Theatre 101 Spring 2012 Section 5 Instructor: Teresa Focarile Office: Morrison Center Academic Wing, Room 113 Office Hours by appointment Email: [email protected] Phone: 860-459-5704 Text: The Wadsworth Anthology of Drama , W.B Worthen Assigned Plays: Oedipus the King, Sophocles Hamlet , William Shakespeare Tartuffe , Moliere Mother Courage, Bertolt Brecht Trifles , Susan Glaspell Fires in the Mirror, Anna Deveare Smith Course Objectives: This course intends to aid students in developing methods for identifying, evaluating and appreciating theatre as a performing art. The students will read from the required text, discuss and write about performance, as well as gain a basic understanding of the roles of theatre practitioners and theatre history. The following are some of the primary overall objectives of this course: 1. Gaining factual knowledge (terminology, classifications, methods, trends). 2. Learning fundamental principles, generalizations or theories. 3. Gaining a broader understanding and appreciation of intellectual/cultural activity. Theatre is an art that grew out of ritual and a need to tell the history of a people. From these origins, theatre continues to act as a place for a community to share an experience and learn about the human condition/ideas of the day. We will look at how people have approached this art form over the centuries, and how our theater of today is influenced by all that has come before. Course Requirements: Exams During the course of the semester, you will be evaluated three times on both the readings and the work that we do in class (two during the semester and the final). The evaluations may include vocabulary, multiple-choice, true/false and short essay. You will be required to bring a pencil or pen to each exam.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
