Thursday, March 7

Today is Thursday of WEEK 8 of the class. If you have not turned in your Week 7 Storybook assignment yet, you may still do that on Thursday morning 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. If you turned in a Week 7 assignment on Sunday, you should have comments back from me now; if you turned something in on Monday or later, it is probably still in the stack. If you want to check to make sure your assignment is in the stack, you can see the contents of the stack here. If you want comments back on a Storybook assignment before the weekend, make sure to get that assignment turned in by Friday at 8AM. If you have something turned in when I get to work on Friday morning, I can be sure to have comments back to you by the end of the day (possibly late in the day!) on Friday.

Spring Break. Some people have written to ask me about Spring Break, so I thought I would explain how that works. Next week, which is Week 9, you will have your usual Tuesday-Thursday assignments due just like always on March 12-13-14. Then, the Week 9 end-of-the-week assignments (Storybook, Internet, blog responding) will not be due until the weekend AFTER Spring Break, with the usual grace period on the Monday morning after Spring break, March 25. I'll have more to say about that next week; meanwhile, if you have any questions let me know!

Thursday Events on Campus. There will be another Star Trek screening and discussion at 6:30PM in Dale Hall 125, sponsored by the History of Science Association - with pizza, cookies and drinks provided (time/location/details). Find out more about this and other events at the Campus Calendar online. The episode that will be shown this time is Thine Own Self.
