Media Analysis

Select an image of your sport from popular media that represents or challenges the stereotype of the sport (or both). This can be from a magazine, an ad, a website, a news article, or another popular media site. Provide a link or post a copy of the image (with proper citation). Do a close analysis of the image to create an argument for what sort of cultural values, practices, or assumptions are embedded within the image. Demonstrate how the image is doing cultural work to send certain messages or reinforce certain beliefs about the sport.
