Monday, December 1

Today is Monday, and I hope everybody had a great Thanksgiving break! Week 13 of the class is now over. Monday morning, until noon, is the grace period if you forgot to do any of the assignments that were due on Friday/Saturday/Sunday. Week 14 will begin tomorrow - and those assignments are available now if you want to get started. The Week 15 assignments are also available now, too!

Storybook stack. As you can imagine, the Storybook stack is HUGE because of all the people who took advantage of the week-long break in order to work ahead on their Storybook, in addition to the Week 13 assignment that was due. I've updated the contents of the stack, and I will begin working my way through the stack based on the order in which things were turned in - but it is definitely going to take me a while to work through the stack, so please be patient! You can check the contents of the stack to make sure I have received your assignment.

Week 14 Internet assignment. For the Week 14 Internet assignment, you'll be doing an online course evaluation of this class, just as you do course evaluations using the "bubble forms" in your regular classroom classes. The online evaluation will take place at the website, but the Spring evaluations are not available yet. I'll be sure to let you know as soon as the evaluation is available and you should also be receiving an email directly from the College of Arts & Sciences with specific information about how to log on and complete the evaluation form.

December: Latin Christmas Carols. As one of my Latin hobbies, I collect Christmas carols and holiday songs in Latin, and I've got a special blog - - where you can find a different Latin Christmas carol or holiday song for each day of the month of December... beginning with Rudolphus on December 1 (with no less than FIVE, count 'em, FIVE different versions of Rudolphus in Latin!). So, if you have taken Latin or are taking Latin now, you might want to check out the Gaudium-Mundo blog for a Classical Christmas! If you are interested in Rudolph in particular, here's the page about Rudolphus rubrinasus.
