Those questions make a good point. When I taught English, I learned I had to ask the question I wanted students to answer. I had to avoid asking a question open to interpretation. Even when I write e-mails, I have to avoid the use of too many pronouns which leave the reader confused. I enjoyed reading Eats, Shoots, and Leaves.

Oh yes, I'd be willing to give marks for creativity and humour.

The creativity of the answers definitely deserves some credit. This student may do better in the long run than the ones who can answer with memorized facts.

Some of those were downright funny. Thanks for the chuckles, CiCi!

Very sensible answers!

Pauline Woodcock said...

Those answers surely deserve more than 50%. I'd say the child got every one right and actually thought about the answers. Very funny!

Although I can't remember now the wording on the first math word problem Maya had on a test, and which she got wrong because she translated it literally (and was really upset that she got it wrong too until Mandy explained her error and she hit her forehead with her hand and said "Oh! DUH!" I got a lot of chuckles out of those answers to the questions you had here! Original for sure!
