I get e-mail from teachers looking for support with grading. The fact is, I'm getting more and more of it, both through the blog address and at work. I won't say that all of the questions and needs are the same, but I will say that the common factor is that nearly every teacher who makes time to write feels like they are an island in the sea of grading.
I hear you.
No, really. This morning, I purchased a new domain specifically for grading and am putting together a Ning as a point of connection for you. It's time you all had some way to find and connect with one another. You have a lot to share and would benefit from being able to find each other. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised to discover just how many other islands there are. Trust me, it's not just you floating along out there.
So, stay tuned. Keep those e-mails coming, so I know where to send the invitations to help get the party started.
