Friday, April 6 - Sunday, April 8

HAPPY WEEKEND! You have reached the end of Week 11! The Week 11 Read and Respond assignment (blog commenting) is available now, and the remaining Week 11 assignments are due on Friday or on Saturday or Sunday - please make sure you get started on those assignments soon. Also, Friday morning, until noon, is the grace period if you forgot to do any of the assignments that were due on Thursday.

Storybook Stack. I'm still working my way through the stack of Storybook assignments that people have turned in this week. If you want to check to make sure your assignment is in the stack, you can see the contents of the stack here. Everyone who turned in a Week 10 assignment by noon on Monday should have gotten comments back from me now. If you have a Storybook that you turned in by 8AM on Friday, I will do my best to get comments back to you by the end of day on Friday!

Mix and match points. (repeat announcement) Now that there are less than five weeks of the semester left (rest of Week 11, plus Weeks 12-13-14-15), you might want to plan to do some "mix and match" in terms of just which assignments you want to complete this semester to get the points you need for the grade you want to get. So, based on the assignments you enjoy most/least in the class, you can certainly skip some assignments, provided that you end up with the points you need at the end. My only recommendation is that you do this cautiously. You don't want to skip so many assignments that you end up not getting the points you need for your desired grade.

Friday Events on Campus. At 5PM there will be a free public reception for the Foundations Exhibition in the Lightwell Gallery of the Art Center (time/location/details). Find out more about this and other events at the Campus Calendar online.

April 6 2012: Hanuman Jayanti. Friday, April 6, is the Hindu festival of Hanuman Jayanti, which commemorates the birth of the monkey god Hanuman. You can find out more about Hanuman at Wikipedia - and, of course, everyone in Indian Epics is well acquainted with Hanuman by now! The image below is a greeting card for Hanuman Jayanti, showing Hanuman as he carries the Medicine Hill: Happy Hanuman's Birthday!
