Class Procedures and Reminders
Week 6 Project Feedback. I've set up the Project Feedback groups for Week 6, and this time you will be looking at Storybook Introductions. I hope you will have learning about people's projects and looking at the websites they are making!
Project Stack. The stack is especially gigantic right now since I spent Monday afternoon getting caught up on emails and setting up the Feedback groups, but today I'll be working on reading and replying to the Portfolios and Storybooks, starting with assignments turned in last week, and then the assignments turned in on Saturday. As always, you can check the stack to make sure I received your assignment.
The following items are for fun and exploration:
Reading. Some words of advice from the wonderful cartoonist Grant Snider: Reading is Dangerous.
Lake Monsters. And speaking of danger, watch out for the giant octopus in Lake Thunderbird. It's just one of the Lake Monsters of America.
GrammarCatz. I'm guessing some of you may have midterms this week, so... you can get some help from one of the GrammarCatz.
Words of Wisdom: Today's saying is The one who is not strong enough to lift the stone must roll it (an Estonian proverb). Find out more at the Proverb Lab. The photo shows one of the stone dwarves of Wrocław, Poland.
Growth Mindset: Today's growth mindset cat knows that learning takes more than just doing the minimum: Effort ignites ability and turns it into accomplishment. You can find out more at the Growth Mindset blog.
Event on Campus: There will be a One Sooner training session in the Union Sooner Room, 6PM-8PM: It only takes one Sooner to speak out to end gender-based violence on our campus (details). Find out more about this and other events at the Campus Calendar online.

You can find out more in this Wikipedia article, and below you can see a photo of the actual Rosetta Stone in the British Museum:
