There will be a maximum ceiling of 10 points to be received for this bonus assignment.  For example: A student could get 5 points on one paper and 2 points on another one for a total of 7 bonus points. 

At some point over the semester the student is asked to do something out of the ordinary for someone besides themselves.  Examples: Volunteer time at the Soup Kitchen or service projects, taking an umbrella to Walmart on a rainy day and walking people to their cars, offering to put shopping carts away for shoppers, taking  a water bottle to a construction worker on a humid day, etc.  Once the extraordinary deed has been performed, write NO MORE than 1 page on the experience and what you learned about the person whom you helped.
