Equipment Usage:

Students are responsible for all equipment used.  Considering the cost of the equipment

It should not be used inappropriately, left unattended or not placed back in storage after using.  If anyone utilizes the equipment irresponsibly, they will not be allowed to use the equipment and will be assigned book work.


Technical Problems:

Problems with video and audio are a fact of life in any broadcast facility.  However, technical problems are often operator problems.  If you encounter a technical problem, notify the teacher IMMEDIATELY.  If the nature of the problem is due to a malfunction in equipment, a report should be filled out and an alternate approach will be taken to complete the assignment.


Homework Policy:

Homework is typically a completion of what needs to be finished for productions or a continuation of what has been taught in class.  Students, will at times, are required to bring in props/material for a project.  It will be due at the beginning of class.  (One letter grade will be deducted for each day late!)

Students will be required to turn in a monthly critique of a Videomaker article. 


Grading Procedures:

Your grade will be calculated using accumulated points.  Assignments (written or video related) will be graded using a critique sheet.  Students will of point value and assessment rubric prior to beginning any assignment.  You will also be evaluated by your peers when completing group assignments.  The grades will be taken in consideration when your final group grade is assigned. (Lack of cooperation or contribution to group assignments will probably result in low evaluations!)

The final grade in this course will be based on the average of tests, quizzes, written work, current events, class participation, and video assignments.  I do not curve and rarely assign extra credit.
