    Extra Credit Opportunities:

     

    Watch a Ted Talk (go to http://www.ted.com/talks) - it should be about the subject of science. You are to write a ONE PAGE summary - you must use this page for your summary - not your own paper. You must have the following:

    • title of the talk
    • name of the speaker
    • your name
    • must be handwritten - will not accept typed summary
    • must fill the page completely with your summary. You can go onto the back if you need but the front must be filled. It is an all or nothing assignment. If it is not all the way filled in, you won't get any credit.

    It is worth 3 points on a test grade - you can only do 5 Ted Talks per nine weeks - for a total of 15 points.

    Due date is Tuesday October 3rd.  Being absent on Tuesday October 3rd will not get you an extension. Any Ted Talks handed in after 4:10 pm on Tuesday October 3rd will NOT be counted.

    NO EXCEPTIONS - NONE - SERIOUSLY - NONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
