Class Procedures and Reminders
Project Feedback. For Week 10, it's feedback on the Storybooks, and the groups are ready to go. You will find lots of stories at the Storybooks now for your reading pleasure, and I hope you will get some good ideas for your own writing as you explore what people are doing with their projects.
Project Stack. Yesterday, I managed to read all the assignments turned in on Saturday, and I'll be starting on the Sunday assignments today. You can check the stack to make sure I received your assignment.
The following items are for fun and exploration:
Punctuation. This is like "Let's eat Grandma," but this time punctuation is Saving Your Love Life.
Words from Mythology. The Germanic god of war, Tiw, gave his name to this day, Tiw's Day: TUESDAY.
Featured Storybook. This project is from the Myth-Folklore class: The Witches Are Out. Here's Callie's babysitting flyer: Looking for someone to watch the brats while you escape for a few hours? Call me, Caille Ahearn, for all of your babysitting needs. Cost: $10 per kid per hour. Mark and Katherine Waterson, please do not respond to this. Your kids SUCK!! Everyone else, feel free to call me because I really need concert money, yo!!!!
