What students will remember is more important than standards, conjugations, test scores, grades... Remember that relationships matter most!

Can you help with a survey?
 
Dear friends of BWLP,
We have the opportunity to participate in an important research project in support of a colleague and friend of our project, Emily, who is working in her PhD at Cal. Would you kindly respond to her request to take a 10-15 minute survey as explained in the attached letter? This is an important part of Emily's research, so do please consider how you might help support her in this important work. Thank you so much!
