Watch TV. (What an assignment!) No, I mean really watch it. Note how video and audio editing is used to create a sense of pace, progress, and form, and note the relationships between music and dialog. Especially watch the commercials. Make some concise observations about the types of 30-second formal structures used, and about the pacing and ordering of audio and video components of the commercials. Take notes (literally), formulate concepts or theories about what you've observed, and be prepared to discuss your discoveries in class.
