Write a conventional research paper.

Write a conventional research paper. It may be about any topic, so long as it directly pertains to at least one of the plays or other assigned readings from this class.
I’ll expect you to engage closely and at some length with the text of the work that you choose to focus on. You’ll also have to use and cite the same number of outside sources, regardless of which option you choose.
I’ll expect you to submit a “pitch” for your final paper topic, thesis, and list of outside sources before the beginning of class time on Tuesday, November 22. See the assignment marked “Final Paper pitch” for more details.
You must turn in a well-structured essay that follows the standard introduction-discussion-conclusion outline. It should have a clear thesis, a well-structured argument that lays out the evidence to support that thesis, and a strong conclusion that explains why your thesis is relevant and important.
You must append a proper Works Cited. As always for a paper, it should list all the books, articles, and websites you consulted in writing your paper, including material from the syllabus that you quote and/or analyze in the paper.
You should consult at least 3 sources in addition to class readings.
Some good places to start looking include: Oscar Brockett’s History of the Theatre(any edition); the Oxford Companion to Theatre and Performance; the Cambridge Guide to Theatre; any of a number of Cambridge Companions on an assortment of topics
Please be courteous to your classmates when checking out material from the library! Share!
NO MATERIAL FROM WIKIPEDIA OR SIMILAR SITES!
Electronic editions of, say, the New York Timesare perfectly acceptable, so long as the author might reasonably be considered an authority on the subject. URLs ending in .edu and .org are often, though not always, more likely to be reliable.
Please don’t hesitate to ask me about sources! You are ultimately responsible for choosing, analyzing, and properly citing the sources, but I am happy to point you in the direction of materials of which you may not be aware. I’ve spent way too much of my life thinking about this stuff, so someone might as well benefit.
FORMAT:
The paper (excluding title, bibliography, etc.) will be at least 1,500 words long, with 3,000 words as a general (though not absolute) upwards limit.
In an attempt to save paper and avoid printer problems, I request that you submit this in electronic form. Please upload it to Canvas by the start of class on December 6. Anything submitted a minute after this deadline will be considered late, so please plan accordingly!
AS ALWAYS, PLAGIARISM OF ANOTHER’S THOUGHTS OR WORDS IS UNACCEPTABLE AND WILL RESULT IN A FAILING GRADE!

Research the era, whether elizabethan, victorian, modem, neoclassical, among others, and give examples as to what constitutes a representative work for it.

Your paper should respond to two research questions:
The first question is “Is this or is it not a typical work for its author?” Many authors develop a career profile and readers often classify them as writers inclined, for example, to compose long works or short works, works using specific literary forms, works about war, romance, religion, politics, or autobiography. Demonstrate that you have researched your author’s career and learned what typifies the majority of her/his works. Give specific examples to support this as well as your determination of whether or not your work fits that profile.
The second part of this paper responds to a comparable question about whether or not your work is typical for the literary era in which it appeared. Research the era, whether Elizabethan, Victorian, Modem, Neoclassical, among others, and give examples as to what constitutes a representative work for it. Does the work you have chosen fit this profile or deviate from it?
Papers should be double spaced, follow the Modem Language Association Style Sheet, and use a 12 point font. Staple the pages together; no cover or cover page is necessary. Place your name, class (including section number), and the date of submission on the first page. Number all subsequent pages and place your last name at the top of each page. Place the list of works cited or a bibliography at the end.

After watching the 2 videos on educational theatre, i want you to reflect on both and discuss your opinions and thoughts on the importance of educational theatre and why some people believe that studying/introducing young people to theatre (and art in general) is as important a development and educational tool as stem etc.

After watching the 2 videos on Educational Theatre, I want you to reflect on both and discuss your opinions and thoughts on the importance of Educational Theatre and why some people believe that studying/introducing young people to theatre (and art in general) is as important a development and educational tool as STEM etc.
Try to avoid general interest comments but instead, try to speak to something very specific in the videos that help define education theatre for you.
In addition, after you discuss this, please take a moment, at least a paragraph and discuss your own experience of art education (either theatre or some other art form) and what impact it might have had own you in your growth (even if you did not decide the arts was in your professional future).
Your reflection must be at least 400 words or points will be deducted.

Don’t have much in common socially, compare their two roles as “supporting” characters.

Both plays have casts of characters who end up largely “paired off” in accordance with the design of the plot. Both also have isolated, memorable characters who function as “commentators” on the action, without actually changing the course of events. Although Bottom the Weaver and Lady Bracknell
don’t have much in common socially, compare their two roles as “supporting” characters.
