Part 2 Compound dictation

Most social scientists believe that the sports that are organized by a society generally reflect the basic (S1) 1. values1of that society and attempt to strengthen them in the minds and emotions of its people. Therefore, organized sports have a more serious social (S2) 2 purpose2 than spontaneous, unorganized play by individuals. This is certainly (S3) 3. true in the United States, where the three most popular organized sports are football, basketball, and baseball. (S4) 4. Nowhere4 are the ways and words of democracy better illustrated than in sports. Organized sports are seen by Americans as an inspiring example of (S5) 5. equality of opportunity in action. In sports, people of different (S6) 6. races and economic backgrounds get an equal chance to excel. For this reason, notes sociologist Harry Edwards, Americans view organized sports as \7. laboratory in which young men, regardless of social class, can learn the advantages and rewards of a competitive system\8. Although Edwards specifically mentions young men, young women also compete in organized sports without regard to their race or economic background. Women's sports are growing in popularity in the United States, and they now have more funding and support at the college level than in the past, The 1996 Olympics provided evidence of the increased interest in women's organized sports. American women won gold medals for several team sports--softball, basketball, soccer, and gymnastics. The idea of competition is at the very heart of organized sports in the United States. (S9) 9. Many Americans believe that learning how to win in sports helps develop the habits necessary to compete successfully in later life. This training, in turn, strengthens American society as a whole. \is commonly held,\10. the competitive ethic taught in sports must be learned and cultivated in youth for the future success of American business and military efforts.\
