Extra credit options for S’08
As we discussed in yesterday’s class, you can submit up to 30 points worth of extra credit for 100w. Here are your three options, each of which is worth up to 15 points:
- Submit extra Copy Edit the World items
- Write a newspaper opinion piece (see item #6 on the Assignments page of this blog)
- Write your own obituary (see item #13B on the Assignments page of this blog)
Note that these options are worth “up to 15 points.” You get the full 15 points only if they’re well written and free of errors. As with any other assignment, typos and AP style errors (not to mention boring leads and poor organization) will reduce your grade.
Please post any extra credit items on your blog by April 29 and title them “extra credit.” To get extra credit, they must be posted on your blog by April 29.
Also note that this does not include the up to 25 points you can earn for getting something published this semester. You have until our exam day (Wednesday, May 21, from 9:45-12 noon) to show proof of publication (or acceptance for future publication).
