You may do one additional assignment as Extra Credit. You can either do another Sports, Person At Work, or Feature photo only. Five photos on the page with complete, correct captions.
CAPTION: The caption must be written in the Simple Present Tense, (runs, studies, eats, fixes, etc.) and it should include all of the Who, What, Where and When information. The person/people should be identified by their first and last name, and by grade if it’s a student (by grade number in parentheses after their name), or job title (before the person’s name) if it’s a staff person. Example: Mary Johnson (12) or Math Teacher John Heineman. Be sure to include a space in between the student’s name and grade, and be sure not to use a comma in between the staff person’s title and first name.
The caption must also contain a second sentence written in the Past Tense telling something else about what’s happening in the photo or some other information about the person or event photographed.
Captions must be spell checked, and all of the names of people MUST be spelled correctly. Captions with misspelled names will result in an automatic 0 for the assignment.
The Caption is worth 40 points out of the total 100 points for the assignment. It will be graded as an all-or-nothing grade. If it is written in the correct style with all of the correct information in the correct form and everything is spelled correctly, you will receive all 40 points. If any of the information is missing, or if it is written in the incorrect style, you will receive 0 points. That means the best grade you could receive on the assignment, assuming everything else is perfect, would be a 60% which is an F.
Captions are extremely important! Write them carefully!
If you have questions, ask Mr. Keller BEFORE you submit the assignment.
