In a class about creativity (improvisation), it’s only natural to take some creative approaches to learning and assessing learning. As we discussed in class on Friday morning, please add a comment listing 5 creative alternatives to preparing for and taking a test covering concepts and terminology. The answer to every “can I” sort of question is yes, provided you are not going to hurt yourself or someone else in the process, and that it is possible to do.
In class I mentioned one of my past favorites, in which a student showed his understanding of the qualities of a good strings teacher and orchestra program by writing a short story in which Dr. Evil (yes, the one from the Austin Powers movies) interviewed candidates to teach in the Evil School System.
