a social process through which performance is evaluated and rewarded in terms of the collective achievements of a group of people working together to reach a particular goal.
Name a competitive game (not given in the text) and describe how you would turn it into a cooperative game.
Golf is a competitive game played regularly by individuals. Another format I would teach athletes is alternate shot. Alternate shot consist of one golfer hitting the first shot, or the tee shot, and alternating until the hole is completed. This is a challenging format to play but is the epitome of cooperation. Without communication and trust the team will fail.
Orlick classified most activities into categories. Name an activity that would fit into the cooperative means - individual ends category.
One activity that would fit into Orlick's cooperative mean - individual ends is golf. Not being aware of what this was called, I have used this category my entire golfing career. Having a teammate growing up that was not in the same competitive class as me, I used his expert eye on my swing to improve. His help and cues were a large part to my success. In return, I also provided him tips and cues that helped him reach his goals. When we both communicated well, we would all peak at the right times and the team as a whole would succeed instead of just one individual.
One athlete looks forward to competition while another dreads the upcoming event. This is an example of what type of competitive situation?
This is the subjective competitive situation, which is how a person internalizes the objective of a competitive situation.
How do boys and girls view competition differently? Explain some of the causes of these differences.
Boys play competitive games more often and in bigger groups than girls as well as view themselves more physically capable than girls. Girls games are typical more free in structure and imaginative. I believe it is this way because of how males and females are wired differently as well as our culture. I believe our culture has a lot to do with the perception boys and girls have.
No significant difference in elite athletes regardless of gender.
You are hired as the new physical education teacher for an elementary school. You believe that at this age level, competition and cooperation should be blended to enhance personal growth and development. Describe two specific activities you would devise to achieve this goal.
According to your text, Is there a higher rate of deviance among athletes vs. non-athletes? Explain your answer. What does Coakley suggest be emphasized in order to reduce potential deviant behavior among athletes?
You are a leader at work supervising ten employees. There is a conflict developing amongst these employees. Using your knowledge of the Sherif and Sherif summer camp experiments, name and describe a specific method you would use to decrease the conflict/competition.
Using the Sherif and Sherif summer camp example to supervising ten employees is easily translatable. I would give the 10 employees tasks that were unachievable or very minuscule unless the cooperation of the entire group was applied and everyone worked together. This would be the only time large success would be held by the group, not by one singular individual.
