Class Procedures and Reminders
Project Stack. I don't update the Project stack as often on the weekends, but I'll update it at least once or twice today. If you want comments back on your assignment sooner rather than later, turn in your work earlier on Sunday rather than waiting until later. The sooner you are able to turn that in, the sooner you'll get comments back!
Week 8 Assignments. (repeat announcement) Because Week 8 is a Review Week, there is no new reading in Week 8. Instead, there are just some review activities, and I hope you will have fun with this change of pace for the middle of the semester!
The following items are for fun and exploration:
Punctuation. Let's eat, Grandma! Proof that punctuation saves lives.
Writing. Click here for the full-sized view: How Does the Act of Writing Affect Your Brain?
Words from Mythology. From the name of the Greek nymph Syrinx, we get the English word SYRINGE.
Featured Storybook. This project is from the Myth-Folklore class: Young Jamie and the Tasks of Titania. The children of the village are disappearing, and brave Jamie decides that he will rescue them, even if it means entering into a terrifying bargain with Titania, queen of the faeries.
