Wednesday, May 4

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

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. If you turned in a Storybook assignment by 7PM on Tuesday, you should have comments back from me and points recorded in the Gradebook. If you turned something in later on Tuesday, it is probably still in the stack. As always, you can check the contents of the stack to make sure I have received your assignment. I do my best to get the Storybooks returned as quickly as possible during this final week so you can see where you stand with your total points.

May 4: International Firefighters Day. The day May 4 is celebrated each year as International Firefighters Day, and you can read more about this holiday at the International Firefighters Day website. May 4 has been celebrated in many European countries in honor of firefighters because it is the Day of Saint Florian, who is the patron saint of firefighters and also of chimney sweeps. Below you can see the emblem of the Oklahoma Fire Marshal, who is the chief firefighter of the state of Oklahoma:
