I thought of asking students to write an essay on classical architecture before midterm. The topic would be free, the important thing would be the students to be interested in the topic they would choose to deal with. These essays allowed me to see through their personality, background and potential of each student. And they have been very helpful for tailoring accordingly my teaching in the second part of the semester. It seems that this system worked in some ways and I am happy to say that I have had the pleasure of seeing a number of my CYA students following relevant career paths , in the end.
