Update: The Week 9 blog groups are ready to go! :-)
Class Procedures and Reminders
Project Stack. I'm now working my way through the projects turned in over the weekend, up to 7PM on Sunday. Today I'll finish the rest of the projects turned in on Sunday, and I'll try to start working on the assignments turned in during the week. You can check the project stack to make sure I received your email.
Fall Enrollment. Enrollment has started, and things are set up differently for these online classes next year: I no longer have any ability to do Ozone permissions, but there is a second section of Myth-Folklore. So, if you want to take one of my classes or if you know someone who does, the key is to get enrolled soon and, if the classes are full, to get on the Ozone waiting list right away since I no longer have magic Ozone powers like I used to. Details here: Online Course Enrollment.
The following items are for fun and exploration:
Stories. Here is the marvelous Tom Gauld again, this time with Mythical Scientific Creatures.
Words from India. You've probably heard the English word "pundit," which is a word from India: PANDIT.
Featured Storybook. This project is from the Myth-Folklore class: My Brothers Grimm: The Diary of the Only Grimm Sister. You've never heard of Charlotte Grimm, but without her help, the Brothers Grimm would never have survived to write their famous collection of fairy tales.
Words of Wisdom: Today's saying is A serpent, unless it devours a serpent, will not become a dragon (a Latin proverb). Find out more at the Proverb Lab. For those of you who are Latin students: Serpens, ni edat serpentem, draco non fiet.
