Extended Course Description Students are introduced to the socio-cultural study of the body, health and healthcare. That the body is a social construction as well as a biological organism means that no human being lives outside of society. We all experience lifelong socialization as embodied persons interacting within specific social environments. An individuals social body is categorized and trained into socially approved roles and practices that are informed by cultural, political and historical conditions and that influence and are influenced by ones perceived gender, appearance, age, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, ability, and class or caste. As the core socio-cultural course in our Kinesiology and Health Science undergraduate degree, KINE 1000 focuses on understanding the social body as key to a critical approach to physical culture, health and human rights. Course Objectives Following this course, students will be able to: 1. Understand the concept of social construction as it pertains to physical activity, the body and health. 2. Develop a critical understanding of how power relations, privilege and stereotyping generate and perpetuate inequalities and prejudices about human bodies with respect to hegemonic societal standards of health and performance. 3. Critically reflect on the nature of scientific paradigms and scientific knowledge as it pertains to the study of physical activity, body and health. 4. Analyze physical activity and health as social and historical institutions influenced by material conditions of life. 5. Analyze physical activity and sport in contemporary North American society sociologically. 6. Develop and have the opportunity to demonstrate university-level reading comprehension, critical evaluation, and writing skills. Email policy Email is great technology when used in moderation. Although you may use email to share comments and concerns not raised in class, email will be reserved primarily for arranging appointments and/or attending to issues that need to be resolved before the next tutorial.

Course material will be reviewed in class only. Every effort will be made to respond to emails within two business days. Please ensure that email messages are professional, clear and coherent.

Turnitin In order to maintain the academic integrity of your degree, the course utilises Turnitin as a method of reducing plagiarism. In addition to handing in hard copies of the assignments at the beginning of lectures, students are to submit a copy of their work to Turnitin no later than the beginning of lecture. If you prefer not to submit to Turnitin, you must contact the Course Director no later than two full weeks before the assignment deadline, submit all the draft copies, write an Annotated Bibliography of all the references used in preparing your work and be prepared for an oral presentation and defense of your work. Moodle Most, but not all, lectures will be recorded through lecture capture technology and be posted in our course Moodle site. In efforts to encourage comprehensive note-taking skills, we post our Power Point presentation slides following lecture. Be aware that lecture capture and web-posted slides should be approached as a complement to your lectures, not a substitute. 3
