Need an extra credit opportunity?

This quarter, we are offering an extra credit opportunity. If you would like to earn some extra points toward your first timed writing test, this is your chance. All you need to do is revise one, two, or all three of your body paragraphs from the transportation essay you wrote the first week of school. You can earn up to two points per paragraph based on the quality of your revision. Remember to consider the lesson we taught on elaboration. Try to include personal, real-life examples, add specificity, and try developing your ideas further. When you finish, turn in the original essay along with the revised paragraphs (on separate paper) to earn extra points.
