When all else fails, make the teacher laugh

I was just grading an interior design quiz I gave to my 8th graders.  They were supposed to list the principles of design.  I remember watching him as he took the quiz and could tell that he didn't remember some of them.  Here are his responses...

  1. Emphasis (correct)
  2. Harmony (correct)
  3. Potential (??? At least it starts with a P like it's supposed to)
  4. Pattern (That's an element, not a principle)
  5. Polygamy (What the?)
  6. Waffles (oh goodness)
Off to the side was a drawing of him holding a quiz with a big A on it, and he was wearing a t-shirt with an A+ on it.  Plus he drew a big star and said he was a star student. 

Nice try, buddy.
