Extra Credit Assignment for Furman Engaged!
(feel free to copy and paste and/or modify):

An integrative reflection on Furman Engaged!

You may be aware of the Furman Engaged! Integrative Essay Contest. Participation in the contest may be considered for extra course credit; please discuss this possibility with me if you are interested.  But even if you do not plan to submit an essay for the contest, you may still earn extra credit by writing a short, integrative reflection on your attendance at Furman Engaged! sessions.  To do so:

  1. Attend at least three distinct presentation sessions.
  2. Write 1-2 pages describing how you might integrate material from the sessions into a single essay with a clear and compelling context.  For example, context might be provided by a significant problem, question, or hypothesis that provides a meaningful framework for integrating material that otherwise seems disparate.

“Sessions” refers to formal presentation sessions.  Sessions comprised of multiple short presentations or a panel are considered ONE session.  Poster sessions may be integrated but may not count as one of the three sessions.
