Wednesday, February 11

Today is Wednesday of WEEK 4 of the class. If you have not turned in your Week 3 Storybook assignment yet, you may still do that for partial credit. Wednesday morning, until noon, is the grace period if you forgot to do any of the assignments that were due on Tuesday.

Storybook Stack. I'm still working my way through the large stack of Storybook assignments that people have turned in. If you turned in an assignment on or before Sunday at 9PM, you should have comments back from me now. If you turned something in after 9PM on Sunday or on Monday or on Tuesday, it is probably still in the stack, waiting for me to get to it. If you want to check and make sure your assignment is in the stack, you can see the contents of the stack here. I reply to the assignments in the order that they are turned in, so if you want comments back earlier in the week, try to turn your Storybook in on Friday or Saturday instead of waiting until Sunday! The Storybook stack is very much a first-come first-served process. :-)

Week 4 Storybook: Introduction. If you did not read yesterday's announcements, please check those announcements for important information about the Week 4 Storybook assignment.

Coverpage samples. Carrying on from yesterday's announcements, here are some more examples of different kinds of coverpage layouts that people have used in the past. Today I've picked out some of the Storybooks that use a table layout so that you can have an image and text side by side, with the story links lifted to the right of the main image. Using a table is an easy way to arrange images and text side by side (if you set the table borders to zero, they will be invisible). Click on the link to see the actual coverpage:
