Class Procedures and Reminders
Week 6 Project. By now everybody is on their own schedule (doing Storybook or Portfolio, adding or revising, etc.), and if you have not turned in your Week 6 Project assignment yet, check the email I sent you on Friday to see what you have due today, and if you have any questions about that, just let me know. After you turn in your assignment (sending me the email with the checklist), you can look at the stack to make sure I received your email.
The following items are for fun and exploration:
Editing. As you may have guessed by now, I am a fan of short-and-sweet writing strategies, a.k.a. Ruthless Editing.
Fairy Tales. Another genius cartoon from Tom Gauld: The Three Little Scientists and the Big Bad Wolf.
Spelling. Alas, the spellchecker cannot help you with this one: IDLE v. IDOL.
Words of Wisdom: Today's saying is As the wind, so the sail (a French proverb). Find out more at the Proverb Lab. In other words: you must adapt to the circumstances in which you find yourself!
Growth Mindset: I did not make this cat; it's one that I found online, and I thought it was perfect for the Growth Mindset collection: If you only focus on the problem, you might miss the easy solution.
Event on Campus: There will be a matinee showing of "Let the Right One In" at 3PM in the Weitzenhoffer Theatre: "The only truly terrifying vampire story written in the last 120 years, Let the Right One In ushers Bram Stoker’s Victorian nightmare into the 21st century" (details). Find out more about this and other events at the Campus Calendar online.
