Monday, May 2

Today is Monday. Week 14 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, including the Week 14 Storybook assignment (see note below).

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT WEEK 14 STORYBOOK: If you are turning in a Week 14 Storybook assignment, you need to do that on time; you cannot turn in a late Storybook assignment for Week 14. So, if you did not turn in the Week 14 Storybook assignment already over the weekend, you need to make sure you get the Week 14 Storybook assignment turned in during the grace period on Monday morning before noon.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT WEEK 15: Week 15 is different from other weeks, because it ENDS ON FRIDAY, MAY 6, AT NOON. So, if you will be doing some Week 15 assignments to finish up the class, please be aware of this special schedule: all the final Week 15 assignments are due by NOON ON FRIDAY at the latest. No late Week 15 Storybook assignment can be turned in for partial credit. All Week 15 assignments - including the Storybook assignment, Internet assignment, Blog Responding assignment, along with any extra credit you want to complete - must be completed by Friday, May 6, at noon.

Grading and points. As you can see in the Grading Information page, you need 410 to get an A, 360 points to get a B, and 320 points to get a C. When you get the number of points you need, you are done! If you can let me know when you are done with the class, I will record the letter grade for you in the Gradebook so that you can be sure you are finished with everything for the class.

Storybook stack. On Monday morning, I will update the contents of the stack, and I will start working my way through the stack based on the order in which things were turned in. Meanwhile, you can always check the contents of the stack to make sure I have received your assignment.

MONDAY Events on Campus. Starting today you can visit the Lightwell Gallery in the Fred Jones Art Center to see student Capstone projects on display (time/location/details). Find out more about this event and other events happening on Monday at the Campus Calendar online.

May 2 2011: Saint George. Because of a special occurrence having to do with the date of Easter this year, Saint George's Day is being celebrated on May 2 this year. Saint George is the patron saint of England and also of Germany and Greece, as well as the cities of Moscow and Istanbul. He is most famous for slaying the dragon, as shown below in this painting by Raphael. If you have any exams that have got you worried, just think about Saint George and go forth to slay that exam dragon!
