This is primarily a lecture-and-discussion class.
Lectures. Lectures will be illustrated, especially
those on art and architecture, and will prove, I hope, active learning
experiences, that is, engaging and thought-provoking intellectual safaris.
Given that, I encourage and promote your questions, but please hold
them until the end of or after class when I will give you the opportunity
to ask questions. Please do not interrupt lectures!
Discussion. After the lectures in each Part of the
class, we will hold a Class Discussion, in which groups called Pentads
will meet in class and create a Quality Thesis Topic (QTT) based on
the material covered in that Part of the class. These QTT's will will
serve as the foundation for Papers.
