Sports Psychology Power Point
Congratulations. You have been asked to create an MS PowerPoint presentation (i.e., Week 7 assignment) in order to educate youth sport coaches and/or strength and conditioning coaches about sport psychology.
Suggestion – select a specific topic of interest, which is presented in our PSYC460 assigned readings. Examples include: Goal Setting, Imagery, Stress Management, Group Cohesion, or Exercise Adherence.
Create a MS PowerPoint (PPT) presentation and include notes within the presentation. The Notes section should be the script you will use for your presentation such that if you were unable to make the presentation, someone else could present the information by reading what you’ve written in the Notes section. Additional Information re: MS PPT Notes is discussed later in the assignment's instructions.
The Sport Psychology presentation must be at least 10 slides in length (not including the title and reference slides) and include components such as the following:
Table of Contents
Primary Topic of Presentation
Introduction of Presentation’s Main Objective(s)
Identify and Define Important Psychological Concept(s) associated with Presentation's Objectives
Explain how these Psychological Concept(s) can influence athletic performance (cite information from at least three (3) academic publications [i.e., journals – (e.g., The Sport Psychologist, Journal of Sport and Exercise Psychology)]. — Suggestion – You can use the APUS Library (see "APUS Library" on PSYC460 home page) in order to locate scholarly publications (e.g., academic journals). "SPORTDiscus with Full Text" can be a useful database when completing your literature search.
Present one (1) web link for a video pertaining to Psychological Concept(s) discussed in presentation. — When identifying the video in the presentation, just insert the web link on the slide. APUS has size restrictions on uploads, and incorporating the video into the presentation will often make the PPT too large.
Identify an activity, which individuals can complete during this presentation in order to gain knowledge about Psychological Concept(s) discussed.
References (as well as in-text citations should be displayed in APA format). In-text citations may be included within the Notes section of each slide. Information re: American Psychological Association (APA) format is presented in this course's Resources or www.apastyle.org. Also, a suggestion – visit the APUS Library to review Writing@APUS (see "APUS Library" tab located on left side of course's home page).
Please be sure to review the MS PowerPoint do’s and don’ts document (see attachment). Remember, the MS PowerPoint must include a Notes section.
Additional Information re: Notes section:
Notes are placed on the same slide (i.e., beneath) information being presented pertaining to a specific area (e.g., Introduction). See "Click to add notes" at bottom of slide – notes will be placed in this area. Suggestion – use MS PPT "help" to review instructions for inserting “speaker notes” using your specific version of MS PPT.
If Notes are not included within the same slide, a 10-point deduction will be assessed prior to reviewing a student's submission.

Please submit your assignment as an attachment (in an MS PPT ppt. or MS PPT pptx. file format) titled "Your Last Name Week 7 Assignment." For example, the MS PowerPoint file would be titled: Johnson Week 7 Assignment. Avoid typing your entire assignment in the text box provided within each assignment.
