• There are two ways to get extra credit second semester.  One way is to read and annotate a novel.  The other way is by visiting the Museum Of Tolerance.  If you choose to do extra credit turn it before the last week of the semester.  I will not accept any extra credit after the Friday before finals week!!!

    Read and annotate any of the novels below.  You must annotate the full novel and give a written analysis (essay) of how it relates to the topic we covered in class.  You can read and annotate up to two novels.  Each novel will be worth up to 50 extra credit points.

    Museum of Tolerance Extra Credit

    If you wish to get from 1-100 points of extra credit this semester you can visit the Museum of Tolerance in West Los Angeles.  If you choose to go make sure you take a couple of pictures of yourself at the museum so I can make sure that went.  Also, you need to write at least a two page report (typed, double spaced, size 12 font) on what you saw and learned.  There are Holocaust survivors that speak at the museum and you can get more points if you listen to them and report on them as well.  There is an admission fee to get into the museum so you will have to donate the money to get in.   You might want to call the museum ahead of time to make sure they are open and don't have a lot of people going the museum.
