Linda Kelty responded:
I think the evaluation of perspective is most readily done using a rubric
which incorporates accuracy and understanding with creativity, elaboration
and craftsmanship.
As for why not teach Flat, inside out or disjointed, I doubt that any
teacher or program or teacher teaches only perspective. Any credible
program develops multiple approaches to generate success for their students,
if not in one study, then in another. We need to be careful not to
generalize on the basis of one aspect of a program, just as we should be
careful not to generalize the individual students.
