GRADING POLICY:
The grades in this class will be determined by the following criteria:

Presentations/critiques: Students will be evaluated through in class critiques as to
professional seriousness and commitment to the concerned subject. This includes
preparation, content depth and vitality of resources related to content. There are 2 critiques
and 2 presentaions in the course of the semester.

Participation: It is important that you be at all lectures and class seminars and that you are
engaged in the dialogue with the rest of the class. You will be deducted for absences that
are not medically prohibited*. Missing a cumulative total of critique, lecture or demo class
days will result in an unsatisfactory evaluation.

10% Notebook: your notebook is the critical link to the process you are involved with and its evolution. It is important that you take class notes and record your research and source material to assist in the evaluation of your progress.
