Class Procedures and Reminders
Project Stack. The sooner you can turn in your project, the sooner you'll get comments back from me. I'll update the stack periodically today so you can check the stack to be sure that I've received your email.
Finishing up the class. (repeat announcement) After today, there are just five more weeks of school: Weeks 11-12-13-14-15. Week 11 starts on Monday, and it's a good idea to make a plan now for finishing up the class, choosing what assignments you want to work on and deciding on how many stories you want to include in your Portfolio or Storybook, etc. You can use this Weekly Chart to track your progress, especially if you would like to have a total Dead Week in this class before finals. If you have questions about any of that, let me know!
The following items are for fun and exploration:
Life. It's a "Spring Cleaning" cartoon from the wonderful Grant Snider.
Time. Procrastination is... intergalactic.
Words from India. For thousands of years before it was perverted by Hitler and the Nazi Party, the SWASTIKA was a symbol of good luck in India.
Featured Storybook. This project is from the Myth-Folklore class (and it's by Jenna, who is in Indian Epics this semester): Not to Touch the Earth. The time has come for Rye to visit the Oracle. As he learns of his future, he may remind you already of a great hero from the past. And then... it's time to face the monster, the one who comes at night.
Words of Wisdom: Today's saying is The one who is not strong enough to lift the stone must roll it (an Estonian proverb). Find out more at the Proverb Lab. The image is one of the famous "dwarves of Wrocław."
