There are no wrong answers.
And this is true, to an extent. I don't teach math, where every answer has a defined answer or set of answers. With the exception of x=x, there is always a limit to the number of right answers.
I teach English, where the emphasis is the expression if ideas, even if the ideas totally contradict the person sitting in the next seat, or contradict my own. I keep most of my own ideas out of the mix as I don't want them clouding my judgment, but every now and then I read an essay that I totally disagree with, but the expression and support of these ideas are what matters.
Here are some of my favorites:
- A Communist regime would be good for the United States
- Football is communist in nature because it detracts attention and money from baseball, which is the American pasttime.
- Your shirt is not red; red is the color it rejects.
- All drugs should be legalized.
- Death Row inmates should participate in gladiator games.
- A No-Fly-type list should be established that would prevent certain people from speaking.
- Global warming, obesity, and economic problems can all be solved by riding bicycles.
- To prevent teenage pregnancies, all female high school students should take a safe sex course.
- Third-world sweat shops are a necessary evil as they provide income to countries that have virtually no natural exports, thereby creating an economy.
