See the post below for more info, but this will be your last work over the summer for APSEM.
Assignment #3: Skill check – How Does Soccer Explain China? (Due August 24)
1) Print out the four perspectives on China’s lack of World Cup soccer success, despite the sport’s popularity in the country and its recent hosting of a World Cup: https://roomfordebate.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/06/29/where-are-chinas-soccer-stars/?_r=0.
2) Annotate the four sources in any manner you’d like. You can use a resource like 12 Ways to Markup a Book to help you figure out how to do this.
3) Evaluate the ideas in the sources to understand why China, with such a thirst for soccer, isn’t producing quality soccer itself.
Basically, just like you did in your response for assignment #1, your last piece of written summer work is to answer the question “How does soccer explain China?” Instead of posting this on the blog, please email it to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Monday, August 24 and bring a hard copy of it to class on the first day of school. Like your last assignment, this should be about 600 to 750 words, with evidence from the text.
Let me know if you have any questions!
