You have the option of sending me, via email, an outside resource (youtube link, article, etc.) that you think supplements, exemplifies, or challenges an in-class topic each week. This might be an example of a meter studied in class, a musical form, or an author who disagrees with an idea presented in one of our textbooks—and tell me why it sparked your interest!
A student can earn up to 0.5 points on his or her final grade each week through thoughtful extra credit submissions, points are awarded at my discretion, and a student cannot pass this class by only submitting extra credit.
For the purposes of this optional assignment, each week ends on Sunday at 11:59pm. There are 16 Sundays over the course of the term.
