Required Course Materials

film_screening

Dram205 uses three types of course materials (click on the link for more info):

Screenings
Readings
Live Productions

Readings

These resources are available in online versions, either through streaming video (in the case of the screenings) or as websites, PDF articles, or ebooks (in the case of the readings).  Wherever possible (and in accordance with Canadian Copyright Laws), I have tried to provide free links to these resources.  These links can be accessed through the Dram205 Moodle site.

You will need to purchase some resources.  I estimate that the total cost for materials in the course will be between $50 and $80.  I have included some links below to where you can purchase and/or rent these resources.  They will not be ordered at the campus bookstore.  You will need to ordered Dram205 resources online.

(NOTE:  If you enrol in Dram205, you will also be automatically enrolled in the Dram205 Course Moodle site.  The course will be taught and administered through that Moodle site).

There will be a complete list of links for resources available on Moodle.  The list below is for your preliminary reference.  The schedule is subject to change.
