Welcome to Issues in Narrative and Documentary Film/Modern Film with Mr. Polish! Our class will meet every Friday from 9:15 – 11:15 am and your attendance there is required. Because we only meet one day a week, it is important that you maintain communication with me by e-mail if you are having any issues with me, school, or the work. My e-mail is email@example.com and I check it every day so expect me to get back to you no more than 24 hours after you have messaged me.

You will be graded on the depth and complexity of your proposal as well as how well you engage the class.
