This part lays out the principles, rules, guidelines, and workflow (procedure) of the course’s interpretive method. It is designed to work with in-class presented material, not stand on its own.

The principles, rules, guidelines and advice are first given as quick reference lists.

Following these simple lists is a brief chapter that introduces the overall principles of the rules, guidelines and advice. These principles are: practicability, shareability, credibility, discovery & insight, accuracy, equality, diversity, and liveliness.

Course rules are described. Rules are policies that every student must follow.

Then, various guidelines and advice are stated. Some guidelines are achievable, others are aspirational. All advice is the result of watching the success and failures of student analysis done over the years in this course.
