Being prepared for class is crucial. You can accomplish this by doing any and all assigned readings or other forms of content consumption.
My courses focus on writing and other forms of content creation. That means you need to model your writing and content creation off of professional, industry-wide standards. As such, the applicable course texts and other supplemental materials model themselves toward answering the question of “how” you produce work for each specific media. The question “what should my work look like?” is answered through the course materials.
All readings and other assigned materials are presumed to have been consumed before class begins, unless otherwise noted. Failure to complete this work and engage in course discussions and activities will result in deductions from your grade.
In short, I need your brain in the class, not just the vehicle that transported it there!
