Walt Disney: Allowing Creativity Within The Standards

We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
My students are currently studying achievers. Today, they compared 
and contrasted a written biography to a couple of film clips. 
Tomorrow students will have three choices in response to their readings.
They may create an animated flip book that includes a biography of Walt Disney, create a play, or write an essay. My requirements will be that the theme is how Disney failed, but succeeded. Students must base their stories on facts from the research, and include two examples of textual evidence. 
This will be based on the following rubric.
Creativity/ideas  50 points
Textual evidence 20 points
Central idea/Theme 20 points
Conventions  10 points
