Wednesday, March 7

Today is Wednesday of WEEK 8 of the class. If you have not turned in your Week 7 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 quite a few 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 by 7PM 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.

Week 8 Internet assignment. (repeat announcement) The Week 8 Internet assignment is now available. Once again, you will be commenting on the Storybooks that already have at least one STORY available for you to read. Most of the Storybooks do now have at least one story, since many folks who did not publish a story in Week 6 did publish a story for Week 7. Check the assignment instructions for details about how to find your Storybooks to look at for this week!

Wednesday Events on Campus. From 12:30PM to 1:30PM there will be a bake sale AND print sale in the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art; the Print Club is raising money to fun their trip to Southern Graphics Conference: baked goods $1, prints starting at $5 (time/location/details). Find out more about this and other events at the Campus Calendar online.

March 7: World Read Aloud Day. You can find out more about the "World Read Aloud Day" event at the website. I am such a huge fan of reading aloud... even if you just read aloud to yourself. Even better if you read aloud together with someone else! So, grab one of your favorite books and read a random a paragraph out loud - then think about just what the writer has done to make the magic of words happen. Reading aloud is definitely part of the magic!
