I love giving my classes a choice or a chance to give their own opinion. I tend to get 'answers' and art work that span the textbook and their own brain – there IS 'no wrong answers'. I tend to grade on the fact that THEY gave me an answer and if pushed, they can back-up their answers.
I just want students who will push themselves as they become 'creative'. It has become another "non-graded" assignment. The ONLY grade they get is "Did they do the assignment – YES or NO? I don't even grade their artwork per-say – just do as they were told.
I just want to know that made the attempt to do the assignment.
