Extra Credit for Non-English Courses
Students have the opportunity to receive extra credit in their non-English courses by reading books related to those subjects. For example, for their history course, students can read The Jungle by Upton Sinclar, which chronicles both the harsh living conditions of 20th-century immigrants living in the U.S. and the numerous health violations in the food industry.
- Prior to reading the book, the student should contact their teacher and request the option to write a book report for extra credit.
- If the teacher approves, the same essay requirements apply as for the English essays. Including the same pass/fail standards.
- Each book read can only result in one essay submitted to one course.
- For example, if a student reads Animal Farm by George Orwell, he or she cannot write an essay on Animal Farm for both English and history
