Extra Credit Spring 2018

posted Jan 8, 2018, 2:20 PM by Mr Lundberg   [ updated May 29, 2018, 10:14 AM ]

There are four extra credit options for this semester. You may only complete one per six-weeks, and you may do each option only once. Each is worth up to 10 bonus points on your lowest category average.

  • Option 1: Choose 10 direct references to the character(s) in the novel we are reading. For each quote (with page number!), describe what it tells us about that character and explain its significance for the text as a whole. Your product should include visuals.
  • Option 2: Choose an extended passage (6-10 pages) from the novel we are reading and mark it for SCASI (written on post-its or directly on a photocopy). You must have at least 3 of each and 20 annotations total.
  • Option 3: Identical assignment to Reading Task #3 (no double-dipping!), no proposal needed.
  • Option 4: Using the Extra Credit Proposal Form: propose the assignment, how it should be graded, and how it would deepen your understanding of the novel we are reading. Mr. Lundberg can refuse any proposal on any grounds. He can also modify it and/or open it up to all students. If approved, the project should be completed according to your guidelines.
