FOR THE A or A+

CREATIVITY Project goes beyond the obvious. The student has made an effort to surpass the boundaries of the project and has opted to digest the novel and interpret it in a fresh way. However, all requirements have been met, and the project is not simply a “free-for-all” or a series of clever digressions. The assignment has been fulfilled and then surpassed.
