Class Procedures and Reminders
Countdown. If you look in the sidebar of this blog, you'll see a widget I created for the end of the semester now that we have just five weeks of the semester left (plus Thanksgiving Break). I hope that this might inspire you to work ahead and finish up the class early before the big end-of-semester crunch in your other classes that have final projects, final exams, etc.
Project Stack. You can check the stack to make sure I received your assignment, and if you want comments back earlier rather than later, try to turn in your project this afternoon instead of waiting for the evening. On Monday I'll start working through the projects in the order received. The sooner you can get that turned in, the sooner you'll get comments back. :-)
Message from Megan. (repeat announcement) Megan from Indian Epics is working on a research project in the Psychology department on memory, and she would really like to have people help test out this survey: "The purpose of this research is to assess your memory for basic stimuli like words or faces, examine your decision making processes, and assess your cognitive processing." Here is a link to the Survey.
The following items are for fun and exploration:
Writing. Around this time of the semester, watch out for writer's block!
Reading. Have you tried working in BIzzell? Libraries are so inspiring! Bizzell is open from noon until 2AM today.
Spelling. This one is in honor of the OU Sower: SEW versus SOW.
Growth Mindset: Today's growth mindset cat is curious, as all learners should be: Curiosity is the will to explore. You can find out more at the Growth Mindset blog.
Event on Campus: The 2016 OU Day of the Dead Celebration will start at 1PM at Lloyd Noble Center, with festivities until 8PM; there will be Aztec fire dancers and Latin Grammy-nominated Banda Carnaval (details).
