In all classes throughout the year I will accept extra credit essays. I will apply it to best benefit the student (replace a daily grade or 5 points to a major grade). 

The student must watch a live play performance an write an analysis essay. Essay must be typed, at least one page, 12 point font, Times New Roman font, and single spaced. The essay must be an analysis/review of the play NOT A SUMMARY. Students may discuss: set, acting, costume, music, lights, singing if it applies, ect. I am looking for your take way from the show, not a rendition of the plot. 

If the essay does not meet these standards, I will not accept it. I will accept essays up until May 20th.
