Thursday, May 3

Today is Thursday of WEEK 15 of the class. Thursday morning, until noon, is the grace period if you forgot to do any of the assignments that were due on Wednesday. This is the LAST FULL DAY of class!

Storybook stack. If you turned in a Storybook assignment by Wednesday at 9PM, you should have comments back from me and points recorded in the Gradebook. If you turned something in later than that, it may still in the stack. As always, you can check the contents of the stack to make sure I have received your assignment!

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT WEEK 15. (repeat announcement) Week 15 is different from other weeks, because it ends TOMORROW, FRIDAY, MAY 4, AT NOON. So, if you will be doing some Week 15 assignments to finish up the class, please be aware of this special schedule: all Week 15 assignments - including the Storybook assignment, Internet assignment, Blog Responding assignment, along with any extra credit you want to complete - must be completed by Friday, May 4, at noon.

Grading and points. (repeat announcement) As you now know from previous announcements, you need 410 points to get an A, 360 points to get a B, and 320 points to get a C. When you get the number of points you need, you are done! If you can let me know when you are done with the class, I will record the letter grade for you in the Gradebook so that you can be sure you are finished with everything for the class.

Thursday Events on Campus. Wind down from end-of-semester stress at the Juggling Club - no previous experience required! They meet in Huston Huffman Room 140, 8PM-10PM (time/location/details). Find out more about this and other events at the Campus Calendar online.
