SPRING BREAK EXTRA CREDIT!!!

Posted: April 5, 2011 by mcculloughmg in Uncategorized

You may complete one extra credit assignment (worth one missing assignment or 10 pts extra credit) by completing the following assignment and emailing it or handing it in by Monday April 11th.

  • Choose one issue you are interested in from the menu on the right.
  • Complete a 10% summary of the “overview” page that pops up once you click on your topic.

Directions/FCA’s  for a 10% summary:

1.  Your summary may not contain more than 5 consecutive (in a row) words from the overview you are reading.

2.  Your 10% summary must contain the 4W’s (Who, What, When and Where) of the topic as applicable.

3.  Your summary must be 10% of the original document’s length

(Example, if the source you read is 10 paragraphs, you will write a 1 paragraph summary.  If the source you read is 20 lines of text you will write a 2 line summary.  If the source you read is 12 pages you would round down from 1.2 pages to about 1 page.)
