The Show Made By, With, and For Students
Extra Credit is a Michigan Learning Channel original series for 6th Grade – 8th Grade students that covers all kinds of topics. Learn core subjects like math and writing, and see virtual field trips and interview segments that high school students help write, produce, and star in. Now, we’re pulling back the curtain to show you how to do the same thing in your classroom with students of any age.
What Makes Extra Credit?
Extra Credit is all about topics that are relevant to students. Watch an episode or two to get a feel for the series, and see the list of prompts below to inspire your students. Make sure you’ve visited the Getting Started page to familiarize yourself and your students with video and recording practices. Once your video is complete, share it with us and we’ll feature it on the Michigan Learning Channel YouTube channel! Just send us an email at MLC@dptv.org.
