My son earned 100 on his Utah project. On his self-evaluation form, he wrote these answers:
Why did you choose this state?
Because people can be polygamists.
I haven't talked to him about this issue, I swear!! Except he brought it up after he started the project and had read some books, but when we asked him what it was, he had it confused with homosexuality, which he does know about (since we have friends who are same-sex couples), and I clarified what polygamy is. Not the same thing. No comment from the teacher, no surprise. She's got to wonder sometimes, with some of his responses on papers.
What would you do differently if you did your report over?
I wouldn't write this.
Answer to the rest of the questions:
What was your best work on the project?
What did you like most about the project?
And about 5 other questions:
Each answered with: Coloring the flag.
This, unfortunately, is where the autism issues/answering questions problem comes in.
