Class Procedures and Reminders
Project Stack. I've gotten through all the assignments turned in on Sunday; if you turned something in on Monday or later, it is probably still in the stack, and you can check the stack to make sure I received your assignment. Remember: if you want comments by the weekend, turn in your assignment by noon today!
Storytelling Style. It's Thursday, so I'm sharing another possible storytelling style if you're looking for a new idea: Courtroom Trial — and you can find more Storytelling ideas if you want to explore more possibilities.
