Class Procedures and Reminders
Project Stack. I've gotten through the assignments turned in by 6PM on Saturday and will carry on today with the rest of the Saturday assignments and the ones turned in on Sunday morning. You can check the stack to make sure I received your assignment, and for Project Feedback this week, you will be reading Storybooks: I think you are going to be really impressed with them!
Wednesday Style. As always on Wednesday, I'm sharing a possible storytelling style to ponder: Oklahoma Style, where you set your story in Oklahoma. People have used this for some great stories in the past! You will also find more ideas at random on the Storytelling assignment page.
Epic Characters. You might also get some storytelling ideas from this wonderful Tom Gauld graphic: Characters for an Epic Tale.
Active v. Passive. As some of you already know, I am a fan of the active voice! For more writing humor, see the Writing Lab blog.
Spelling. Here's another word pair the spellchecker cannot help you with: ANGEL v. ANGLE.
Words of Wisdom: Today's saying is An untouched drum does not speak (a Liberian proverb). Find out more at the Proverb Lab. I say: let the drums speak!
Growth Mindset: Today's growth mindset cat is always growing: You can always learn more. And yes, you can find out more about growth mindset at the Growth Mindset blog.
Event on Campus: There will be a gathering at 7PM in the Scholars Room in the Union: Thriving at OU (details). Find out more about this and other events at the Campus Calendar online.
