One of my daughter's assignments over the next week and a half is to write a research paper on Nevada. I had her make a list of specific things she'd like to study and write about. Eventually, she chose the Hoover Dam. I then told her to make a list of things she wanted to find out about the Dam. Here's the list:
- why it was created
- how it was created
- how it affected them
- how it affects us now
- (note: is it made of pizza? -_-)
Aah, home schooling. It's those moments where I wonder if I should mark up her grade for incorporating the joke, or mark it down for being a smart alec on a school assignment. Thoughts?
