.
