Wednesday, May 1

Today is Wednesday of WEEK 15 of the class. Wednesday morning, until noon, is the grace period if you forgot to do any of the assignments that were due on Tuesday.

Storybook stack. As of 7PM on Tuesday, I had gotten caught up with all the Storybooks that had been turned in, so I hope that will give everyone working on the Week 15 Storybook assignment time to get that done by Friday at noon. As always, you can check the contents of the stack to make sure I have received your assignment!

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT WEEK 15. (repeat announcement) Week 15 is different from other weeks, because it ENDS ON FRIDAY, MAY 3, AT NOON. So, if you will be doing some Week 15 assignments to finish up the class, please be aware of this special schedule: all the final Week 15 assignments - including the Storybook assignment, Internet assignment, Blog Responding assignment, along with any extra credit you want to complete - must be completed by Friday, May 3, at noon. No late Week 15 Storybook assignment can be turned in for partial credit, and there is no weekend or Monday morning grace period because of finals next week.

Grading and points. (repeat announcement) As you now know from previous announcements, you need 410 points to get an A, 360 points to get a B, and 320 points to get a C. When you get the number of points you need, you are done! If you can let me know when you are done with the class, I will record the letter grade for you in the Gradebook so that you can be sure you are finished with everything for the class.

Wednesday Events on Campus. Celebrate "Dead Week Breakfast" from 8PM-10PM on Wednesday evening in the Union food court - free breakfast food to reduce finals stress (time-location-details). Find out more about this and other events at the Campus Calendar online.

May 1: May Day. May Day is a traditional spring holiday in many different countries. One of the many different May Day celebrations is the famous "May Pole" (read more at Wikipedia) - and below you can see students at Bryn Mawr College celebrating the holiday with May Poles!
