An Architect’S Foray Into Honors, Betsy West Oct 2001

An Architect’S Foray Into Honors, Betsy West

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

In universities across the country, faculty struggle with the task of bringing creative arts education into the Honors curriculum. I am, therefore, only one of many who have attempted this, and as an Architecture faculty member I can only truly speak to the introduction of visual material and visual awareness. In the course of teaching an Honors seminar, however, I have come to believe that there are, indeed, strategies which make teaching creative arts in an Honors curriculum both possible and enjoyable. I also believe it can be done in such a way as to make the information both accessible ...


Honors Students In The Creative Writing Classroom: Sequence And Community, Margaret Szumowski Oct 2001

Honors Students In The Creative Writing Classroom: Sequence And Community, Margaret Szumowski

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

It is the end of the semester here at Gasoline Alley in Springfield, Massachusetts, and the creative writing students are about to give their readings. It is an artsy setting, the SEE café and gallery. Some of the students who will read today hope to transfer into the engineering program at the University of Massachusetts. They are computer-wise, bright students. Others are candidates for the nursing program. Three women hope to transfer to Mt. Holyoke or Smith. But here they are today, reading their poems at a gallery they have never visited before, with African masks all around them. The ...


Seeing The World Anew: Creative Arts In The Honors Curriculum, Sara Sanders Oct 2001

Seeing The World Anew: Creative Arts In The Honors Curriculum, Sara Sanders

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

In the sixteen-year history of the Honors Program at Coastal Carolina University, some three hundred students have completed the program. We have graduated only two fine arts majors, and we currently have a student who is double majoring in art and marine science. Most of our students are science majors. In order to be invited into the honors program, students have to be excellent in verbal and analytical skills, but research on multiple intelligences (Gardner, Multiple) has shown us that those are only two of many ways to make sense of the world. Honors students are usually skilled learners in ...


The Evolution Of Aesthetic Response In Honors Students, Tammy Ostrander Oct 2001

The Evolution Of Aesthetic Response In Honors Students, Tammy Ostrander

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

In many college courses, the goal of teaching is to convey content so that the students in the course can become literate in a certain discipline. In such courses, the students learn information with which to answer questions appropriate to the field of study. In a course on the arts, however, the goal may not be answering the questions, but asking them. Due to the philosophical nature of the question ‘What is Art?’ for example, faculty members teaching a course on the arts need to realize that students may never fully grasp the concept of what art is. A nonetheless ...


Bringing Imagination Into The Community Through A Poetry-Writing Honors Course, Diann Mccabe Oct 2001

Bringing Imagination Into The Community Through A Poetry-Writing Honors Course, Diann Mccabe

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

For the past few years, I have taught an honors course here at Southwest Texas State University called “Teaching Poetry to Children” that trains ten honors students to teach poetry writing workshops at Crockett Elementary School in San Marcos, Texas twice a week for eight weeks. After a few weeks of immersion in Kenneth Koch’s books Rose, Where Did You Get that Red? Teaching Great Poetry to Children and Wishes, Lies, and Dreams: Teaching Young Children to Write Poetry and equipped with favorite poems from several different cultural traditions (American, British, Spanish, Chinese, and African among them), our ten ...


Could Aristotle Teach The Honors Courses I Envision? Theory And Practice In The Arts, L. Luis Lopez Oct 2001

Could Aristotle Teach The Honors Courses I Envision? Theory And Practice In The Arts, L. Luis Lopez

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

In general, art survey and art history courses focus on the influence of culture on art and art on culture, and the changes in art from century to century or from any period to any period. When an art survey or art history section is taught at the honors level, what results is a class with fewer students moving at a faster pace so more material can be covered, the introduction of discussion into what is usually a lecture class, and a more concentrated study of the material presented. This, of course, is the case for many general education courses ...


Media Literacy And Liberation: Honors Students As Prophetic Artists And Critics, Page R. Laws Oct 2001

Media Literacy And Liberation: Honors Students As Prophetic Artists And Critics, Page R. Laws

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

Kulturkritiker Cornel West focuses on artists and critics of color in the statement above, and his words are therefore particularly pertinent to students at my home institution, Norfolk State University, the fifth-largest historically black university in the U.S. His refreshing radicalism, however, can serve as a universal call to arm all students, and especially honors students, with the weapons of media literacy. Empowering students as makers and critics of film and video art serves the most vital interests of interdisciplinary honors education, and this essay explores some ways of training both types of “cultural workers,” i.e. student filmmakers ...


“The Play’S The Thing”: Theater Arts And Liberal Learning, Margaret Franson Oct 2001

“The Play’S The Thing”: Theater Arts And Liberal Learning, Margaret Franson

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

The recurrent disposition to view undergraduate learning as most valuable when it prepares students for specific careers by equipping them with the particular “skill sets” of their chosen occupations has led invariably to a number of unfortunate consequences. Foremost among them has been the distressing tendency to comprehend and design even music, theater, and dance activities exclusively as pre-professional training exercises. This over-reverence for technique often weakens the inherent powers of the performing arts to deepen self-knowledge, to develop the virtues most useful in the pursuit of truth, to build community, to enhance appreciation for the ways in which texts ...


When Austen’S Heroines Meet: A Play In One Act, Stephanie Renee Fosnight Oct 2001

When Austen’S Heroines Meet: A Play In One Act, Stephanie Renee Fosnight

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

SETTING: The ladies’ parlour of a wayside inn in ——shire, England. Sometime in the early 1800s. A sofa, three chairs and two small tables are grouped companionably before the upstage fireplace with mantel. A door stage right leads to the garden and a door to the left leads into the inn.
NOTE: During the dream sequences, the major character plays an older version of herself while the other ladies don small accessories and play the other characters in the dream. The furniture is slightly rearranged to suggest a different room.

Jesters Freed From Their Jack-In-The-Boxes: Or Springing Creativity Loose From Traditionally Entrenched Honors Students, Leslie Donovan Oct 2001

Jesters Freed From Their Jack-In-The-Boxes: Or Springing Creativity Loose From Traditionally Entrenched Honors Students, Leslie Donovan

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

Many people in our society manage adequately all their lives without ever flexing a creative muscle. Yet, most of us involved in Honors education expect and want more for our students. We know that those who resist using creativity in their lives and work will be unlikely to push beyond the traditional boundaries of scholastic analysis. Further, we reason that, by operating beyond such boundaries, our students may someday find a cure for cancer, recognize signs marking sentient life on other planets, or move people to leave hatred of differences behind. We realize that such dreams are possible only if ...

Honors And The Creative Arts In Nursing: Music Therapy To Decrease Anxiety In Critical Care Patients, Ellen Buckner, Cynthia Leach-Fuller Oct 2001

Honors And The Creative Arts In Nursing: Music Therapy To Decrease Anxiety In Critical Care Patients, Ellen Buckner, Cynthia Leach-Fuller

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

In nursing education, we strive for a delicate balance between the science and the art of nursing. While curricular objectives address standards of practice assuring competencies in pathophysiology, pharmacology, clinical fundamentals, medical nursing, surgical nursing, and other domains of health science, we also purport to produce a practitioner with sensitivity and compassion. The honors in nursing option, begun in 2000 at UAB, has allowed us to push the creative side of nursing to a higher level. Honors students have clearly taken this opportunity with enthusiasm. Our first nursing honors graduate, Ms. Cynthia Leach-Fuller, investigated an application of music therapy in ...
