    Press Release: Week 4 Assignments

    @Dojh167 I don't think we made this clear as to whether this is a different "section" as identified in the "Graphics" portion of the Week 1 Assignments post. While it was originally intended to be its own section (and thus to have a header), let's treat it like this. If you are setting it out as a separate section from your Articles in your final product, it needs a header PLUS the two (2) required graphics. If you are not setting it out as a separate section you can choose whether to use one (1) of your two (2) images as a header or not.

    For Love of Fanfiction

    Oh, dear... that means so much, thank you, you have no idea. Ever since I've found fanfiction, it's been a wild personal ride, but I think it's been a great one, and it'll only get better if you all are anything to judge by. But serious props to you for giving your students that kind of an assignment, really. It means a ton to know there are teachers like you not giving out the assignments I described in my personal soapbox above. I agree with you on the importance of essays (Even if I seem to prefer writing unconventional ones), though, I seem to keep getting the by-the-book teachers. Thanks for reading, and for the great welcome!

    For Love of Fanfiction

    I want to echo what @Margaret has said. I’m also an English/Language Arts teacher and one of the things I want my students to cultivate is their own creativity. I think essays can be a way to do that. I let my students choose a topic and I tell them to imagine the person they are writing to in order to give their writing voice. I’ve had students who have hated writing tell me that they are excited to work on their essays. I don’t say this to brag—I say it because I think there’s something to be said for the “typical English essay” and its capacity to help students communicate their opinions and, often, to come into their own. I do sympathize, though, because I know there are teachers out there who teach “by the book” and focus on structure instead of voice. I don’t think there’s anything particularly wrong with that, but I do agree it’s less engaging. (Also, studies have shown that explicit grammar instruction can actually cause writing skills to plummet. So I do very little and I try to make it fun.) But more importantly, I am so glad you found our community! I feel the same about fanfiction. It has always (well, almost always) felt like fun to me—not a chore, not a duty. It’s a place I could explore the craziness in my head. And I immediately gravitated to HP fanfiction because the world felt so familiar to me—kind of like coming home. I also admire you so much for sharing your thoughts on love and opening up about your sexuality. You’ll find that we are an incredibly inclusive community and I am so proud to be a part of it. I’m never afraid to share personal things because I know that these wonderful humans are some of the best out there and they won’t judge me. They’re all supportive. And like I said: The. Best. You’ll fit right in, hun.

    Hey guys could I ask you review this piece instead. London at Park Lane (M) I'm loopy and stupid with my OF. Sorry. Not trying to jump the line. I'm crippling indecisive.

    These Spells Are Not Gluten Free

    Are the number of strands in a round challah different? One of my friends makes Finnish Biscuit for New Years every year, but I can't find any sources (albeit with a limited Google Search) suggesting that it is considered a ritualistic sort of food. Lisa might just have the time at New Year's (and the willing audience). It is braided (straight, not round) and has the same colour of challah. She brings me a loaf as we tend to invite them over for New Year's. It is so pretty and yummy. I can't say I've had the pleasure of making challah or any other braided breads myself, but I've got difficulty getting bread to rise, much less creating the right recipe that won't die under braiding. In a world where prayer can be as simple as putting one foot in front of the other, I think it is interesting to think about all of these things that have "always" been done with the intent of bringing good luck. Thanks for commenting!

      Would love that superpower and luxury, but alas - it feels like I don't have enough time to do all my study, let alone read for pleasure

    4. 800 words of heaven

      And what I meant to say was that I have not read 523 books - not that 523 was my goal
