Update: The Week 3 blog groups are ready now! :-)
Class Procedures and Reminders
Blog commenting. After the Story post grace period ends at noon, I'll start putting together the new random blog groups for the blog commenting. I'll get that done this afternoon and will update these announcements when the groups are ready to go — I should be able to get that ready by 5PM at the latest. I hope you enjoy this week's stories!
The following items are for fun and exploration:
Technology. Here's a great quote from one of my favorite authors, Arthur C. Clarke: Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
Spelling. You can never have too much English spelling humor.
Words from Mythology. When you are eating your morning cereal, remember the goddess CERES.
Featured Storybook. This project is from the Indian Epics class: The Mothers of the Epics. You will hear from the epic mothers Kaikeyi and Kunti in this Storybook, along with the famous Buddhist legend of Kisagotami, the grieving mother.
Words of Wisdom: Today's saying is A lion may be beholden to a mouse (an English proverb). Find out more at the Proverb Lab. This is another one of those proverbs inspired by an Aesop's fable.
Growth Mindset: Today's growth mindset cat is learning from mistakes: You might need to try another strategy. You can find out more at the Growth Mindset blog.
Event on Campus: Come celebrate the New Year at 6PM in the Jim Thorpe Multicultural Center (details). Find out more about this and other events at the Campus Calendar online.
