ART 200 GANTT 1 TELEPHONES AND PAGERS MUST BE TURNED OFF DURING THE LECTURE PERIODS Art 200 01 Survey History of Western Architecture Fall 2009 Richard Gantt 288 Cone THE CONTRACT This syllabus is the 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 and to help herhim achieve success within the structure of the course Any effort is subject to error should this syllabus con ict with any stated policy of the university the syllabus will be superseded CONSULTATIONS I will be glad to schedule individual office appointments to discuss class material from lectures readings or examinations with any student At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 Art 200 is the introductory course on the history of western architecture The content provides the student with an overview of the components of style theory structure and material as represented by architecture from antiquity to that of this century We are also concerned with the roles of function and meaning in architecture39s social context Since this is an enormous undertaking the material for study will be necessarily selective The content of the course is not concerned with quotappreciationquot nor is it specially designed for quotnonmajorsquot Rather it is a genuine art history course on the introductory level Therefore any university student should be able to handle the required work and succeed in the class The professor and text will present material within a common art historical perspective context and methodology and the student will be tested on these same aspects Additionally it is intended that the course serve as an introduction upon which the student may build by taking more advanced courses within the discipline The Department of Art offers a selection of these courses each semester LECTURES TELEPHONES AND PAGERS MUST BE TURNED OFF DURING THE LECTURE PERIODS Lectures will be held three times a week During the lectures material will be presented that is based upon the assigned reading see WORK DUE The points of the lectures will be demonstrated by the projection of slides of architectural works drawings diagrams etcifor instance Questions about the material under consi deration 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 Consider we already have forty ve scheduled appointments this semester amounting to a total of over thirtyseven hours Those hours are important in mastering the material for this course I have noticed that students who include the lectures and careful note taking as part of their regimen of study generally have much better success than those who do not 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 professor When class has started we are busy do not bother us You will know that our class is underway because the doors to the lecture hall will be shut do not come in If you need to see the professor or a peer wait until the class is over NOTE This policy also extends to activity ART 200 GANTT 2 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 At that juncture each member our university community must decide the risks to person and property for himself or herself and act upon the dictates of conscience GRADES The grade for this course will be determined by the average of four examination scores Your only opportunities for grades are to take the examinations at their appointed times 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 final 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 The nal examination EXAM IV on December 16 is required of all students see Undergraduate Bulletin under quot Gradingquot if it is missed an F rather than an IN incomplete wil be 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 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 online 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 quot must fulfill all of the above 39 or thev will not be accepted for grading The examinations for Art 200 will consist of three sections 1 Identi cationsprovide the crucial data for major artifacts Information such as the name of the architect hisher nationality the title of the work its date city and country of location the styleperiod to which it belongs will be required Information for this section will be taken directly from your text unless otherwise indicated during lectures 2 Stylistic analysisan unknown work will be projected for you to provide statements which detail the crucial stylistic properties of the work Termsoften have a specialized usage in art and 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 are unlikely to be clear enough to allow you to receive credit 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 Ludwig Mies van der Roeh for Ludwig Mies van der Rohe No personal electronic equipment computers PDAs
