Totally Uncalled For is an extra credit opportunity for Coach Blacks English classes. Students can write anything from book reviews, to three sentence poems. Totally Uncalled For is completely optional, but encouraged for extra credit. It is seen as a good way for students to share their work with their friends and get some extra credit points for their grades. The Totally Uncalled For board is used by many students, including myself. I think it gives us a chance to see a different creative side of each student that adds something on the board. said Sophomore Kirsten Rice.
