  1. Thanks for putting these resources together. For my classes I had put together a short storify in order to stimulate conversation. My class had spent quite some time talking about ways people could help Japan rebuild.
    If anyone else is interested, here is a site for students around the world to get involved in helping rebuild Japan in an easy and fun way:

  2. I thought the story on the struggles to re-open schools in Japan were very telling of the challenges that lie ahead in the re-construction of Japan. Also the interactive timeline was extremely interesting to look at. Thanks for getting the links together and so easily accesible.

  3. Hi Larry,
