The Beautiful Game: An Overview
Students will learn valuable reading, writing and viewing skills through the use of football movies, articles and stories. Students will learn how to do research by exploring the history of the game, learn to analyse films by watching both movies and documentaries about the game and will hone their writing skills by submitting reflections and stories about the beautiful game. During the 1.5hr blocks, students will participate in an intramural soccer competition comprised of teams of 3 and with 2, 5 minute halves. Depending on numbers, students will be able to play up to 2 games per 1.5hr block. Students will need to bring appropriate clothing and footwear for the football games.
Note: Students will only be able to participate in the intramural soccer games if they complete their class work.
