EXTRA CREDIT POLICY
2010 updated 2/10/10
Any non-poetry original text
in the English language that you have published
or accepted for publication for the public while
you are enrolled in this course (in a newspaper, book, magazine, journal, or
other edited hardcopy or Internet publication, including letters to
the editor), counts for extra credit, whether the text published was written
for this class or not. The amount of extra credit will depend on the length
of the published text or article, its appropriateness to this course, and where it is published.
Please provide clippings or links to of whatever you have
published, with full details of where and when it was published,
and the nature of the publication. Extra credit is not
available for published graphics, poetry, or music, for
self-published items, or for items published before the beginning or
after the end
of the course.
reserve the right to award extra credit for special achievement in the
class, such as a particularly outstanding essay or work clearly above and
beyond the expected level of this course. This should be extremely rare, however, and
you may NOT request extra credit be given in this manner.
Extra credit will be
offered for extra Agency Observation Memos on additional agencies
related to a student's theme. These memoranda must meet the same
criteria as the original Agency Observation Memo and will be graded
on the same rubric as the original memo. Extra credit will
also be granted for extra rhetorical or visual analyses related to
your theme, and for extra published opinion pieces, all to be graded
on the same rubric as the original assignments. Extra credit
assignments may not be submitted before the due date of the
corresponding regular assignment.
ANY materials (projects or
publications) you submit for extra credit must be turned in by ten calendar
days before the last
regular class meeting of the course. The amount of extra credit
available depends completely on instructor discretion. No extra credit will be assigned for any
work you turn in after that deadline. IMPORTANT: this is not
intended to replace missing papers that were not turned inófor this
reason, if on the last day of the course you are still missing any major
assignment, I cannot credit you with any extra credit points, even though
you might have completed and turned in an excellent extra credit
publication. No student can get over
1000 points in this course.
