Class Procedures and Reminders
Project Stack. I've gotten through the assignments turned in by noon on Sunday, and I'll carry on with the Sunday assignments today. You can check the stack to make sure I received your assignment, and for Project Feedback this week, you will be reading Storybooks: I think you are going to be impressed!
Storytelling Style: Episodes. I know some of you are trying to figure out just how much story you can manage to tell in 1000 words, so I wanted to share this story from Taylor's Portfolio as a great example of how you can use episodes inside a story to make the most of your 1000 words. Just look at how much story Taylor is able to create with her short, focused episodes and her vivid word choices: Persephone Captures Hades. And for another take on Persephone, see the Storybook below!
OU Passwords. Today is the day: if you have not changed your OU password, you will need to go to accounts.ou.edu and change your password now! There are helpful details in this OU Daily article.
Writing. Wise words from Margaret Atwood: If I waited for perfection, I would never write a word.
Style. If you're looking for a storytelling style, try Yoda Style.
Words from India. Here's a Sanskrit word that you may have heard in English: CHAKRA, meaning "circle" or "wheel" (related to the word "cycle").
Featured Storybook. This project is from the Indian Epics class: The Girls of Spring. Imagine Sita's surprise when she sees a beautiful woman in the ashoka grove of Lanka, and you will be surprised, too: it is Persephone, a famous heroine of Greek mythology.
Growth Mindset: Today's growth mindset cat is all about learning: I do things I do not know how to do to learn how to do them. You can find out more at the Growth Mindset blog.
Event on Campus: The Oklahoma Undergraduate India Society is meeting at 7PM in Devon Energy Center with food, music, and games (details). Find out more about this and other events at the Campus Calendar online.
