Class Procedures and Reminders
Project Stack. Yesterday, I finished replying to all the assignments turned in on Sunday. Today I'll finish all the Week 8 assignments that people turned in on Monday, along with as much of the rest of the stack as I can. Meanwhile, you can check the stack to make sure I received your assignment.
Diigo links. I had a great back-and-forth with the Diigo developers about the new interface (see yesterday's announcements), and they've fixed some of the problems, but some links are still not working well, especially in Chrome. If you are having trouble with any Diigo links for browsing the class readings, just let me know and I'll get you a corrected link!
The following items are for fun and exploration:
Pause. The weekend is a great time to find your Pause Button.
Names. Oklahoma, for example, is a Choctaw name. Find out more at the State Names Map.
Words from Mythology. Yes, the "atlas" that is a book of maps really is connected to the Greek god: ATLAS.
Featured Storybook. This project is from the Myth-Folklore class: Nature Tales of the Cherokee. Victoria is a little girl who wants to hear stories about princesses. Her grandmother, though, decides to tell her the stories of her people, the Cherokee, and instead of being princess stories, these are stories about the world of nature.
Growth Mindset: Today's growth mindset cat has made some mistakes, which means it's time to learn from those mistakes ...and then move on. You can find out more at the Growth Mindset blog.
Event on Campus: There are free showings of Ghostbusters at 6PM, 9PM and midnight in Meacham (details). Find out more about this and other events at the Campus Calendar online.
