Thursday, October 18

Today is Thursday of WEEK 9 of the class. If you have not turned in your Week 8 Storybook assignment yet, you may turn that in BEFORE NOON today 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've still got quite a few items left in the Storybook stack. If you turned in an assignment on Sunday, you should have comments back from me now. If you turned something in  on Monday, or on Tuesday or Wednesday, your assignment is probably still in the stack, waiting for me to get to it. If you want to check to make sure your assignment is in the stack, you can see the contents of the stack here.

Extra Credit. As you make your plan for finishing up the class, remember that extra credit points go straight into your total and can help you either to make up for missed work or to finish the class early. There are some extra credit assignments available each week (like the "Famous Last Words" post), and there are also some extra credit assignments you can do in advance (like the "Technology Tips," which you can do now for Weeks 9-15). Plus, you can get "Early Bird" extra credit points just for working ahead - no extra work, just managing your time so that you are working ahead. For those of you who did not see the Tuesday announcements, check there for information about the number of points remaining the semester so that you can plan out your strategy and finish up this class with the grade that you want.

Thursday Events on Campus. There will be a Bizzell Library Book Sale on the south side of the Library from 10AM - 4PM, with all remaining items discounted at the end of the day (time/location/details). Find out more about this and other events at the Campus Calendar online.

For something to think about this Thursday, here's a diagram to remind you that in addition to what is urgent, there are also things that are important - not urgent, but important, even very important. Don't forget about them!
