Wednesday, November 7

Today is Wednesday of WEEK 12 of the class. If you have not turned in your Week 11 Storybook assignment yet, you may still do that for partial credit. Wednesday morning, until noon, is the grace period if you forgot to do any of the assignments that were due on Tuesday.

Storybook stack.
There are still quite a few assignments in the Storybook stack. If you turned in your assignment by 4PM on Sunday, you should have comments back from me now. Assignments turned in later on Sunday or on Monday or Tuesday are probably still in the stack. You can check the contents of the stack to make sure I have received your assignment.

Finishing the class early. (repeat announcement) When you finish up with the class I record a "FINAL GRADE" in the D2L Gradebook so you can be sure you are done. So, just let me know when you have completed the number of points you need: 410 for an A, 360 for a B, 320 for a C. It's entirely up to you what grade you want to finish with in the class. There is no need to apologize for stopping out with a grade of B or C (many people are taking this class just for Gen. Ed. credit, and I know it is often not a top priority). Whatever grade you decide to stop with is fine with me. The whole idea behind this points grading system is to let you know exactly where you stand and to allow you to choose to be finished with the class when you have the points you need.

Wednesday Events on Campus. On Wednesday afternoons from 1PM-3PM you can consult with Karen Antell, OU's head reference librarian, in the OU Writing Center location on the fourth floor of Bizzell Library (time/location/details). Find out more about this and other events at the Campus Calendar online.

Writing Tip Wednesday: In addition to its online submission service, the OU Writing Center is now offering computer-based writing sessions using Google+ Hangouts, Skype and WebEx. So, even if you cannot physically attend a Writing Center session, you can still work with a tutor one-on-one. I've used Hangouts, Skype and WebEx, and they are all user-friendly ways to interact with someone remotely, sharing a document and marking it up together while talking through it. You can find out more at the Writing Center website.
