18. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Dont come late. Just about every class he was late at least 10 minutes then had to set up the darkroom which made us late to work in the darkroom.
he should plan the course better, and be more strict about dues.
Give more time to work on projects. If not, don't be so critical on grading. Have more structure on assignments and more in class critics.
