Class Procedures and Reminders
Project Stack. I managed to get through the projects that were turned in on Friday and Saturday morning. If you turned something in later on Saturday or on Sunday or Monday, it is probably still in the stack, and you can check the stack to make sure I received your assignment. I'll keep on working my way through the stack in the order received.
Week 9: Story post. (repeat announcement) Based on a fantastic idea that came in via the class feedback survey you did last week, I've made a BIG change to the Story post: you can now choose whether to write a story (as before), or you can choose to plan a story which you can then write the next week. Normally I don't make changes to assignments once the semester has started, but this idea sounded so good that I wanted to try it now. I hope you will like it!
The following items are for fun and exploration:
Story Generator. This story generator is inspired by Game of Thrones. And, yes, everybody dies... but there are lots of options on the way!
Punctuation. Because you can never have too much punctuation humor! Meanwhile, click here for the original Star Wars clip.
Spelling. And here's another word pair that renders the spellchecker powerless to help you: PEAK v. PEEK.
