SignWriting List
March 24, 2000

Your Deaf students should plan their own presentation....

That's what happened in Albuquerque...

Although the adults originally "thought" they were planning the
presentation, Deaf student Fernando, age 12, ended up designing the
entire program, writing a script for the presenters in SignWriting
(and English because he chose to)...

The kids are teaching the audience SignWriting, and then
demonstrating the computer program...

So ask your students how THEY would demonstrate SignWriting?

It doesn't have to be the same as Albuquerque's
should be unique to your students...

(PS. The teachers did a little planning too, but don't tell the Deaf
students that - ha!)
