Tuesday, April 5

Today is Tuesday of WEEK 11 of the class, and I've re-arranged the Quiz area in Desire2Learn so Week 11 is on top. For those of you in Indian Epics, that means starting Buck's version of the Mahabharata, while it's more fairy tales in Myth-Folklore (this time from Denmark and Estonia), while it's French "urban legends" in World Literature. If you have not turned in your Week 10 Storybook assignment yet, you may still do that for partial credit.

Week 11 Internet: Visiting the other classes. For the Week 11 Internet assignment, you will see that the instructions are VERY different from previous weeks: you will be visiting the Storybooks in the other classes. So, please make sure you read the instructions for the Week 11 Internet assignment before you start reading the Storybooks for your Week 11 Internet assignment. There is also an extra credit option for Week 11 which you will find there in the instructions.

Storybook stack. As often on Tuesday, there is still a huge bunch of assignments in the Storybook stack. If you turned in a Storybook assignment on or before Saturday, you should have comments back from me and points recorded in the Gradebook. If you turned something in on Sunday or on Monday, it is probably still in the stack. You can check the contents of the stack to make sure I received your assignment. I will be reading and replying to the assignments in the order they were turned in; remember, if you want comments sooner rather than later, turn in your assignment on Saturday or Sunday morning, instead of waiting until Sunday evening or Monday morning.

Wednesday Event. Jack Randolph from the College of International Studies asked me to share this announcement: Social Entrepreneurship: The Role of Technology in the Developing World, Wednesday, April 6, 5PM-6:30PM, in the Sandy Bell Gallery at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art. The keynote speaker is Charles Kenny, author of Getting Better: Why Global Development is Succeeding – And How We Can Improve the World Even More.
