This is a handout for students that inquire about extra credit opportunities in English or Language Arts class. It offers 5 options (2 options for an explanatory essay, creative writing - poetry, creative writing - short story, and a book report). I've used this handout for both middle school and high school. It's a quick go-to to give to students that ask me about earning extra points in class. The requirements are general and broad enough to use in any class that focuses on ELA skills. The handout includes information about points that can be earned, but of course that can be changed to fit your class and/or point system you already have in place.
