Thursday, September 20

Today is Thursday of WEEK 5 of the class. If you have not turned in your Week 4 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.

GoogleSites Tips. For the Week 5 Storybook assignment, you will be publishing your Introduction at your Storybook website. Here are some tips you might want to look at as you continue to work on the layout and design of your site: design templates - font sizes and other design elements - image size and placement - site title and page titles - site navigation. Also, please review the information on adding a new page - ESPECIALLY the part in bold red about making your new page a "top level" page; if you don't do that, you'll end up with a subpage which might give you all kinds of grief in the future!

Storybook Stack. I'm still working my way through the very large stack of Storybook assignments that people have turned in. If you turned in an assignment on Sunday, you should have comments back from me now. If you turned something in on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday, it is probably still in the stack, waiting for me to get to it - you can check to make sure I have your assignment by looking at the contents of the stack here. I will do my best to respond to everything in stack before the weekend, but this week is the busiest of the whole semester for me (the Introduction is the hardest part of the Storybook to write), which can mean I might end up doing schoolwork on Saturday - we'll see how it works out this semester! If you turned something in on time, I promise to get it back before the weekend; I might not get to the late assignments until Saturday.

Thursday Events on Campus. Sound Lounge - Remember the 90s: from 8PM-10PM in the Union's Beaird Lounge you can listen to covers of favorite 90s hits by The Fuzz and Kyra Wharton (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:
