Located in Barre, MA, the Quabbin School: (l-r) Jennifer Goscila (age 13, grade 8) stands behind her red teammate Claire Usher (age 12, grade 7); Erin Stevens, 7th grade social studies teacher and SCRABBLE® coach; and Renee Beauregard (age 13, grade 7) standing behind her blue teammate Sylvia Cini (age 11, grade 7). Mrs. Stevens planned on spending much of the day in the coaches lounge correcting papers.

When I noticed this 8-tile rack I asked the Quabbin students if they saw anything wrong, besides the fact that they had too many vowels! It took them a few seconds, but they quickly seized on the problem: SCRABBLE® is played with seven-letter racks only.
