I'm currently teaching a class of high school art students that is strictly
indepentdent study and I am having a hard time grading them at the end of
the marking period. Some students have finished tons of quality work.
Others have tackled dfficult projects and hit brick walls and never really
completed anything. But they work hard every day. They keep a daily
journal of their work and a list of finished pieces. I feel like I'm
pulling a grade out of my hat.
