Reading will be required through the semester, giving students critical insights into the creative process.
Instructor will give questions for each reading assignments. Hand in your answers before the class begins. Assignments not completed by the due date are automatically downgraded by the week.

Make your presentation as engaging and informative as possible. Do not present general overview of everything, but highlight the points that are relevant to the projects
The presentation should be less than 10 minutes.
