we could give ’em to make ’em turn in their best work. Because I’d be prescribing that one to all of them. I don’t know what it is this year, but the projects I’m getting are just baaaad. Lazy-bad. I-didn’t-read-the-directions-bad. I-read-but-ignored-the-directions-bad. Even-though-we-worked-on-it-for-three-days-in-class-I’m-still-clueless-bad. I read them the riot act today but that never works. Then I tried to add a degree of life-lesson to it by pointing out that we only get to live once and every action we take is a reflection of who we are as a person. Which might be a little heavy but I do sort of live by it, except when I’m rationalizing away my own mistakes. Tomorrow I’m making them assess their own work using the rubric and then giving them the option of taking it home for another try – but I’m a little pissed that it’s come to this given the three hours of classtime and 19 days altogether that they had to complete this project.
