COURSE GOALS: Objectives for this course are for you: .

|READERS THEATRE (analysis) (program)||VARIOUS EXERCISES|

|PERSONAL NARRATIVE (analysis)
You can receive extra credit (5 points each, up to three) for either attending or performing in plays or readings. To receive credit for these, you must submit a minimum one-page critique. The opening paragraph of this critique will include the when, what, where and who of the performance. Critique the positive as well as the negative aspects of the performance. Specifics are required.
Written and oral critiques will be provided to all groups by the instructor. Each group member is expected to critique one group for each assignment as well as your own and your group's performance for each major assignment.
Extra credit (5 points each, up to three) may also be earned by attending speaking events (approved by the instructor) and by submitting a brief critique of each event.
All written work must be typed and proofed for errors. Errors in spelling and grammar will reduce your grade. Written work with ten or more errors will receive a zero (0). Grades on outlines and other written work are reduced 10% for every school day they are late. You must submit all written work directly to your instructor. Neither your instructor nor the Communication Department will accept responsibility for your papers that are left on desks, in mailboxes, or given to others. Correct format and neatness of work are required.
In addition, any group member missing a scheduled rehearsal without notifying the group with a valid excuse will lose one letter grade from the group's overall grade.
OTHER CLASS POLICIES:
Grades will not be discussed in class. If you wish to dispute a grade, wait twenty-four hours, then make an appointment to see me during office hours.
There will be two or three quizzes covering the text and lectures.
