Wednesday, March 14

Today is Wednesday of WEEK 9 of the class. If you have not turned in your Week 8 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 Stack. There are still MANY Storybook assignments in the stack and I am making my way through them in the order that they were turned in. If you turned something in before 10PM on Sunday, you should have comments back from me already. If you turned something in later on Sunday or on Monday or Tuesday, it is probably still in the stack. If you want to check and make sure your assignment is in the stack, you can see the contents of the stack here. While you are waiting on comments back from me, you can keep on adding stories to your Storybook (that is a great thing to do, in fact!) - but please only turn in one Storybook assignment at a time. So, if you have something in the stack now, please don't turn in another assignment until I get that one back to you.

Spring Break information. If you did not read the Monday announcements, make sure you do that now; there is important information there about Spring Break and the schedule for this class.

Grading. For those of you who did not see the Tuesday announcements, check there for information about the number of points remaining the semester so that you can plan out your strategy finishing up this class with the grade that you want.

Wednesday Events on Campus. Bill Barker, who is a "Thomas Jefferson Interpreter" will be giving a performance as Jefferson in Meacham Auditorium from 5:30-7:30PM on Wednesday (time/location/details). Find out more about this and other events at the Campus Calendar online. I've seen Barker perform as Jefferson at Colonial Williamsburg and he really is remarkable! I would urge anyone with free time to attend this event if you can. Here is a picture of Barker in his Jefferson costume - and believe me: the best part is when he takes questions from the audience, so think of some good questions you want to ask Jefferson before you attend!
