THEATER PLAY 

Shakespeare  

 

Restrictions:  The experience should be viewed during the current semester.  If this is impossible, contact the instructor to arrange for alternatives.  You may not report on a cultural experience viewed prior to this class. 

Write a report after you have explored or viewed the online resource. 

Your report should include the following information. Include photos or links that help convey the information. As always, be sure to document all sources you consult in preparing your work. This includes any learning resources from the class, or information from the websites that informed you about the particular item you explored. 

  • Name and location of event or name and director of the film, writer’s name etc. If there is on-line information about what you viewed, be sure to include a link to it within the text of your essay in an appropriate place.  
  • Type of event. For example is it a film, ritual, service, ceremony, poetry reading, festival, author interview etc. Make sure to include the name of the authors, directors, producers, speakers, author of your favorite poem (if poetry festival or event).  
  • Briefly describe the general setting by talking a bit about the location (you can research the location online) and the general overall "vibe" of the place or places viewed. 
  • Describe at least one aspect of what you viewed that you found especially interesting. For example, you might write about the different ways the same ritual is conducted by different groups, a poem you really liked from the reading or poetry festival, something an author or direct said that really struck you. Explain what impressed or affected you, and why. Your reaction can be positive or negative, as long as you offer an explanation. 
  • Identify and use at least two tools, concepts or methods that you have learned about in this class in the Learning Resources to talk about your viewing. For example, if you view a director’s commentary, you might point out what the director says about lighting or the set, or if you view to a ritual, talk about the myth the ritual is based on, or if you watch a spoken word or poetry reading, you can talk about specific literary language or imagery. Make sure you are explicit in identifying the tools/concept/methods you are using and the specific learning resources they come from. Be sure to inform the reader about the tool/concept/method through a quote or paraphrase from the learning resource. Then, make sure to tell the reader how you interpret and/or analyze some elements of what you experience with the tools.  
  • Be sure to cite the learning resources you have used in MLA format. Please see http://sites.umgc.edu/library/libhow/mla_examples.cfm 
  • Reflect on the relevance--if any--of your viewing to your everyday life.  How did the experience engage your feelings or emotions, if at all? What does this tell you about human culture, and/or about yourself? 

STOP: Before you hand in your assignment, ask yourself the following questions:  

  1. Have I clearly provided identifying information about what I viewed in terms of who was involved and where it took place and provided the URL, if applicable? Have I done what I could to describe the setting and/or vibe? 
  2. Have I identified and explained an especially interesting aspect of the experience and used examples to illustrate reflections and to explain why this aspect was interesting? 
  3. Have I identified and applied two tools, concepts or methods of interpretation from learning resources to concrete and specific examples from visit? 
  4. Have I used examples to clearly explain the relevance of my visit to at least one of the following: 1) emotion 2) human culture 3) self-identity 4) cultural identity? 
  5. Have I used Learning Resources from the class and provided a list of resources, and do all of my citations conform to MLA 8th edition guidelines? 
  6. Have I proofread this assignment for grammatical, structural, and spelling errors?
