I’m very familiar with most of the assignments and structure of this course since I took mythology and folklore last semester. I know it does seem a little much at first, but I can’t wait to get in the hang of things and on a set schedule again.
The reading each week is a real essential in this class, as it gives the base for storytelling, as well as the understanding of the unit. I generally really enjoy the reading, and I also enjoy telling my own story from the reading. It gives me a chance to break the monotony of other class work and let my imagination fly. The project is really tough at first in the decision stages, but once I figure out exactly what I want to do, it will be so much fun again.
Extra credit makes anyone happy, right?
I mean, just doing one or two extra credit assignments a week can help finish the class up before dead week. I was so proud of the pace I worked at last semester that allowed me to finish early, and I hope to do the same this semester! My favorite extra credit option is the famous last words. It really allows me to pause and think about my week. Also, it’s cool to have a “diary” of how the entire semester went in school and outside of school on a blog.
