Thursday, August 30

Today is Thursday of WEEK 2 of the class. For those of you in Myth-Folklore, Thursday morning, until noon, is the grace period if you forgot to do any of the assignments that were due on Wednesday. 

Week 2 Read and Respond assignment. The Week 2 blog commenting assignment is NOT available yet; it will be available starting on Friday! The blog commenting assignment is the only assignment you cannot complete early, and that is because people will still be adding posts to their blog today, Thursday. So, after midnight tonight, that is, at 12:01AM on FRIDAY, you can do that Read and Respond assignment; you have Friday, Saturday and Sunday to finish the blog responding since it is one of those Friday/weekend assignments.

Storybook Stack. I'm still making my way through the contents of the stack, which usually does take me all week - you can check the contents of the stack here to make sure I have received your assignment. Meanwhile, if you want Storybook comments from me this week, make sure you get your assignment turned in by Friday at 8AM. That way, I can be sure to get comments back to you before the weekend!

Friday, August 31: Final day to drop with refund. Friday will be the final day to drop a class and get a full refund. So, if you are finding out that this class does not fit into your schedule after all, or that the workload is too demanding, you can still drop the class and get a full refund. The Week 2 assignments should be giving you a sense of what the regular weekly assignments will be like for the rest of the semester, which means you now have a good basis on which to make your decision. If you have any questions about the class you'd like to ask before you make your decision, let me know!

Thursday Events on Campus. From 4pM-5PM in the Fred Jones Museum Auditorium, Prof. Victor Koshkin-Youritzin will present a fast-paced slide lecture in conjunction with the exhibit, Vernet to Villon: Nineteenth-Century French Master Drawings from the National Gallery of Art (time/location/details). Find out more about this and other events at the Campus Calendar online.
