Submission Requirements

Your presentation is part of your submission.

For techincal presentations:
Turn in notes in hard copy and in your class folder

For theory presentations:
Turn in articles and notes with supporting images if applicable.


Grading

You will be graded on how well you research your topic, how well you present it, and how well, if at all, you expand it. By expanding it I mean adding your own ideas or interpretations. For technical, it might be how you add your own technique to the method or how you use it creatively in your work. For theory, it might be how you interpret the idea or how it fits into larger ideas.

This assignment will be averaged with equal weight to the other assignments except the final, which will have a weight of 3.
