Benefit

The assignment is worth one full letter grade. For example, if you earn a "B" and you complete the Extra Credit assignment at Professional Level or above, your course grade will be an "A."

Group

You can write the paper in a group. There is no limit to the size of the group, and you can work with students from other sections of 306. When you post your paper to Blackboard, list everyone in the group on the top of the first page. Also, each member of the group must post a copy of the (same) paper to Blackboard.

Analysis

Your analysis paper should contain two parts. The first part is a brief summary of the book—a simple explanation of what the book was about. Because this is an extra credit assignment, it only needs to be a short, simple summary.

The second part is your own personal reaction to the book. What do you think of the book's ideas? Tell me what you personally think. Yes, you can write in first person. There's no right or wrong answer, so be confident in your opinions!
