Final Class Announcements for Spring 2017

HAPPY FRIDAY! You have reached the end of Week 15... and the end of the class! Today at NOON is the deadline for any remaining work you want to turn in. Below you will find some important information about the end of the class:

Check your blogs for comments. People have been leaving comments on blog posts and blog comment walls up until the last day of class, so make sure you take a look at the comments on your blog to see if there is anything new.

Blogs and Websites. I hope very much that you will want to leave your Storybooks and Portfolios online; more information here: Storybook and Blog Options.

Course Evaluation. If you have not filled out the course evaluation yet at, I hope you will take a minute to do that — you might even win an iPad! You can still do that on Saturday or Sunday; the evaluation window closes at the end of the day on Sunday, May 7.

Class Announcements. If you are subscribed to the class announcements by email, you can decide if you want to stay on the list or unsubscribe (there is an unsubscribe link at the bottom of every email). Each semester the announcements is a mix of new and old items, so perhaps you would enjoy staying on the list, especially if you like finding out about free books. :-)

Grades. You can see your total points in Canvas, and based on that (410/A, 360/B, 320/C, 301/D), I'll be filing the final grade in Ozone on Friday afternoon.

And, last but not least, a big THANK YOU to everybody for all your great work in this class. I had a really wonderful time, and I hope you had fun too!

In particular, I want to thank you all for your growth mindset posts. I've been reading through those and collecting quotes to share with next year's students (here they are), and also to use in creating new growth mindset cats. I find it really inspiring to read everybody's thoughts, and I am sure next year's students will feel the same!

Finally, I thought you might enjoy this amazing video of Eric Whitacre's virtual choice, composed of thousands of voices singing together to tell a beautiful story: Fly to Paradise.  This video is in the playlist for all the videos from this semester's class announcements, so if you are looking for some more cool videos, check out the whole playlist: Spring 2017 Videos.

And if you want to revisit the past announcements, you can find links to all of them, week by week, below; I've included a favorite item from each week to share here. :-)
