questions or statements that will assess your knowledge of the first part
of  R110 into a 250 word minimum response (500 words and two quotes from

“…Roman ludi” (p. 18).

For leisure meant pleasure, for the
Greeks “…schole means leisure” (Russell, 2013, p. 40).

and Compensation,Theory of Planned Behavior).

Question #1

Which of
the leisure theories* discussed in the text and/or lecture do
you understand the most? Describe this theory and explain
why you think it is the best theory for explaining your own
leisure choices, behavior, and aspirations. Lastly, what does this
theoretical explanation provide as a commentary about you?

Question #2

Which of the three
contexts of leisure most connects to the pillars
of sustainability? Which of the three contemporary definitions
of leisure most connects to the WHO definition of health?
Defend your choices with specific examples.

Question #3

Today, there remains much of the
legacy of Romanticism about leisure. What is Romanticism? What are some
aspects of art and culture that reflected the Romantic attitude? Discuss
an example of the Romantic legacy in both
outdoor preservation and tourism.

Question #4

Name and describe the three
ways in which leisure contributes to freedom “to” as opposed to
freedom “from,” according to Bregha’s investigations. Then, based on
these three determine whether you have leisure as
freedom “to” or freedom “from” in your own life. Why?
