Suppose that Saint Leo University was considering doing away with all theatre classes,

Why Study Theatre?

Instructions: Suppose that Saint Leo University was considering doing away with all theatre classes,

even for non-English majors. (This is not really under consideration, thank goodness! This scenario is

hypothetical.)

Your assignment is to write a letter to the President and Board of Trustees outlining the benefits of

studying theatre, keeping our core values in mind. What have you learned about the theatre this term that

could help you communicate the value of this ancient art form? How can you apply some of the skills of

this craft to other areas of your life/career? How does participation in and patronage of the theatre reflect

our core values? This is a persuasive piece, so make sure you support your claims with thoughtful details.

The paper must be:

 Double-spaced

 In 12-point font

 Between 500 and 1000 words

While this is a letter, it should reflect standard essay form with consideration to purpose, question at

issue, assumptions, etc. See the rubric on the next page for grading criteria (worth up to 100 points).

Submit this assignment to the Dropbox no later than Sunday 11:59 PM EST/EDT of Module 8. (This

Dropbox basket is linked to Turnitin.)

“The drama is not dead but liveth, and contains the germs of better things.”

Describe the kind of resistance that might be encountered during the implementation of the policy.

In continuation of the policy change cycle, a policy proposal is prepared and reviewed for adoption by key decision makers. Therefore, it is essential that the proposal be technically and administratively effective, politically acceptable, and legally and ethically defensible. In this assignment, you will learn how to prepare and review a policy proposal for adoption by key decision makers.

Tasks:

On the basis of the readings and your research, create a 3- to 4-page paper addressing the following:

  • Discuss a draft policy or plan for review. What problem does it address, and what solutions does it propose?
  • Identify the possible stakeholders’ interests and concerns regarding the draft and proposed solutions in particular.
  • Identify the risks associated with the proposed policy.
  • On the basis of your analysis of the second and third points above, suggest modifications to the proposal to enhance its chances for adoption.
  • Describe the goals of the involved parties in preparing the draft. What influence efforts (if any) do you see represented in the draft? What additional influence efforts might you recommend to convince decision makers to consider the proposed changes and, ultimately, adopt them?
  • Identify the actions and resources required for implementing the proposal once adopted.
  • Describe the kind of resistance that might be encountered during the implementation of the policy. What are some steps that leaders of policy advocacy efforts can take to overcome it?

Your paper should utilize a minimum of two resources from professional literature in your research. Professional literature may include the Argosy University online library resources; relevant textbooks; peer-reviewed journal articles; and websites created by professional organizations, agencies, or institutions (.edu, .org, or .gov).
