Lately I have been asked whether I will be providing any extra credit opportunities. The answer is “yes” and “no”. Any extra credit opportunities I present will either be here online on the blog, or via Twitter, or the will be presented in class in conjunction with an existing assignment. For example, today’s quiz featured an opportunity for students to gain as much as 10 bonus points on their timed writing if they added additional examples of DRAPES.
My goal is to assist my students in completing their work to their fullest capabilities which is why I don’t prefer to offer extra credit in the form of additional work. Please continue to use this blog as a means to assist you in supporting your student. Of course I am always glad to clarify any questions that may arise.
