Extra Credit Opportunities

Extra Credit Policy:

Extra credit opportunities are provided several times each trimester
They are entered into the gradebook as an extra assignment (e.g. 20/20 points), NOT out of 0 (which skews the gradebook)

New opportunities may arise throughout the school year. If you have your own idea, please propose it. I will often post new opportunities on Google Classroom, or customize an extra credit assignment for an individual student based on a play they attended, a book they read or a connection between their personal interests and ELA (reading, writing, speaking and listening) skills. Below you will find some of the recurrent opportunities.
