The second one is competition and the last one is college cheer. A sport says that you must physically exert yourself. In cheer, especially competitive, you work on routines a hundred times to make them perfect. Cheerleaders also do stunting, which is basically like lifting weights. Cheerleading also requires a certain amount of skill.
The girls do get graded on how clean their stunts, tumbling, and foundation is. There’s also more than two teams competing against each other. Lastly, the girls win in place of first, second, and third instead of just one team winning. To summarize this paragraph, cheerleading does compete against other teams even though there isn’t just one score of how many times a team scores against the other. To summarize this essay, cheerleading is most definitely a sport because it has all the requirements to classify as a sport, physical activity, and competitions.
Another reason as to why cheer might not be a sport would be because you cheer for basketball and football players. That is very true but cheerleaders also compete so we aren’t just cheering for basketball and football players. In games we don’t just cheer we also perfect tumbling skills during time-outs and also perfect stunts, maybe being used for competitions that we were struggling with. Cheerleading also takes a lot of practice, it isn’t something that you can catch on to quickly. Overall cheerleading is athletic and requires skill, even if people disagree.
Over the years, all girl sports have become more and more popular. With this is new found popularity comes a lot of pressure to be the best one in the business. The girls will do absolutely anything to prove this. Some girls that are already thin will go on diets, exercise even more or try and get themselves in the spotlight so the instructor can see them. Sophie Flack elaborates on these issues through each chapter in her book, Bunheads by using her choice of rhetorical devices and style to show readers just how difficult it is to be a ballerina.
He goes on to show the audience the ways that the provocative behavior of the girls can reap negative attention from all types of people. He writes, “It’s impossible to look at these photos and not see a terribly exploited little girl” (Hollandsworth 2). Pageants also teach the girls at a very young age, to be focused only on appearance. The target audience would mostly be southern mothers and grandmothers who tend to allow their daughters to sign up for the contests. The context of the article focuses on how everyone enjoys seeing these girls perform on stage.
She picks up the hula-hoop with both hand and places at her waist level. She spins the hula-hoop clockwise and rotates her body. As the hula-hoop falls she laughs loudly. One of her friend says, “Try again”. She says, “Okay” and picks the hula-hoop.
For this artifact assignment I have chosen to dig deep and pull out my inner cheerleader. Well to be honest I did not have to dig to deep. I love to cheer, all things cheerleading, and being peppy! The requirements for this assignments were simply to, and I quote the assignment submission page: “Design, gather, or produce materials using the arts that could be used in your classroom to enhance instruction in your content area. Your artifact will be completely unique and representative of your field of study as well as to one of the ideas, topics, and chapters studied within the course.” I have chosen to utilize cheerleading as a form of recreational kinesthetic art to help enhance instruction in an ELA lesson plan for 3rd grade spelling words.
I like to be in charge, and I like to tell them how and when to do it. I would give the sassy award to Simone Biles. Simone Biles is an Olympic Gymnast. When she does her floor routine you can see the sass come out. Simone does the salsa in her routine, when she is doing it she winks at the judges.
Seven articles I have found provided examples of women standing up for themselves, show facts and statistics. From women starting a movement, to women having profound unfairness in the sport. These women are standing up for themselves no matter of how they are treated by society. Overall, women are making a difference in the skateboarding culture and their actions are profound. In three of the seven articles, I have found a certain women circle around this group “Skirtboarders” that they have made.
Cheerleading is very fun and entertaining sport that can also be doubled as a very dangerous sport almost as more dangerous than football. Most people think of cheerleaders as being the girls who cheer on the sidelines at football or basketball teams, but it’s a lot more than just cheering at a football game. No one sees the behind the scenes actions of cheerleading, no one sees how hard we practice on a everyday basis. But in these long, hard working practices, there are injuries, some minor and some major. Cheerleading as evolved into a athletic and high skilled sport but the higher the skills reach, the bigger chance of getting injured.
