Sample Assignment from Bill Jahnel
The PerformingHeARTS project at Palomar College this year is doing a set of events based on Gay and Lesbian issues and history. Last Summer at Bluefish Cove was one of the first major American plays produced about lesbian issues. This play will be performed during the weeks of April 13-22. (You can find ticket information at: http://www.palomar.edu/performingarts/index.htm) By attending the play, you may write a 2-3 page summary of your experience discussing how the views of women and lesbianism presented in the play might be historically different or similar to issues today. This will be worth 1 point towards your final grade.
Now, for ALL the marbles, you may also go to the Performing Hearts blog at http://www2.palomar.edu/performinghearts/ and contribute intelligently and with at least a paragraph or two of reasoned analysis, discussion, or inquiry at least 5 times to the threads, that too may count as a point of extra credit. (Please see me about receiving credit for this assignment if you decide to post under a pseudonym.)
That’s right: This assignment gives you the possibility to get 2 of your 3 extra credit points!
