Golden Ratio/Language Arts Extra Credit Opportunity:
You worked with your "team" of "paleontologists" to construct the skeleton using the "tibia bone" you "found" on your dig in Indonesia. But who was this person when he or she was alive? For this language arts extra credit opportunity, you will develop this skeleton's character and tell his or her life story.
The story must be typed in a Google Doc and shared by Friday, March 24. Use what you know about developing realistic, multi-dimensional characters from our study of The Outsiders and your IR. Use what you already know about how to tell a compelling story to draft, revise, and edit this one.
The final draft must be a minimum of 2 pages double spaced. It must include the proper heading (Assignment Name: Golden Ratio Skeleton Story) and an original title. You are expected to take the time to revise and edit your work, and it is highly recommended that you come during extra help hours to have a conference about your writing before you turn in your final draft.
You will earn one bonus point added onto your Marking Period 3 average for completing this extra credit opportunity!
Have fun! I can't wait to read your skeleton's story!
