Class Procedures and Reminders
Wednesday Style. If you are pondering a style to use for this week, you might consider "Dear Abby" (who even has her own article at Wikipedia) or some other kind of advice-type column. For ideas about how this can work, just take a look at McKenzie's Parvati's Counseling Service Storybook for Indian Epics, where the goddess Parvati is the one giving the advice, as in this back-and-forth she has with the epic heroine Damayanti.
Project Stack. Yesterday, I managed to get through the projects turned in by 2PM Sunday. I'll be carrying on with the Sunday assignments today, and you can check the stack to make sure I received your assignment.
Michaela's Survey. (repeat announcement) Here is another Capstone survey; this one comes from Michaela in Indian Epics, and it is for past study abroad participants (Michaela is studying the relationship between language study and study abroad satisfaction): Study Abroad Survey.
The following items are for fun and exploration:
Stories. You might also get some storytelling ideas from John Atkinson's Movie Plot Generator.
Word from Mythology. Today's word comes from the Greek epic hero Odysseus: ODYSSEY.
Featured Storybook. This project is from the Indian Epics class: Elephants of Indian Epics. Singh's two sons Deepak and Tupac are in need of some life lessons, and they are even blessed with a dream vision of Ganesha to help focus their attention on the elephant stories that their father will tell them.
Growth Mindset: Today's growth mindset cat is clearly going to do the Story Planning post option: First, I make a plan. You can find out more at the Growth Mindset blog.
Event on Campus: The world premiere of Laughter Without Borders: Swedish Clowns in Greece Helping Syrian Refugee Children will take place at 7PM in Meacham (details). Find out more about this and other events at the Campus Calendar online.
