General Announcements

----------------------


Watch here for extra credit opportunities. Opportunities will rarely be
announced in class. Extra credit is always due within one week of the
assignment or event.

Opportunities are added frequently and generally require that you attend an
educational event sponsored by the University. Many of these events are free;
most Emens events are paid.

All extra credit is applied to the participation category and will be
reflected in the course grade at the end of the semester.

Extra Credit Opportunity: English Bulletin Board

Plan, design, and post on the English Bulletin Board in the hallway between my
room and Dodrill's room.

The board must be informative, interactive, and aesthetically pleasing. It
also must relate to something studied in class. If it's not good, you won't
earn any credit.


January - English 10 - board posted by January 9 (Kartik, Anna, Ivy)

February - Rhetoric - board posted between February 1 - 5

March - English 10 - board posted between March 1 - 5 (Taylor J, Kat, Savana,
Shantyle)

April - Rhetoric - board posted between April 1 - 5

May - English 10 - board posted between May 1 - 5 (Simple, ZRo, Caleb, Cody,
Wilky)

You may work with up to 5 people and you may only earn this extra credit once.
This will be on a first come basis; to claim your month, email me the name(s)
of everyone in your design crew. I will begin accepting emails at 3 pm on
Monday, January 5. 

----------------------
If you can think of something you believe is worthy of extra credit, let me
know. As long as it involves you writing and thinking, I will probably agree
with you.
