Fantastic, I try to teach my 6th graders on day one that if everyone has
a different
answer then everyone has the correct answer. Most seem to understand,
but soon
revert to trying to get me to tell them what is correct or what I want
them to do.
We have them well trained, because they even politely ask permission to
do the
slightest deviation from the norm. "This is art, if you have a better
idea do it that's
what art is all about, being different."
