  • ASSIGNMENT: All Institute students need to bring a copy of their Materials Reconsideration policy and photos of their teen space if they have one. If they don't have a teen space, they need to bring photos from several different angles of their library interior in general. These should be in an electronic version – either on a flash drive or they can put them on Dropbox and share the link with us ahead of time. They will be using all of this during 2 of 3 classes, as they will have some time to work on their policies and spaces during class time. They will also be working collaboratively with others in the class so these documents & policies need to be easily shared.
