More Q&A on the 100 Point Project

Q: When are we getting our lucky rocks?
A: Not yet.

Q: Can I interview a Veteran for this project? 
A: Yes.

Q: What if the Veteran tells me things I can't write about?
A:  Ask them nicely to tell you a story you can write about because you need this for history class.

Q: What if the things I want to write about are classified?
A: Double intriguing! I bet you can change a few names and make it work. Talk to me about this!

Q:  I want to write a cookbook.
A: That's an interesting angle! Here's an idea - perhaps you could use family recipes passed down over generations and tie them to history. Let's talk.

Q: Can I research my family tree for this project?
A: Yes! Yes! But don't get lost. The assignment is not to tell me your family history, that would be pretty tedious to recount. Look for a single good story and place it in the context of your family tree.

Q: What inspires you to write?
A: Love.

Q: What if we skip the project?
A: You would have a 0 for 100 points of the class, and you missed an opportunity to do something you'll be proud of for a very long time. 

Q: Where can I get help with my writing?
A: The Learning Commons. Please go, they are awesome.

Q: When is the Spring Dinner again?
A: Again? I haven't announced it. I'm glad you're excited. We will discuss it this week. Meanwhile, keep in mind that students who completed Treasure Hunt Part 4 and/or complete their 100 point project will have the first shot at signing up for the Service Project.
