Theater Question

Learning Goal: I’m working on a theater multi-part question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.

For each prompt (a prompt can be a term, phrase, or concept) given below, please write:

a) The author who wrote about the term/phrase/concept. (You only have to cite ONE author for each concept, but you can definitely cite multiple authors. Citing multiple authors may help you to give a fuller definition of the prompt than only citing one. But you do not have to cite all of the authors who wrote about a particular term.) (0.5 point)

b) The meaning of the term/phrase/concept, as it pertains to the topics covered in this course. (You should plan on writing at least a few sentences to give an adequate definition.) (1 point)

c) A television example that illustrates the term/phrase/concept. (You only need to write about one example: a television show OR episode, OR character, OR plotline from a TV show, OR a block of shows, OR an entire network. You may give more than one example if you wish but only one is required. Please note that you must write about a television example, not a film example – anything that is a serial program [that is, consisting of multiple episodes] on broadcast TV, cable TV, or streaming platforms that you view in your domestic space, like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, HBO Go, CBS All Access, etc., counts as “television.”) (0.5 point)

d) How the television example relates to, and illustrates, the term/phrase/concept. Make sure to refer to at least one idea or argument made by the author (whom you named in part a). (You should plan on writing 1 to 2 paragraphs—6 to 12 sentences at least—to explain how your example relates to the term/phrase/concept.) (2 points)

You must format your answer according to parts a, b, c, and d, like this:

1. (term/phrase/concept)

a. (author’s name)

b. (definition of term/phrase/concept)

c. (name of an example, like “Game of Thrones”)

d. (how the example relates to the term/phrase/concept)

Points will be deducted for poor spelling, grammar, and/or punctuation (up to 1 point). Points will also be deducted for improper formatting – proper formatting = listing out the different parts of each answer as a., b., c., d. (up to 1 point).

Each response to a prompt is worth up to 4 points.

Assignment 1 Prompts:

  1. how television is like theater

  3. how reality TV relates to performance in the “neoliberal workplace”
