Extra Credit Opportunity

I mentioned in class before break that there would be an extra credit opportunity related to some upcoming library workshops. This is your official announcement about those. Here’s how it will work:

  • First you’ll attend one of the following four library workshops described in this portal post. (If you attend more than one, you can only get extra credit once. Sorry.)
    • October 23: 7:00PM — APA & MLA citation: Citing sources for academic papers to avoid plagiarism; Location: 5100 — Computer Lab Room 115
    • November 6: 7:00PM — Advanced Search Techniques: Develop effective search strategies; Location: 5100 — Computer Lab Room 115 UPDATED LOCATION: Howard Colman Library, Rare Book Room
    • November 20: 7:00PM — The Research Process: Demonstrate key steps for refining and researching a topic; Location: 5100 — Computer Lab Room 115
    • December 4: 7:00PM — Open Forum: Pre-final exam cram session. Snacks will be provided; Location: Howard Colman Library — Rare Book Room
  • Take a picture of yourself at the event and get it to me somehow. (Email is fine, or you could attach it to a tweet to @rhet351.) Perhaps you could get a picture of yourself with Rachael the librarian, or anything else that shows that you’re really there.
  • Once I get your proof-of-attendance, I’ll exclude your lowest 20-point score in the small assignments category. That’s not exactly the same as giving you a full 20/20; instead, it will be as if that assignment never existed. (Ask me if you’d like to see the math.)

That’s it!
