operational contract between the professor and the student Read it carefully The information contained herein is intended as a guide to allow the student to know what the policies of this class are

examinations with any student At the end of a lecture see me and we will book your appointment I do not respond to unsolicited email THE COURSE All around us in today39s United States are buildings that offer a means to travel back to the remote past This seminar will examine the architectural styles of ancient Greece and Rome and the architectural inspiration that other cultures and other centuries have derived from those sources The student will gain a useful familiarity with the original principles of classical architecture and the stylistic versions and their cultural meanings that have shaped subsequent environments The content and methodology of this seminar are entirely standard within the discipline of Art History The student will gain a useful familiarity with the original principles of classical architecture and the stylistic versions and their cultural meanings that have shaped subsequent environments Initial class sessions will be on a mastery of the architectural orders of ancient Greece The monuments for our focus will be the architectural program of the Athenian Acropolis which was directed by Pericles during the second half of the fifth century BCE The second component of classical style will be provided by a consideration of the decorative and structural properties of works selected from the Roman Republic the Empire and Early Christian periods roughly spanning the first century BCE to the fourth century CE The remainder of the class sessions will be devoted to the examination various classical revivals Specific monuments will be selected from the Italian Renaissance ca 14001600 the International Baroque ca 1600 1700 and Neoclassical designs from 17001990 Also we will examine the inclusion of classical ideas by the dominant architectural theories of the twentieth centurythe International Style and PostModemism LECTURES TELEPHONES AND PAGERS MUST BE TURNED OFF DURING THE LECTURE PERIODS Lectures will be held twice a week During the lectures material will be presented that is based upon the assigned reading for that day The points of the lectures will be demonstrated by the projection of slides architectural works Questions about the material under consideration are strongly encouraged The lecture meeting will be the best time for the student to ask about any aspect of the readings he or she found difficult or unclear ATTENDANCE The days that you come to class are entirely your own business WHEN you come during lectures and examinations is entirely the professor s business Class begins promptly at its appointed time Do not come late thereby interrupting your peers and the professor When class has started we are busy do not bother us You will know that our class is underway because the d00rs t0 the lecture hall will be shut do not come in FMS 130 Gantt 2 If you need to see the professor or a peer wait until the class is over NOTE This policy also extends to activity within the lecture hall if a rest facility is needed avail yourself of its comforts before the class period Should the university officially close for some unforeseen eventisnow ice nuclear attack Satan Escapes from Helliwe will not have class If the university is open I will be here and class will meet Then each member our university community must decide the risks to person and property for him or herself and act thereon GRADES The grade for this course will be determined by the average of four examinations Your only opportunities for grades are to take the examinations at their appointed times and to submit any revisions that are needed to improve upon examination essays Do not request special favors that cannot be granted to all of your peers quotextra workquot does not exist These examinations are scheduled see WORK DUE You should mark those dates on your personal calendar immediately Examinations are given neither earlier nor later than the scheduled slot Makeup examinations are not given Should you miss either EXAM I II or III the nal grade will be determined by an average of three grades rather than four Should you miss two of these examinations a grade of zero will be recorded for each of the missed exams In determining your final grade for the course the lowest exam grade will not be dropped The final examinationEXAM IVion December 12 is required of all students see Undergraduate Bulletin under quotGradingquot if it is missed a zero will be averaged with the other grades rather than an INC incomplete assigned as the course grade In keeping with the policy of this university which has no standardized grading scale I have determined that the scale for this course will be A 10095 B 9492 B 9188 B 8785 C 8482 C 8178 C 7775 D 7472 D 7168 D 6765 F 64 POSTED GRADES In order to fully comply with the Federal Rights of Privacy Act grades are never posted or given out over the telephone or intemet EXAMINATIONS Blue Books are required Only complete no pages missing Blue Books with a signed honor pledge will be acceptable Inkblue or blackis the only proper medium for your examination writing Your submitted examinations must fulfill all of the above requirements or they will not be accepted for grading The examinations for FMS 130 will follow usual practices for art history surveys and each will consist of three sections 1 Identi cationsprovide the crucial data for major artifacts Information such as the title of the work its date its location the name of the architect the style or period to which it belongs and its culture or country of association or artist39s nationality will be required Information for this section will be taken directly from your text unless otherwise indicated during lectures 2 Essayswill concentrate on issues of style and culture In studying the material you should always construct a clear idea of the importance that works hold in the history of art Your essay should contain accurate and specific information from your text and the lecturesnever vague generalizations and uninforme observations A sound art historical essay at the introductory level should require approximately forty minutes of concentrated writing on the given topic The essay should be written in a clear concise standard form for essays in the English language 3 Termsnoften have a specialized usage in art and that is certainly the case with the medium of architecture Mastery of terms is essential since they are often keys to understanding both the general properties of a style and the specific properties of an artifact Should you be required to define a term do so fully short answers may not be clear enough to allow you to receive credit FMS 130 Gantt 3 Each examination will test only the material text and lecture covered since the previous exam Note Spelling is essential As in any discipline the student is required to know the material 2 2 5 is not correct and neither is Bruneleschi for Brunelleschi No personal electronic equipment computers PDAs for example may be employed during the class periods when examinations are to bebeing given THE WRITING COMPONENTS OF THE COURSE As a class we will do short 5 mins informal writing sessions on terms and concepts that are under consideration These weekly l4 informal exercises are for practice a means to focus on the material and to increase comfort and ease in thinking about ideas and expressing your thoughts I will read your exercises and offer observations and return then to you These exercises are never graded Your major essays for the four examinations will be marked for style as well as contentonly content will be graded In this part of the class assignments we will be working together to achieve a greater facility in working with examination essays For example how does one read an essay question and then use the question to construct a response How do you organize your thoughts in constructing your essay How do I judge which points are of primary interest and which points may be extraneous Of course we shall always be striving toward improving our comfort level with basic writing problems If an essay needs to be revised for problems in style you must make the required revisions or the grade for the examination will not be recorded Revisions will need to incorporate all suggestions made on your returned graded examinations Additional material may be added to your original essay in order to improve upon fullness or accuracy of content or clarity of style Individual conferences are welcome and may be scheduled as needed Each revised essay will earn five additional points to the examination grade REQUIRED TEXT Trachtenberg Marvin and Isabelle Hyman Architecture from Prehistory to Post Modernity 239 Ed Englewood Cliffs New Jersey
