Thanks, Kathy, for your welcomed comments, and the hard work you have put
into your teaching SignWriting. I would like to ask your help, here on the
SignWriting List, if you have the time....
We have several new teachers who are trying to use SignWriting this
Fall...for example, Cecilia Flood in Albuquerque, New Mexico, will be
teaching with the "Learn To Read ASL in SW series" (the advanced
materials), like you did last Spring.
And then there are three new projects - one in Germany, and one in Peru,
and one in Troy, New York - so the question is - do you have any advice for
new teachers? How did you start with your students?....
