Class Procedures and Reminders
Project Stack. Yesterday, I read all the assignments turned in on Friday and most of the Saturday assignments. Today, I'll finish the Saturday assignments and move on to Sunday morning. As always, you can check the stack to make sure I received your assignment.
Project Feedback. I hope you will have fun with the Project Feedback assignment for this week: you'll be visiting the other class to choose a project to read there! For the rest of the semester, the free-choice option will work like that, so you can choose from either the class you are in, or you can visit the other class to see what grabs your attention there.
The following items are for fun and exploration:
Writing. It's ironic, isn't it? A Brief History of Writing Technology.
Growth. Wise words from Thor Heyerdahl: Borders? I have never seen one. But I have heard they exist in the minds of some people.
Spelling. Yet another word-pair that the spellchecker cannot help you with: MINER versus MINOR.
Words of Wisdom: Today's saying is Fall down seven times, get up eight (a Japanese proverb). Find out more at the Proverb Lab. It's a growth mindset proverb!
Growth Mindset: Today's growth mindset cat believes in exploring: Use your energy to explore. You can find out more at the Growth Mindset blog.
Event on Campus: At noon in the Gaylord Hall of Fame room, Mary Anna Evans will give a Brown Bag Book Reading from her latest Faye Longchamp nove, “Burials” (details). Find out more about this and other events at the Campus Calendar online.
