Okay. My kids were required to read a book from the science fiction genre (we've spend the past month focusing on science fiction) and write a book report on it. I have a student who wrote a fantastic book report - on Twilight, which is more fantasy than science fiction. I've told the students if they are unsure, ask! This student did not ask, so instead of giving her a 35/35, I've taken 10 points off since she didn't follow the directions. My husband says I'm being way to mean and that 10 points is too much. I think I'm being generous - she didn't read a book from the correct genre - I could give her a 0 for not doing the assignment correctly! What do you guys think? Thanks!
