I will add links to extra credit opportunities here. Once completed you can submit a file with the following format ID_lastname_bookname.docx to the following upload.


There are two books that you can read for extra credit. For each, I expect a maximum 750 word paper that discusses the book at how it relates to our course and your major. In the first paragraph state how many pages you read, which chapter was your favorite, and your favorite quote from the book. Each report can earn you up to 2 percentage points extra on your final grade.

Periodic Readings

I expect an article report of no more than 375 words. Write the paper to convince me that you read the article, that you understand its main point, and how it relates to a topic in our class. These periodic readings are shorter in length and each report can earn you you 1/4 credit towards an analysis.
