Pity that they have to worry about grades
sometimes. I just wanted to tell her how proud I was of her risking for
success. She can always tell me what she has learned from mistakes, and
she had great ideas to fix a lot of problems that occured.
I think that in the visual arts our rubrics for grading should include observed artistic behaviors such as risk taking, persistence, passion, personal connection etc. What do you think?
