Bonus credit opportunities

  • Students who attended the human rights workshop should collect their certificates. Pass by the club’s table on Wednesday, Oct. 25, on the ground floor to collect them. Bring your certificate, along with a one-paragraph summary of the talk, to me during my office hours to receive your bonus credit.
  • It was announced that students can earn up to five percent bonus credit for going 10 times to the English Department’s Writing Lab (first floor in the library) for tutoring. They must take the bonus credit form with them, but only a TA (either Ms. Bushra or Ms. Fajer) may tutor them for bonus credit.
  • The English Department will host Musical Poetry on Monday, Dec. 4, at 12:30. Students who attend, stay for the entire performance, and write a paragraph explaining which poem was their favorite and why will receive 1/2 percent bonus credit. Students who perform will receive 2%.

Homework – Read “E-Waste and E-Waste Recycling” (pp. 183-184) in the MySkillsLab e-reader before class on Thursday, Oct. 26.

What we will do in class on Thursday, Oct. 26 – We will write a cause and effect essay to practice for the midterm exam next week. This will be for a mark.
