Students have several opportunities throughout the school year in order to earn extra credit.
A question of the week is posted weekly in class, which students can earn up to an additional 5 points, depending on the completeness of their answers. Some questions come right from class activities, or the textbook, some are based on current events, and others can be found by doing an internet search for the topic.
In November and December, students can earn extra credit by posting - or responding to a post on the class blog The Revolving Earth
