Program Introduction: Day 3 - Understanding The Rubric.

Our Program works in a two week (10-day section), in most cases, the 2-week section will start on a Monday and end on the next Friday. We will plan on lecturing for about 20 - 30 minutes on 6 of the days out of the 10. The first Monday will be all about introducing the projects. The Last Friday will be all about finishing & critiquing the projects. There will not be any real lectures on Thursday's because of Senior Seminar and Math. To simplify, you have about 14 - 16 in-class hours to complete the work. Homework will be done on your time.
