Extra Credit Assignments


Spring 2016


Instructions: At any time during the semester, you may raise your grade on the research essay or Wikiedia project by up to one letter grade by attending a public lecture and writing a two page (500 word) report on what you heard. You may bring outlines and drafts of your extra credit essay for criticism and improvement during regular office hours. In your report identify the main thesis or the most interesting idea presented by the speaker. Explain why you agree or disagree, giving reasons.
