Thursday, September 13

Today is Thursday of WEEK 4 of the class. If you have not turned in your Week 3 Storybook assignment yet, you have UNTIL NOON TODAY to turn that in for partial credit. 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.

Storybook Stack. I'm still working my way through the large stack of Storybook assignments that people have turned in. If you turned in an assignment by 9AM on Monday, you should have comments back from me now. If you turned something in later on Monday, or on Tuesday or Wednesday, it is probably still in the stack, waiting for me to get to it. If you want to check and make sure your assignment is in the stack, you can see the contents of the stack here. I should be able to get through the remaining items in the stack by the end of the week. If you want comments back from me on a Storybook assignment, make sure you turn that in by Friday at 8AM.

Week 4 Internet: Coverpages. (repeat announcement) For your Internet assignment in Week 4, you will be publishing a coverpage for your Storybook. If you are using Google Sites, this means you will create a NEW SITE, and the homepage for that new site will be your Storybook coverpage. I hope you will enjoy creating a website for your Storybook! To see how the Storybooks for this semester are taking shape, here they are: Myth-Folklore Storybooks - Indian Epics Storybooks. I'll keep adding new Storybooks periodically to the list as people turn in their Week 4 Internet assignments.

Thursday Events on Campus. From 4:30-6:30 there will be a free recital by the Grupo Afro-CaribeƱo, part of the Masala World Music Workshop - come listen in the Pitman Recital Hall in the Catlett Center (time/location/details). Find out more about this and other events at the Campus Calendar online.

Thoughtful Thursday. Here's something to ponder for today (I especially like the guy dancing with his mop!); you can also view the video at YouTube. For those of you who are advertising majors, this is one of those ads that takes on a life of its own - because it is telling stories - above and beyond the product it is marketing (yeah, product placement: watch for the Coke near the end).
