Thursday, May 7

Today is Thursday of WEEK 15 of the class. If you have not turned in your Week 14 Storybook assignment yet, you may still do that UNTIL NOON today for partial credit. For those of you in Myth-Folklore or World Lit, Thursday morning, until noon, is the grace period if you forgot to do any of the assignments that were due on Wednesday.

Storybook stack. As of the end of the work day on Wednesday, I had read and responded to all the Storybook assignments that had been turned in. If you turned something in on Wednesday evening, I'll be updating the stack again on Thursday morning. You can check the contents of the stack to make sure I have received your assignment.

Week 15: Last week of class! (repeat announcement) Yes, this is the last week of class and there are a few things that are different about this week because it is the last week of class. There are no "Early Bird" extra credit points this week because there are no Week 16 assignments for you to turn in early. Likewise, you need to get your Week 15 Storybook assignment turned in on time - which means, at the very latest, by Monday May 11 at noon. There is no partial credit available for late Week 15 Storybook assignments. So, for those of you who have been in the habit of turning in your Storybook late, keep that in mind this week! The best thing, of course, is to turn in the Week 15 Storybook assignment early, before noon on Friday this week, so you can get the points recorded in the Gradebook before the weekend, instead of waiting until the last minute on Monday. Final grades are determined by your total points: a minimum of 410 points an A, 360 points for a B, and 320 points for C (301 points to pass the class with a D).

Thursday: Last day to fill out course evaluations. Today, Thursday, is the last day to fill out course evaluations at the website. Please take a moment to do that now - and who knows, you might win an iPod - here's the announcement that you have probably seen when you log on to Desire2Learn:
