Wednesday, April 4

Today is Wednesday of WEEK 11 of the class. If you have not turned in your Week 10 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.

Week 11 Internet: Visiting the other classes. (repeat announcement) This week, you will be visiting the Storybooks in the other class, along with an extra credit option similar to last week's extra credit option. We are getting near the end of the semester, and I hope the extra credit can be a way for you to enjoy more of the Storybooks before we run out of time!

Grades. If you did not read the information about finishing up the class and final grades in the Monday announcements, please take a minute to do that now. Also, I am pleased to announce that someone finished the class on Tuesday evening, reaching 410 points for an A. Very exciting! Even if you have not been working ahead up until now, you can still manage to finish early by getting ahead and doing the extra credit assignments. As soon as you reach the points you need for your final grade, just let me know and I'll mark the grade for you in the D2L Gradebook.

Storybook Stack. There are still a lot of 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 6PM 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.

Wednesday Events on Campus. There will be a Harp Studio Recital in Pitman Recital Hall at 8PM (time/location/details). Find out more about this and other events at the Campus Calendar online.

Summer Course: Italian Online.OU's online Italian instructor, Elizabeth Ilawan (she actually took Mythology-Folklore about 10 years ago, and did a great project on Italian fairy tales) sent me this poster about the Italian online courses that she will be teaching this summer. Italian is a language I speak pretty well - so, I can assure you: it is easy to learn; plus, it is so much fun! If you are looking for a summer language course online, maybe Italian is a language you would enjoy!
