Course description: An introduction to the history of Western theatre after the Renaissance.

Course Goals and Student Learning Outcomes:Students should be able to conduct independent research in theatre history topics and express themselves in writing on the topics researched, using critical and analytical language.In particular I wish to hone your skills at making your writing brief, clever, witty and cliché-free.

Instructional methods:You will sit around on the Greenroom floor & couch, while I pontificate, show slides, and play videos.You will interrupt, ask questions, force me to go off on tangents, and make humorous comments on the videos. On your own you will watch more videos, do primary research using the historic texts in the textbook, and do web searches as directed.You will then write short (1-2 pg) reports on what you have seen or read.I will offer tips on writing, and encourage you to post revised versions of the video reviews to IMDB for the betterment of mankind.I will nag you when papers are not forthcoming, you will make feeble or creative excuses as taste dictates, you will then be stuck to do extra papers till you figure out doing papers late is a bad idea.Periodically throughout the semester we will address the vital issues of how a life in theatre may be financed, and what compromises are made depending on the source of funding.By the end of the semester you will know how people in the past did theatre, and begin to get an idea about how you might be able to continue to afford doing theatre when you graduate.

Grading: This course is designated as Writing-Intensive (W).This designation

means that the “W” is evident in the course number on the syllabus. The designation applies to upper-division courses and means that a majority of the graded work in the course will be derived from writing activities.Here are the general guidelines for the writing expected in this course:

Students will complete an ungraded writing sample on or near the first day of class to help the teacher assess writing ability and general competence. · Students will receive comments from the teacher and/or peers on drafts of written work.In other words, students will work through a draft-and-redraft process so that they can apply feedback and become more effective writers.If students complete a major research project, the teacher will supervise the students’ writing in stages. · Students will meet individually with the teacher at least once during the term to discuss their writing.

Your semester grade will be based on the following: Participation = 10%, 13 short (1-2pg) video/text reviews 'with rewrites when advised to do so' = 90%.

Grading is based on the following table:

A - 100-90%B - 89-80%C - 79-70%

D - 69-60%F - 59-0%

Assignments:

Face to face attendance and Participation 10pts possible

13 short(1-2 page) text and video analyses 7pts possible for each.

Performing rewrites when needed can increase final grade point values.

Evaluation: Papers will be graded on the following criteria: Content (did you do your research?), Clarity (Coherent analysis with examples given), Brevity (Sticking to a clear subject-not putting in superfluous filler), Grammar and Spelling, & 'Literate wit. 'Consider if the writing would make a good movie or book review: does it have maximum info with a minimum of BS?

Extra Credit: Besides the regular assignments you may also earn extra credit by doing extra movie reviews, which may take the place of a regular assignment whose deadline was missed (2 extra=1 on time) or short research papers (3-4 research pages=1 on time review) on the topics outlined below. Extra credit assignments can be turned in at any time but carry less than 1/2 the credit of a regularly scheduled (on time) assignment. In other words, your assignments are a little like parking tickets - if you don't "pay" them on time, the "price" doubles and you have to do a double amount of work to get the same point value This is to teach you the importance of deadlines in theatre work.

Final Exam Period 1:15-3:15Wednesday December 14thClass discussion and Videos TBA. (Previously Unseen videos by request) Where will your money come from to make your art ????

Class participation (or alternatively,Message board participation) providing helpful commentary, ideas, and moral support to your fellow students is 10% of your grade.If you find you cannot fully participate in the face-to-face class at any time due to travel, illness, or a show, you may participate in “virtual” form on the class message board during that week, and thus need not get behind.The online message board is located at thr334movies@160x120.jpg http://movies.groups.yahoo.com/group/thr334movies

Attendance, Punctuality & Common Politeness:It is difficult to earn full participation credit (10% of grade, remember?) if you miss a lot of the class presentations, or regularly come in late.There is no specific number of absences that is a “cutoff” line for full credit, rather it is the amount of time I see your shining faces, the extent to which you do or don’t participate in the discussions, and above all, the frequency of times I have to shout to be heard over your private non-class-related conversations that influence my judgments on this matter.I know that sitting watching movies induces a state of pleasant relaxation and group camaraderie that encourages talk, (and this is fine) but there are times, most obviously when I’m trying to address the whole class, that you need to stop your private conversations and let me be heard.Repeated brainlessness in this matter WILL lose you points.

Making up a missed film: Inevitably there will be an occasion when you will be unable to make it to class.On that occasion, please hunt down and view the missed class film on your own ASAP, and post your reflections on the film on the class eGroup.This will make it clear to me that you are not some flaky git who can’t even drag your behind into a class that largely consists of watching movies, but rather a diligent student who was unavoidably detained, yet who is anxious to keep up in class.

Important selections from the UAF Student Code of Conduct“UAF requires students to conduct themselves honestly and responsibly, and to respect the rights of others. Conduct that unreasonably interferes with the learning environment or that violates the rights of others is prohibited…. Honesty is a primary responsibility of you and every other UAF student. The following are common guidelines regarding academic integrity:

1.Students will not collaborate on any quizzes, in-class exams, or take-home exams that will contribute to their grade in a course, unless permission is granted by the instructor of the course. Only those materials permitted by the instructor may be used to assist in quizzes and examinations.

2.Students will not represent the work of others as their own. A student will attribute the source of information not original with himself or herself (direct quotes or paraphrases) in compositions, theses and other reports.

3.No work submitted for one course may be submitted for credit in another course without the explicit approval of both instructors.”
