Last week, the School News Network (an education news site based in Grand Rapids, MI) ran this article about Rocket Spelling. It hints at the heart behind this website: Rocket Spelling is one student's quest to make spelling more fun for the next generation of students than it was for him.

If you teach math and want to make a tough concept fun, you might consider gamifying it in this way!
