My daughter is a freshman in high school this year. I recently went to back to school night and was surprised to hear all of the teachers were very quick to list all of the ways that students can earn extra credit. Almost as if they felt they needed to appease the parents. Worse yet, the extra credit was things like bringing in a box of tissues, cans of food for ECHO ( or $$ if you don't want to lug cans around), etc... I teach elementary school and don't really offer extra credit. I work with students on a one-on-one basis when they do poorly on an assignment. I go over the concept with them again and might assign more work similar to the original assignment. If they do this I will adjust their score accordingly. I am wondering if you give extra credit. What are your thoughts on this?
