To earn extra credit while I am here, you can answer all or whichever questions below that you want to answer. Each question
is worth 3 points each; thus, a total of 21 points are available for you.
To do the extra credit, you simply must answer the following questions exactly correct, en inglés.
When you turn in your answers (not the questions), you will not receive your paper back.
I will tell you, however, if your answers are correct. If one or more are not correct, you have the option of re-doing
the question, and turning the answer back into me. You can do this as often as you like until you get it correct!
The questions below are meant for you to do some research, but not much. If you have a question, please let me know.
However, please don't ask me if one of your answers is correct or not!!!!!!
The questions will be either culturally based, historically based, in the current news or could be what we are doing
in class right now.
Your answers are due to me no later than jueves, el 25 de marzo, by the end of the day.
