The latest biography at Garden of Praise is about a Pakistani girl named Malala Yousafzai. I think your students will be interested in the story of this brave young girl.

Malala Yousafzai is a young girl from Pakistan who believed girls as well as boys in her country should have the right to an education. She and her father Ziauddin were outspoken and defied the Taliban who opposed schooling for girls. As a result she was attacked and shot in the head. After many weeks in the hospital she was released and she and her family now live in England.

Please let me know if you have suggestions for future biographies which will correlate with your courses of study.

Several people have asked for help in setting up their classes and getting the code. Here's what you need to do.

First you need to register here, then click on the "Classes" tab on your profile page. There are directions on that page to tell you how to add your class and get a 4 digit code. You will give your students that code to use when taking a test. The computer will grade the test and save the grade for you. To retrieve the grades click on the "Testing" tab on your profile page. The grades will be recorded there for you to see. If you have further questions, email me and I will help you.

We at Garden of Praise stand ready to help you.

Your friend in education,
Patsy Stevens
