It takes a special kind of teacher to give out an entirely subjective assignment, and then tell kids they did it “wrong” when they don’t agree with them.

One of my daughters had a first grade teacher who assigned the kids to create a photo-essay of their early lives. Our kids were adopted late, age 3 and 4, and they had no baby photos, so we suggested she draw her pictures. After she turned in her drawings and short bio, the teacher told her she would get a bad grade unless she completed the assignment with photos. She suggested using baby pictures of strangers cut out of magazines.
