Course Learning O bjectives: Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to: 1.

Apply critical thinking and writing skills to broadly-focused questions concerning the above-stated objective facts (papers, exam essays) 3. Apply critical analysis and interpretation to specific pieces of art and music, identifying major features, placing them in historical and artistic contexts, and crafting an informed subjective opinion (papers, exam essays) 4. Create an original piece of art and/or music with a small team of collaborators, drawing on one or more specific historical and artistic influences, and identify these influences through an explanatory essay (group project). Textbook: (required) Wold, Milo, Gary Martin, James Miller, and Edmund Cykler. An Introduction to Music and Art in the Western World, 10th ed. New York: McGraw Hill, 1996. ISBN-13: 9780697255846. 1
  2. 2. Course Requirements: The grade (letter grade with +/- variations) will be based on four components: 1. Exams (35%): A midterm and final exam will be given during the semester. They will consist of slide IDs, listening exercises, short answer questions, comparisons, and essays. Exam reviews will be given before each test. There will be NO M AKE-UP EXAM S. Please make note of the dates for each exam: -M idterm (15%): Thursday, M arch 7 -Final (20%): Tuesday, M ay 7 2. Papers (30%): The writing assignments are exercises intended to improve students’ listening and visual skills. Paper #1 (15%) will require students to analyze a work of art and a musical composition separately and then compare both works together. The paper will be due FEBRUARY 12. Paper #2 (15%) will be similar to the first; however, students will choose the pieces to compare, either two musical works, two artworks, or one musical composition and work of art. The paper will be due APRIL 9. A detailed handout on the specific requirements for each paper will be supplied soon. 3. Project (20%): A 3-person group project including an original creative component (music and/or visual art), and a writing component placing that artwork within one or more historical and thematic contexts discussed in class. The Project will be due M AY 2. A detailed handout on the specific requirements for the project will be supplied soon. 4. Class Participation and Attendance (15%): This component is the most important part of the grade. Since this course involves a lot of reading and discussion, it is essential that students D O NO T miss class for any reason. Active engagement with the material, interest and participation during class indicates concern for one’s grade, and this commitment will be reflected in the final grade. Students are allowed up to 2 unexcused absences for the semester. Absences above this amount will result in a lowered participation grade, up to the discretion of the instructors. 2
  3. 3. CLASSRO O M ISSUES Academic D ishonesty: Faculty members have a special obligation to expect high standards of academic honesty in all student work. Students also have a special obligation to adhere to such standards. It is your responsibility to become familiar with the material in A Student Guide to Conduct and Discipline at UT Tyler concerning university regulations regarding academic dishonesty, and the definitions of cheating and plagiarism that it contains. In general, plagiarism is the unauthorized use of published or unpublished material as well as not giving proper credit to the source. The term plagiarism includes, but is not limited to: a) use by paraphrase or direct quotation of the published or unpublished work of another person without fully or properly crediting the author with footnotes, citations or bibliographical reference b) unacknowledged use of materials prepared by another person or agency engaged in the selling of term papers or other academic materials c) unacknowledged use of work/materials that have been produced through collaboration with others without release in writing from collaborators. Therefore, cheating and plagiarism will NO T be tolerated. The student will receive a 0 on the assignment for cheating or plagiarism and in severe cases, the student will fail the course. The instructors WILL report any case of academic dishonesty to the proper channels within the university. Students with any questions or hesitations should feel free to talk to us. Academic Integrity Statement: For each major assignment, students will need to include the following statement: Exams—“I have not received nor given any assistance during this exam nor have I seen anyone else do so.”; Papers and Project—“I have not received /given excessive aid for this paper nor have I copied someone else’s work. I have given proper credit to all the sources that I have used in the assignment.” Students will need to write it on the exam or type it on the cover sheet of the research paper (along with a signature and the date). Class Courtesy: D istractions in class (i.e. cell phones ringing, text messaging, surfing the web) are extremely disrespectful and rude, not only to the instructors but to one’s fellow classmates. Therefore, use of electronic devices such as cell phones, laptop computers and mp3 players is FO RBID D EN in class. Please be thoughtful of your conduct in cla ss. 3
  4. 4. Students Rights and Responsibilities: To know and understand the policies that affect your rights and responsibilities as a student at UT Tyler, please follow this link: Grade Replacement/Forgiveness: If you are repeating this course for a grade replacement, you must file an intent to receive grade forgiveness with the registrar by the 12th day of class. Failure to do so will result in both the original and repeated grade being used to calculate your overall grade point average. Undergraduates will receive grade forgiveness (grade replacement) for only three course repeats; graduates, for two course repeats during his/her career at UT Tyler. State-M andated Course D rop Policy: Texas law prohibits a student who began college for the first time in Fall 2007 or thereafter from dropping more than six courses during their entire undergraduate career. This includes courses dropped at another 2-year or 4-year Texas public college or university. For purposes of this rule, a dropped course is any course that is dropped after the 12th day of class (See Schedule of Classes for the specific date). Exceptions to the 6-drop rule may be found in the catalog. Petitions for exemptions must be submitted to the Registrar's Office and must be accompanied by documentation of the extenuating circumstance. Please contact the Registrar's Office if you have any questions. D isability Services: In accordance with federal law, a student requesting accommodation must provide documentation of his/her disability to the Disability Support Services counselor. If you have a disability, including a learning disability, for which you request an accommodation, please contact Ida MacDonald in the Disability Support Services office in UC 282, or call (903) 566-7079. Student Absence due to Religious O bservance: Students who anticipate being absent from class due to a religious observance are requested to inform the instructor of such absences by the second class meeting of the semester. 4
  5. 5. Student Absence for University-Sponsored Events and Activities: If you intend to be absent for a university-sponsored event or activity, you (or the event sponsor) must notify the instructor at least two weeks prior to the date of the planned absence. At that time the instructor will set a date and time when make-up assignments will be completed. Social Security and FERPA Statement: It is the policy of The University of Texas at Tyler to protect the confidential nature of social security numbers. The University has changed its computer programming so that all students have an identification number. The electronic transmission of grades (e.g., via e-mail) risks violation of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act; grades will not be transmitted electronically. Emergency Exits and Evacuation: Everyone is required to exit the building when a fire alarm goes off. Follow your instructor’s directions regarding the appropriate exit. If you require assistance during an evacuation, inform your instructor in the first week of class. Do not re-enter the building unless given permission by University Police, Fire department, or Fire Prevention Services. 5
