Question description

Leisure Interviews

The purpose of this assignment is for students to demonstrate an understanding of the correlation of leisure involvement to overall personal health and lifelong learning and satisfaction across multiple age groups/levels. Students will conduct 4 separate personal interviews that will span four generations:

  • Interview 1 ~ 70 or older
  • Interview 2 ~ 50 to 69 y.o.
  • Interview 3 ~ 30 to 49 y.o.
  • Interview 4 ~ An individual younger than 25

Students are required to choose an individual in each age category and talk with them about leisure. The interview/discussion should help the student gain a further understanding of various individual’s perception of leisure and how “leisure attitudes” have changed over time. Students should be able to increase their understanding of the benefits of participation in a variety of leisure opportunities and the relationship to a healthy and satisfying life across the lifespan.  Potential questions that students may ask, include, but are not limited to: 

What is your leisure participation now versus when you were in your teens, 20’s, 30’s, 40’s?  How was leisure perceived when you were younger?  How do you think that leisure in society has changed?  How do you think it may change in the next 25 years?  Why?  How would you define leisure?  What are the benefits of leisure?  What influenced your decision on what activities you participated in?  Does your spouse, family, friends share in your same leisure interests?

Students will share their findings through a 1-2 page paper.  The paper will contain a summary of each interview (1-2 paragraphs each). Students will then compare/contrast their interview findings (1-2 paragraphs).  The final 1-2 paragraphs should demonstrate the student’s knowledge acquisition by relating the interview content to the core concepts discussed in this course.  This should include citations from course learning modules and/or assigned readings.
