Student learning goals
General method of instruction
Students should be ready for a high level of participation, interaction, and creation. Students should have some independence of vision and direction, as the assignment requirements will be broadly drawn. Creative media responses to literary work will be part of the weekly class assignments, in addition to readings. Students should be ready to discuss literary work. Students will be introduced to, and must be comfortable with, media technologies, and have basic Macintosh computer skills.
It is highly suggested that students have taken at least one creative writing class, and/or have confidence in their writing ability and/or have interest in contemporary trends in literature and the arts. It is also highly suggested that students have taken at least one media-oriented class, or have confidence with computer applications.
Class assignments and grading
At least 50% of the class grade will be determined by the art you produce. Other assignments may include written responses for readings and class presentations. Everyone is expected to participate in class discussions and crits.
