You will be required to prepare a number of different assignments throughout the semester that you will have a lot of choice in completing, both in what types of projects and performances you choose to complete, and the manner in which (ie, with whom) you complete them.

Each of the assignments below are categorized by the type of assessment you may choose to participate in, as well as a value (in number of 's, out of five) correlating to the amount of time/effort they should require. You will be required to complete a certain number of Stars (yet to be determined) worth of assignments each term, along with designated class performances.

It is expected that recorded materials, where applicable, are shared on your Personal Wiki Page, as well as on the corresponding Assignment page below as a template for others.

If none of these assignments suits your taste, create a new assignment by linking to a new wiki page below, adding brief instructions, and then completing – and posting – your own work on your Personal Wiki Page, as well as the assignment page.
