All students have the opportunity for extra credit, to raise their class average.
Periodically, I will show science related videos in class. Students should take notes on the video, then put the notes into well written paragraphs that summarize this material. A well written summary that is at least one page in length will result in 10 extra points. These points are added to their cumulative point total for their assignment category.
If the student watches a nature or science show at home, they can also write a summary for extra credit, using the same format above. NOVA is a great show on Tuesday's at 8:00 PM (Cable Channel 3). Students can check with the teacher for verification on individual shows or movies. (No Sci-Fi.)
