Final grades for the second six-weeks are due this Friday, November 3. Wait, wasn't that six-weeks actually only five weeks long? We know. We don't make the rules; we just have to follow them.
The OHWP recognizes that grades might have gotten away from you in this short grading period, so we're here with some extra credit options for your ELA class if you need them. Most ELA teachers are willing to give you extra credit simply for typing up and submitting your writing to this website. That's right, you don't even have to get published; you just have to try.
Follow these steps to make sure you get the credit you deserve:
1. Check your grades at my.austinisd.org.
2. Tell your ELA teacher you are submitting your writing to the O. Henry Writing Project and see what extra credit they'll offer.
3. Type up your own original writing. It can be a personal narrative you wrote for ELA, a poem you've been working on, or simply an opinion piece about something that affects you as a student.
4. Submityour writing to this website by clicking "THE GALLERIES" and then "SUBMIT" and clicking the link to the Google Form. Google Docs are our preferred method of submission, but you can also copy and paste your writing into the text box on the form.
That's it! Happy publishing.
