Imagine if your house burned down. With only a short time to gather a few belongings and throw them into your car, what would you save?

Unfortunately, one of our edublogger colleagues, Barbara Barreda, is facing exactly this situation right now. Please read more at the web site set up by Clarence Fisher and Jen Wagner and donate generously during her time of need. If you don’t have any extra funds or clothes right now, even some supportive wishes would be most welcome.

Barbara is a wonderfully thoughtful blogger and administrator. She and I have been trading messages and resources for over a year about effective (and ineffective) grading practices. Anything you can do to help her (including passing this post along to others) would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
