Hello, diligent students!
You’ve come here to complete your reading assignment, and today you’ll have the chance to be rewarded. This is my way of saying thank you for keeping up with the classwork!
It’s quick, fun, and a little silly. It’ll show me who’s keeping up with the assigned readings and will reward those who do.
Ready? Here’s what you do:
1. DM me.
Send me a message in Canvas with just an emoji. For example, your message to me might be: 🙃 This is how I’ll determine who did the reading and who is just joining in on the animal noises.
I recommend that you send me the emoji message now so you don’t forget. It’s due BEFORE class. Once class starts, the opportunity to submit the emoji message is over. Do that now.
2. Show up.
Come to class on time as you normally would.
3. Put something on your head.
Put something on your head. Yup, on your head: a pencil, your notebook, a paperclip, whatever you got, put it on your head (No Bunchems though. IYKYK). You can even just tuck a pen behind your ear. That works. Just put something on your head.
Make sure I acknowledge you. Once I acknowledge you personally, you’ll know I awarded you the extra credit points.
Do NOT answer any questions about what we’re doing or why we’re doing it. That will disqualify you and possibly end the activity for everyone. No private chats, verbal explanations, or gestures. Just go ahead and put something on your head. Only those who did the reading assignment will know what’s going on.
So that’s how we’re starting our next class. Are you in? This extra credit activity is worth two points on your FINAL EXAM GRADE.
It’s simple: Send me a message, join class early, and make a noise 🐯🐸🐶🐄🐷🐓🦆🙉
