Class Procedures and Reminders
Beginning of the end... I am pleased to announce that Shruti (in Myth-Folklore) is done with the class already, so that's a big congratulations to her: well done, Shruti!!! There are some other people who are very close to finishing up, and for those of you would like to finish early, the key is doing some extra credit each week. It really does add up, and if you start now you can easily finish well ahead of Week 15.
Project Stack. I managed to get through the projects that were turned in over the weekend before Spring Break, and today I'll start in on the projects that were turned in last Monday and later during the Spring Break week. I'll keep on working my way through the stack in the order received, and if all goes well I should be able to get through the stack by the end of the day on Friday as usual. Meanwhile, you can check the stack to make sure I received your assignment.
The following items are for fun and exploration:
Reading. I would definitely vote to add an eighth day to the week just for reading. :-)
Writing. There are so many reasons why people write, and I found this nice graphic at the #WhyIWrite Twitter hashtag:
