Rubistar Rubric Maker Saves the Day
I wept at Bob's news. He lost his home to foreclosure after gambling away his income tax return. His wife left him. His son got busted for heroine possession, and his dog got run over by a tractor. I headed down to his room during lunch to console him. When I walked in, I was surprised to see him smiling. "He must be in denial," I thought. "Poor guy."
He looked up from his desk, "Hey Scooter! What's shakin'?" he asked. "I just found the greatest thing ever!"
"Bob, I heard the bad news," I said. I'm so sorry--"
"Nonsense!" he interrupted. "My life may be ruined. My kids hate me. My wife things I'm a louse, and my best friend died. But you need to see this awesome website. It's called Rubistar Rubric Maker or something like that. My buddy, Sal, told me about Rubistar for teachers and I figured I had nothing to lose, so I checked it out. This is the greatest day of my life!"
"Rubistar for teachers?" I said. "I need to check that out." And I did.
You should too.
