Friday, Sept. 28 - Sunday, Sept. 30

HAPPY WEEKEND! You have reached the end of Week 6! The Week 6 Read and Respond assignment (blog commenting) is available now, and so is the Week 6 Internet assignment (Storybook commenting), along with the remaining Week 6 assignments that are due on Friday or on Saturday or Sunday - please make sure you get started on those assignments soon. Friday morning, until noon, is the grace period if you forgot to do any of the assignments that were due on Thursday.

Blog Responding. For the Responding assignment, you should be looking for the Week 6 essay and story - which means you may need to scroll down, because some people are working ahead. So, if you do not find somebody's Week 6 blog posts at the top of their blog, just scroll on down until you find what you are looking for. For information about what to do if someone does not have the posts you are looking for, see the instructions at the assignment. There is also an extra credit responding option this week again; you will find details about that in the regular responding assignment.

Storybook Stack. I still have some items in the stack as of Friday morning. My goal is always to get every Storybook returned before the weekend that is turned in to me before 8AM on Friday. For those of you who would like to get comments back sooner rather than later on your Storybook assignment, turn your work in on Friday or on Saturday - don't wait until Sunday! If you wait and turn your assignment in on Sunday or later, you will have to wait longer to get comments back.

Commenting on Storybooks. (repeat announcement) Every week from now through Week 12 of the semester, you will be commenting on people's writing at their Storybooks. During these weeks as you comment on people's Storybooks, please provide as much detailed, specific feedback as possible! It's nice to get compliments, but it is also really good to get feedback about what things could be improved, especially now, early in the semester. So, do not hesitate to say when something is confusing, or when something seems repetitious, or if you think something is important is missing. Every semester, students tell me that they wish they had received more detailed feedback on their Storybooks, rather than just generic compliments - find out more about Good Feedback: Details, Details, Details!

Friday/Weekend Events on Campus. University Theater presents Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, showing in the Weitzenhoffer Theater on Elm Avenue at 8PM on Friday and Saturday, with a matinee on Sunday. It's a modernized version, set in the year 2012; you can read more about the production in this article in the Daily (and here are more time/location/details). Find out more about this and other events at the Campus Calendar online.
