KEENE STATE COLLEGE 2007-2008 COURSE PROPOSAL FORM DATE: Sept 7, 2007 (revised 11-13-07) SPONSORING program and chair: Theatre and Dance, Dan Patterson, Chair: x82198, dpatters@keene.edu PROPOSAL SPONSOR: Same TITLE SUMMARY: TAD 231, Western Theatre: Hist/Lit I PROPOSED ACTION: Underline proposed changes. Course Addition Number Change Title Change Credit Change Description Change Prerequisite Change Course Deletion Course Replacement Other: EXISTING (OLD) DATA: Insert the course information as it exists in the current KSC Catalog. You may copy the information electronically from the KSC Web page: http://www.keene.edu/catalog/mdc.cfm TAD 131 Theatre: History/Literature I 3 credits The history and literature of Western theatre examined from Ancient Greece to the Italian Renaissance. Exploring the great dramatic works and learning the context in which they were written through lectures, readings, videotapes, and discussion. Fall PROPOSED (NEW) COURSE TITLE: Limit the course title to 30 characters, including spaces. If more characters are absolutely necessary for clarity, the sponsor should submit an abbreviated title to assure an intelligible abbreviated title of choice (for use in student information system, on transcripts, etc.). TAD 231 Western Theatre: History/Literature I Short title: Western Theatre: Hist/Lit I PROPOSED (NEW) COURSE DESCRIPTION: Limit the Course Description to 50 words, not including prerequisites. Prerequisites should be clear and specific, e.g., as courses (e.g., ENG 101) or number of credits required. Finally, specify semester(s) the course will be offered. TAD 231 Western Theatre: History/Literature I 4 credits The history and literature of Western theatre examined from Ancient Greece to French Neo-Classic and the English Restoration. Exploring the great dramatic works and learning the context in which they were written through lectures, readings, videotapes, Research papers, and discussion. Prerequisite: ITW 101, Spring LEARNING OUTCOMES: State knowledge and/or skills students will be expected to demonstrate upon completion of this course. For more information, see Guidelines for Developing Program Objectives, Course Objectives, and Learning Outcomes: http://www.keene.edu/senate/proposals/help/Writing4.cfm Select a topic and research and write a major research paper for the class. Read and write analytical reports on a number of Dramatic works from this range of historical periods. Think and write critically. Articulate and defend a specific point of view in class discussions. Critically discuss History and literature using objective, detailed descriptions, and discipline based analytic vocabulary. RATIONALE: Explain why this change is being made. Address the connection with institutional mission, and/or department, program, and course objectives. This course was approved for our 4-credit program change last year and we have now decided to change the numbering and the semester in which it is offered. This is an attempt to discourage Freshmen from taking this course as we feel that they need to have some of the ISP TW courses under their belts before they take this one. Off-setting the semester offering from every Fall to every Spring will also help discourage first-semester freshmen from taking this course until they have taken a TW course. RESOURCES: For course proposals, include the name of the faculty member(s) who will be teaching this course, whether tenure-track, full-time, or adjunct. Indicate whether additional staffing, facilities, and/or equipment will be required. Also, consider the long-term impact of adding a course or altering a program. When a proposal has staffing, space or monetary implications, the VPAA must be consulted and his or her comments should be included in this section. This course has been and will continue to be taught by an adjunct. This particular situation is not ideal and very badly needs to be upgraded. At the present time, however, we hope to be able to preserve the status quo even though it becomes more difficult with each passing year. No additional staffing, facilities, and/or equipment will be required at the present time. What additional library resources will be required? Has the library been consulted to determine the adequacy of library holdings or to estimate the cost to improve these sufficiently? No additional library resources are needed. ADVISORY OPINIONS: List the names of affected departments and include department responses. Advisory opinions are required whenever a proposal affects the curricula of other programs. A proposal must list all affected departments. An Advisory Opinion must be solicited at least two weeks prior to delivery of the proposal to the DCC. Affected departments have two weeks to respond to the request for an Advisory Opinion. Responses should be attached to the proposal. In the event that affected departments do not respond, evidence of the request for an Advisory Opinion from non-respondents must be provided. If a proposal affects a curriculum in a division other than that of the sponsor, each relevant department and the DCC in that division must review and approve the proposal as well. (The electronic curriculum review process tracks votes, advisory opinions and comments as required at each stage of the review.)

Address the connection with institutional mission, and/or department, program, and course objectives. This would be the second in a sequence of two theatre History courses required by our majors. When the numbering is changed for the first course to 231, we need to follow with a change in the second. Also we have changed the semesters in which these courses are offered, taking it out of the traditional Fall-Spring sequence and moving it into a Spring-Fall sequence in order to discourage first-semester freshmen from taking the course until they have a TW course under their belts.

Program addition Change in requirements* Program redesign Program deletion Changes in prerequisites Other: *Please note that changes pertaining to admission requirements for a major require approval of the Senate Academic Standards Committee. Summary: The Theatre and Dance department is changing the number and Title of the old 131 and 132 Theatre History/Literature I and II Courses to 231 and 232 Western Theatre: His/Lit I and II. This, of course, necessitates program changes in pre-requisites to reflect these changes. The following is a duplicate of the Four-Credit program proposal passed last year with the changes highlighted. PROPOSED (NEW) PROGRAM: Specify degree, major, option, specialization or minor as appropriate. Provide the proposed program in its entirety and as it would appear in the KSC Catalog. If this change affects other programs, please note all the places (page numbers in the current catalog) where this change must be made. Theatre and Dance, Bachelor of Arts Department of Theatre and Dance Mission Statement The Department of Theatre and Dance is dedicated to providing a comprehensive course of study that balances theory and practice within a sound liberal arts education. Because of the collaborative nature of these disciplines, our students gain practical experience in all facets of production and critical engagement. As artists and teachers, our primary focus is to encourage and guide our students as they experience and question the world through theatre and dance. The Theatre and Dance major gives students the opportunity to specialize in Acting, Directing, Design and Technical Theatre, and Dance. The Acting and Directing specializations offer advanced performance work, with core course sequences and a wide variety of individual courses in specialized areas. The Design and Technical theatre specializations allows students to study design and theatre technology within the framework of both theoretical and practical courses, using the sophisticated facilities of the Redfern Arts Center on Brickyard Pond as a laboratory. The Dance Option focuses primarily on modern dance technique and theory, choreography, dance history, and performance. The ideal graduate of the Theatre and Dance program will be well prepared for a lifetime of appreciation, participation and further study in these Performing Arts. LANGUAGE REQUIREMENT Students must fulfill the current language requirements as described in policy statement which appears at the beginning of the Bachelor's Degree Programs section of this catalog.

TAD 304 Directing II 4 credits A studio workshop for the preparation, rehearsal, performance, and evaluation of one-act plays. Emphasis on text analysis through identification of a content statement and metaphor, clarification of motivational units, moods and tempos, and effective collaboration with actors and designers. Prerequisites: TAD 303 or permission of the instructor. Spring, odd years. LEARNING OUTCOMES: State knowledge and/or skills students will be expected to demonstrate upon completion of this course. For more information, see Guidelines for Developing Program Objectives, Course Objectives, and Learning Outcomes: http://www.keene.edu/senate/proposals/help/Writing4.cfm At the end of the semester, each student should be able: 1. Choose a one-act script for production that meets basic criteria of cast size, quality of text, and identification of a main focus or idea of the play that inspires the student director. 2. Conceptualize the production to be done through the formulation of a clear and focused content statement and production metaphor or central image. 3. Intelligently support content statement and metaphor choice through exhaustive text citing. 4. Research past production history for any insight into production/text focus and concerns, as well as research any visual or textual references in the script for understanding, clarification and use in the actual production. 5. Allow for the decisions made on ground plan and blocking choices to be driven by the content statement and metaphor. 6. Break a play down into motivational units, which clearly identify the action, inherent meaning, mood and tempo of each unit. 7. Organize an efficient and effective audition process and casting for the production. 8. Schedule rehearsals to both fit the time constraints on each production and effectively and efficiently use that rehearsal time for maximum results. 9. Collaborate with designers to obtain a design that best serves the production. Clarity in communicating basic needs and moods/images inherent in the piece is very important here. 10. Find the strongest means of having the play come to life visually and aurally through the use of organic blocking, mood creation and tempo acknowledgement. 11. Experiment with rehearsal techniques to find those which work best, both for the play itself and for the specific actors involved. 12. Honestly evaluate the quality of the production after its presentation through critical writing and thinking. 13. Think and write critically in evaluating the work of fellow students.
