I request my high school students save everything in their portfolio,
sketches, mistakes and failures as well as successes to show their progress.
They know not to let me find half decent stuff in the trash. If I do, I tell
the culprit I am going to have to redo their grade -- if they consider the
work trash, I guess I should, too.
That brings about a change of heart.
