Students wanted to "have a picnic!"... I told them "Only if I can grade you on the quality!".
And they said "Bring It On!" So I devised a detailed and exciting rubric to challenge student creativity by including the need for themes, guest consideration, food choice and quantity, etc
BEWARE: This is a highly challenging and detailed rubric. Students are forced to push their level of creativity beyond the usual "brown bag lunch". Costumes, thematic design, forethought and planning are implied. Please send feedback if you use this - I'd love to hear of your success!
