Wednesday, September 14

Today is Wednesday of WEEK 4 of the class. If you have not turned in your Week 3 Storybook assignment yet, you may still do that for partial credit. Wednesday morning, until noon, is the grace period if you forgot to do any of the assignments that were due on Tuesday.

Storybook comments. Please make sure you look for my comments in the emails I send back to you; in addition to comments at the top of the email, there are comments marked with ==> in the body of the email. Please read through all the comments in the email and if you have any questions, ask! You should save these emails, too, since you will be working on the Storybook all semester and you might need to look back at a past email to get some information to help you with a later Storybook assignment.

Storybook Stack. I'm still working my way through the large stack of Storybook assignments that people have turned in. If you turned in an assignment on or before Sunday at 10PM, you should have comments back from me now. If you turned something in after 10PM on Sunday or on Monday or on Tuesday, it is probably still in the stack, waiting for me to get to it. If you want to check and make sure your assignment is in the stack, you can see the contents of the stack here. I reply to the assignments in the order that they are turned in, so if you want comments back earlier, try to turn your Storybook in before Sunday; each time you turn in a Storybook assignment, you will need to wait on comments back from me before you go on to the next Storybook assignment.

Week 4 Internet: Coverpages. (repeat announcement) For your Internet assignment this week, you will be publishing a Coverpage for your Storybook. If you are using Google Sites, this means you will create a NEW SITE, and the homepage for that new site will be your Coverpage. I hope you will enjoy creating a website for your Storybook! To get some ideas, you can visit these previous Storybooks that were created with GoogleSites last year in Myth-Folklore and in Indian Epics, and you can also take a look at this semester's new projects: Myth-Folklore Storybooks and Indian Epics Storybooks.

Wednesday Events on Campus. Dr. Zoe Sherinian will be presenting her documentary film This Is A Music: Reclaiming An Untouchable Drum, which is about a group of outcaste (untouchable) drummers from rural India. See the film at 5PM on Wednesday in Pitman Recital Hall, Catlett Music Center (time/location/details). Below is a trailer for the movie from YouTube!
