Tuesday, January 24

Today is Tuesday of WEEK 2 of the class. I've moved the Week 2 Quizzes and Declarations to the TOP of the Desire2Learn area now. This week in Indian Epics you are starting Narayan's Ramayana, while it's Ancient Near East week in Myth-Folklore - you will be choosing EITHER Gilagmesh OR Egypt. I really hope you will enjoy the readings!

Proofreading Assignments. I finished returning all the proofreading assignments on Monday and also sent out a general email about the results. If you have any questions about that or did not receive the email for some reason, let me know!

Storybook Stack. A very large number of Storybook assignments came in over the weekend and on Monday, and I've been reading through those in the order that they came in. If you turned in an assignment before 11PM on Saturday, you should have comments back from me, with points recorded for you in the Gradebook (check and make sure!). If you turned something in later on Saturday or Sunday or on Monday, 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.

Storybook Comments via email. When I send back Storybook comments to you via email, you will see that my comments are inserted into your email and marked with ==> so you can find them easily. PLEASE READ THESE COMMENTS. The comments for each week should help you when you do your assignment for the next week, and possibly in future weeks, too, so make sure you save the emails that I send back to you about your Storybook assignment. That way, you can consult them later as needed. If you have any questions about the comments or if something is not clear, let me know!

Tuesday Events on Campus. Jeff Beekman will lead a walking tour of artworks by OU students in the Nancy Johnston Records Gallery from 1:30PM - 2:30PM (time/location/details). Find out more about this event and other events at the Campus Calendar online.

WLT Book Club. The World Literature Today Book Club will have its first Spring meeting this Thursday, January 26, at noon in the WLT conference room, 105 Monnet Hall. Lunch will be provided. The book under discussion will be the graphic novel Daytripper by Brazilian twins Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá. There are still a couple of books left in the WLT office in Monnet Hall, so go pick up a copy of the book while they are available. For more information contact Katlin Seagraves (Indian Epics) or Marla Johnson in the WLT office. World Literature Today is one of the most amazing projects you will find at OU - definitely check them out if you are not already familiar with all that they do.
