In each of the seven groups you will see a new folder at the top of  your group forum space entitled “Extra Credit Essay submission,” and that is where you will submit your Extra Credit Essays by 9:00 PM Tuesday November 29th.  (Remember this is NOT required, this is totally voluntary). Your essay if submitted must conform to the guidelines given as to required formatting and required content (i.e., you must provide answers and/or serious discussion to the first 3 of the 5 items in the Extra Credit Forum Essay Instructions, and the best essays will also deal with at least one of the other 2 as well.

Please note that your Extra Credit Essay must deal with both these 3 short clips from Dr. David Martin on the Plandemic Two video (Source 1, listed in the following forum with the Extra Credit Question itself):)

I am not giving any hard and fast rules for this, but your essay must treat both of them in some depth to get credit; even if your essay is in great depth on Robert Kennedy’s chapter, you must also include some specific discussion and insight from the three Dr. David Martin, Pandemic Two video clips listed, and same in reverse There are some other sources listed, treatment of them is completely optional but it is well worth taking a quick look at them, for your own health.
