Week 14 Assignments


The end of the semester is almost here! I hope you can finish the class this week so that you can have a Dead Week during Week 15. When you reach the points you need for your desired grade, you are done: that's 410 for an A, 360 for a B, and 320 for a C. Let me know if you have any questions about how that works! If you have been keeping up with the work so far this semester, you should be able to finish up with the grade you want this week. When you are done, complete this form to let me know you are finished.


If you do not finish this week, there is a full week's worth of assignments available for Dead Week. The course is over on Friday, December 11, at noon, so make sure you have a plan in place in order to complete all the assignments you need by then.


Also, the course evaluations at eval.ou.edu should be sometime this week, and I hope you will take a few minutes to fill that out, for this course and for your other courses too. You might even win an iPad!

Click on the link for your class:


Tuesday due date: READING (first half)

4 points  appx. 1-2 hours

This week and next week you have the choice of Story OR Story Lab. You can decide what works best for you as you finish up the class.







Here are the final assignments for the week:



8 points  appx. 60-90 min.

Check the email you received from me last week to see what you have due for Week 14; you will find all the assignment links on the Project Overview page. The quick links:

Storybook New Story Storybook Revisions Portfolio New Story - Portfolio Revisions


For those of you who are turning in a new story this week, keep in mind that this is your LAST story in the project, so choose wisely!


For those of you turning in revisions, here is the link to use if this will be your final project assignment of the semester: Final Revisions. (But if you will be turning in a Week 15 Project, then just do the regular revisions assignment for Week 14, and turn in Final Revisions for Week 15.)

PROJECT FEEDBACK 6 points 45 min. - 1 hour

Here are the details for Week 14: Project Feedback. For many of you, this will be your last feedback assignment, so I hope you will find good stories to read.

BLOG COMMENTS 4 points 30 min. - 45 min.

The Blog Comments assignment is different this week, and I hope you will enjoy that: the idea is to take a few minutes to give advice to future students in the class via our class Padlet. You might remember seeing that advice from past students, and now is your chance to chime in with advice for next year's classes.





If you have not been doing extra credit so far, now would be a good time to give it a try, just to see what these extra assignments are like and what you can learn from them. See Week 2 Extra Credit for details.


You can do these extra credit options any time during the week.

Extra Reading. Make up missed reading or explore new topics in your class: Myth-Folklore or Indian Epics.
