Class Procedures and Reminders
Project Stack. Yesterday I read and replied to the projects turned in before 5PM on Sunday, and today I'll keep working my way through the Sunday assignments. While you are waiting on comments back from me about your Project assignment, you can check the stack to make sure I received your email.
Extra Credit. If there was another reading option that tempted you this week, you can do that for extra credit! Find out more in the extra credit section of this week's assignments.
The following items are for fun and exploration:
Class Twitter. From yesterday's Twitter @OnlineMythIndia, here is something from one of my favorite OU professors at Twitter, DrMCar, aka Meta G. Carstarphen: 11 books to read for National Novel Writing Month.
Storybook Archive. This project is from the Myth-Folklore class: Tokyo Underworld. Orimi works for the Urban Legend Department of the Tokyo police force, and she has a gruesome murder to solve. You'll have to pay close attention while she interrogates Teke-Teke, Tanuki, Kuchisake-Onna, Jinmenken, and The Professor if you want to find the murderer!
Story of the Day. Today's story is from Aesop's fables: Hercules and the Wagoner. This is a story about how the god (Hercules) helps those that help themselves.
Video: The video for today is one from Manish Vyas: Jaya Shiva Omkara. Find out more at Manish Vyas's website.
Growth Mindset: Today's growth mindset cat knows that learning is more than just about finals: Study to learn, not just to ace the test. You can find out more at the Growth Mindset blog.
Event on Campus: Yes, it's the third Wednesday, so there will be Waffles for Writers at the Writing Center this morning from 9AM-11AM (details). Find out more about this and other events at the Campus Calendar online.
