Thursday, May 5

Today is Thursday of WEEK 15 of the class. Thursday morning, until noon, is the grace period if you forgot to do any of the assignments that were due on Wednesday.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT WEEK 15. (repeat announcement) 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. (repeat announcement) 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. As of Wednesday at 5 PM, I had read and replied to all the Storybook assignments that were in the stack. As always, you can check the contents of the stack to make sure I have received your assignment; I'll be updating the stack again first thing on Thursday morning. If you want points recorded in the Gradebook before Friday, get your assignment turned by 5PM on Thursday and I will make sure to read and respond to it on Thursday evening so you will know where you stand as you get close to that Friday noon deadline for finishing the class.

THURSDAY Events on Campus. On Thursday evening, you can get a FREE "brinner" (breakfast for dinner) in the Union Food Court from 8PM to 10PM as part of the Union's Dead Week De-Stress (time/location/details). Find out more about this event and other events happening on Thursday at the Campus Calendar online.

Evaluate.. and win an iPad. Today, Thursday, is the last day to complete the course evaluations available at The evaluation will be available until 11:59PM on Thursday night. Plus, they are giving away iPads to some lucky students drawn at random from the people who completed the course evaluations! So, if you have not completed the evaluations for your classes, please take a few minutes to do that today. Your feedback is really valuable to me... and it might turn out to be valuable to you, too! :-)
