Course Description
This course focuses on art that imaginatively explores the quest archetype. Students will learn the structure of the quest whether heroic, ironic, or spiritual. We will experience the quest myth through various cultural expressions including visual, performing, and literary arts, developing, in the process, an educated Do not meddle in the affairs of aesthetic judgment. Our objective is to work with a wizards, for they are subtle limited number of texts in and quick to anger. their entirety rather than a J. R. R. Tolkien (1892 -1973) larger quantity of abridged texts. Our study of quests will be in-depth rather than superficial. In this class students will: Understand and appreciate quest art as a source of intellectual, emotional, and aesthetic human experience that enriches the participant. Read and view art in contexts such as nationality, historical period, ethnicity, and culture. Learn art terms that facilitate appreciation of works. Use critical thinking skills to actively engage works of art. Participate in an active classroomindividual activities, group work, oral presentations, etc.

3. If you foresee a problem meeting a deadline talk to me as soon as possible. 4. Please do not show up late or skip class. 5. Please do not print the morning of class. 6. Please do not use a poor quality (ink-runningout) printer. Daily Quizzes
Quizzes will be given at the beginning of most classes. The purpose of these quizzes is not to trick you but to reward you with points for attending class and for doing your reading carefully. To illustrate my goodwill, during the quiz you can use any handwritten reading notes you have taken (not notes written in your book, however).Quizzes cover the days reading and can take three different forms: 1) formal five question quizzes, 2) cold call quizzes where I call on students randomly to respond to questions orally, and 3) various in-class writing tasks. These quizzes cannot be made up under any circumstances except University excused absences. Since each quiz is only worth five points, missing one or two will not damage your grade, but be careful as these points do add up.

Reflective Learning Blog


At least once a week you will reflect on the class and what you have learned in a blog set up on our blackboard page. In this you will account for: What have you learned this week How have you participated this week in class? How are you going to improve for this next week or what area would you like to focus on? These, combined with your attendance, will be the basis of your participation grade.

About once a week, we will have discussion board responses based upon what we read. Usually students enjoy this project because it is a forum to express your own opinion about what you have read, and it is also interesting to see what other people think.

Defining Art PowerPoint Journal Entries


I have put together a self guide d PowerPoint that guides you through some thought questions and journal entries. I combine images and text to help you engage the ideas we discuss in the first few days of class.

Course Policies

A VOID THE W RATH OF U NIVERSITY I NSTRUCTORS


EMPIRICALLY PROVEN METHODS GRADES COMPLETE all assignments on time and in the format requested. PRESENT all assignments in a professional manner, using a high quality, reliable printer Never submit handwritten or electronic copies unless instructed to. Never expect your instructor to accept an electronic version of an assignment because you cannot make it to class. Take the initiative to arrange to get the assignment to the instructor early. READ assigned texts and bring them to class. DEMONSTRATE that you are involved in the class by attending regularly and participating actively. SHOW respect to your instructor by letting him/her know ahead of time if you will need to miss class, finding out from a few of your classmates what was missed (never ask Did I miss anything important?). RESPECT your instructors time by making questions pertinent during class, keeping questions before and after class to a minimum, making questions specific and focused, and scheduling to meet your instructor outside of class for more in-depth or lengthy questions. material, develop skills in the subject, and improve your performance and skills. Especially avoid those questions that are centered on how to get the grade you want rather than skills and learning. The descriptions of the grades should be sufficient (A is for excellent work, for example.

The Hobbit Readers Guide


As you finish your reading of the novel, you will create a project that introduces it to a reading club. You will use graphic strategies to interest potential readers in the novel and to help them engage with it meaningfully.

Quest Maps
A quest map analyzes, in writing and graphically, the specific context of a heroic journey. You will complete three: a scriptural example, The Odyssey, a personal experience.

Citizen Kane Quiz


For one of our movies, I will have an in-class quiz that you will need to complete as you watch.

Mini Research Presentations


At several points in the semester, you will receive an assignment to research a topic and be prepared to offer a brief summary of what you found to the class.

Fine Arts Attendance


You will be invited to attend 4 fine arts events and have conversations about each with students from our class who were at the same event. This will require arrangement and planning on your part to ensure that at least three other students are willing to attend the same event. Students often lose points on this assignment because they do not engage in the conversation. Use our class room discussions as models for what you can talk about: quests, artistry, likes, dislikes, quality of the performance, characteristics of the piece, etc. While you can discuss your emotional reactions, you should not simply leave it at I loved it or I was bored. Push yourself to describe what you liked and disliked. Also, respond meaningfully to other students writing. The back and forth of responding and replying should become a written conversation. It is easiest if you click the button to subscribe to the forum on I-Learn. You will then receive an email when someone posts. The conversation must be completed within a week of the performance. Each of the four events and discussion boards are worth 25 points apiece.

ASK the right questionsones that help you understand

Movie Journal
For our last movie, I will provide a journal activity that will be done in class and will help you explore the quest theme. We will watch the movie together in class, and the activity will allow you to create notes on your viewing.

Exams
We will have two exams that will combine some memorization of terms and works with short essay responses.

In giving feedback on your written work, I see myself as a coach. In this role, I try to encourage you in things that you are doing well. I also try to provide you with constructive feedback as a reader of your work. I often react to your work as I read through it, with notes in the text and margins that reflect what I am thinking and my reactions to your ideas. Since audience awareness is essential in effective college-level work, my comments are intended to help you understand how someone besides yourself reacts to your written message.

In addition to these comments directly on your work, I will usually provide you with a feedback form, giving you an overview your performance on specific skills pertaining to each assignment. In this class you are not in competition with each other for a grade, but you are evaluated on your mastery of the skills essential to the assignment. I hope that these feedback forms will help you improve as you move from assignment to assignment. Of course a grade will be attached to your written work, based upon the project as a whole. This is holistic grading which means that the grade reflects the quality of the entire project The grade will be applied in accordance with the scale provided here. I am always happy to discuss any graded assignment with you, but to encourage you to take responsibility for your own work, I need you to do a couple of things for me. First, wait 24 hours to schedule an appointment with me. This will give both you and I some distance from the paper and some objectivity. Second, this will also provide some time for you to think of some revision ideas for your paper. Please come to this conference with at least three ideas to improve your paper, and this will be a starting point for our discussion. Please be aware that no single paper or assignment can destroy your grade. I make an effort in the class to balance the points that come from the papers with other assignments such as quizzes and draft work.

instructions, reminders, etc., and you will be expected to access those before our class period. In addition, lost or missed handouts can be accessed through blackboard. All major assignments will be posted as McKenzie attachments on discussion boards. If you access your campus email rarely, forward you r mail to the address you use.

Conferences
I always love to collaborate with you in your reading and writing. Please feel free to come by my office or chat after class. Remember that I am here to be a sounding board and a reader for you. You cannot simply send me an email draft of your paper asking me to make it an A or to fix it for you. The paper would become mine instead of yours. So, come to our conferences with three or four areas you would like some feedback and input on.

Awesome Help for All Students


Go to http://www.byui.edu/AcademicLearning or the McKay Library 272 for information about how the writing, reading, math, and study skills centers can help you increase success in all of your classes. To schedule a tutor for a specific class, log on to Tutor Request under Student Services and follow the instructions. The BYU-Idaho Catalog clearly describes academic honesty on; I highly recommend that you review this section. Grade Scale Please consult the catalog A = 100- 93% for specific definitions of Excellent A- = 93-90% plagiarism (for example, you can plagiarize B+ = 89-87% unintentionally) and B = 86-84% dishonesty as well as the Very good associated penalties (for B- = 83-80% example, expulsion and/or failing the class). C+ = 77-79% In addition, adhering to Average the Honor Code will help C = 76-74% bring the spirit into our C- = 73-70% classroom. Failure to D+ = 69-67% follow the guidelines included in the Honor D = 66-64% Below average Code will result in a conference with me and D- = 63-60% an absence for the day in F = 59-0% the case of physical Incomplete appearance. While I realize how important texting, email, Facebook, and the like are for you, please be courteous to your classmates and

Attendance
Since much of our learning will take place in class as we discuss, analyze, and write together, attendance is mandatory. You can earn up to a 5% increase with your perfect attendance. You are allowed two absences, and each absence thereafter will result in a final grade reduction. Eight absences or more will be grounds for failure of the course. I make no distinction between excused and unexcused absences (unless they are university sanctioned absences. Three late arrivals (after the prayer) will equal an absence. Absence is never an excuse for a late assignment, no exceptions, so talk with me before the due date if you are having problems. Also, quizzes cannot be made up under any circumstances. You are expected to come to class daily with your reading and writing assignments accomplished and ready to discuss ideas with the class and small groups as suggested in the BYU-I Learning Model. If you do not participate in class, your learning will be hindered, and your grade will be affected. Your grade can be reduced by up to 20% if over the course of the semester you have failed to be an active participant in the learning of the class. You will account for your participation and learning in weekly reflective learning blog entries.

instructor by refraining from their use during our class time together. Unless I indicate otherwise, laptops are not needed in class and should be stowed away out of sight. Use of cell phones or laptops during class will be disruptive, and you will be marked absent as a result. Remember that attendance is important for your grade and your behavior in class does as well. BYU-Idaho is committed to providing a working and learning atmosphere which reasonably accommodates qualified persons with disabilities. If you have any disability which may impair your ability to complete this course successfully, please contact the Services for Students with Disabilities Office at (208) 496-1158. Reasonable academic accommodations are reviewed for all students who have qualified documented disabilities. Services are coordinated with the student and instructor by this office. If you need assistance or feel you have been unlawfully discriminated against on the basis of disability, you may seek resolution through established policy and procedures by contacting the Personnel Office at (208) 496-1130.

Students with Disabilities

Students will have better luck if they start at the bottom; itll save a lot of extra headaches. Students end up talking to the teacher anyway. Teachers have the right to hear student concerns about them first. By going to someone above them, students are not giving teachers the opportunity to represent themselves fairly. ... Another concern students have is the subject material being presented to the class. ... [BYUI] cant skip teaching sensitive issues. Were a Church school and we must give the same education as one would get at another [university].

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits sex discrimination against any participant in an educational program which receives federal funds, including federal loans and grants. Title IX also covers student-to-student sexual harassment. If you encounter unlawful sexual harassment or gender-based discrimination, please contact the Personnel Office at (208) 4961130

Sexual Harassment

Grievances
I make every reasonable effort to consider your attitudes, values, beliefs, and feelings as I choose material to teach course-related concepts. I take great care in choosing the works we read. In the unlikely event that I offend you or, in your opinion, I overstep my bounds, please come talk to me about it. I promise to listen to your concern, to take it seriously, and to explain my actions, if necessary. Follow this advice, offered by the Savior: if a teacher offends you, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone (Mat. 18:15). Finally, consider the following from a 1995 Scroll article: There are several steps students can take if they have any concerns about a teacher, his/her teaching method, or the way students are treated in the classroom. The first and most effective way is to talk to the teacher directly. This step solves 90% of problems between teachers and students, [Max] Checketts [academic vice president at BYUI] said. If students dont understand what is being taught, they should go directly to the teacher for clarification. Students have the right to contact the professor and make an appointment with him or her to discuss concerns. Going to someone above the teacher first is a waste of time ... Darin L.

Throughout the inhabited world, in all times and under every circumstance, the myths of man have flourished; and they have been the living inspiration of whatever else may have appeared out of the activities of the human body and mind. It would not be too much to say that myth is the secret opening through which the inexhaustible energies of the cosmos pour into human cultural manifestation. Religions, philosophies, arts, the social forms of primitive and historic man, prime discoveries in science and technology, the very dreams that blister sleep, boil up from the basic, magic ring of myth. Joseph Campbell (1904- 1987)
