There are 3 main assignments in this course, 2 of which are weighted quite heavily so proceed with care.

  • Design Strategies Journal (30%)
  • Midterm Exam (20%)
  • Final Project (40%)
  • The other 10% of your grade is based on participation.Because we will be working collaboratively on many assignments, and because learning is a communal effort, your regular attendance is vital. Each absence beyond three will result in a loss of 50 points. Extensive tardiness will be considered in assessing absences. You will also lose participation points for the following: texting in class, using your phone for any reason, using your computer irresponsibly in class, doing homework for another class, doing anything that distracts from the culture of respect and professionalism that a class such as this requires.
