Leisure definition

Hello, this is for my RPTA Leisure class. It is a writing-intensive class that is needed for my College. I will provide the sources down below. Also if you can find the textbook “Pastimes the context of Contemporary Leisure 6th edition by Ruth V. Russell” that would be awesome and it is one of the sources that I need to use because it is my textbook for the class. Please read the instructions I provide down below. Thank you 

This assignment involves a combination of research on the subject of leisure and introspection on your personal definition of leisure. You are to research the ways in which leisure is defined in the literature and analyze these definitions in relation to your personal definition of leisure.  This research and analysis will serve as a basis for additional learning throughout the semester. 

Instructions:   Complete a paper containing all of the following:

Construct an appropriate title for your paper.
Complete an introductory paragraph with a clear thesis.
Discuss the definitions of leisure you found in your research, referencing at least three outside sources. This means you must use at least three different outside documents (books, articles, etc) 
Discuss your personal leisure definition of leisure.

Do you agree with the definitions you found in your research? Why or why not? 
How does your definition compare with the definitions you found in your research?

Include a well-constructed conclusion to summarize your research efforts.
Use correct citations to reflect proper recognition of the authors quotations and paraphrased ideas from your research.
Include works cited page in APA format.
