Hello Michele and SW List Members!
I have not forgotten your report, Michele, which I am eager to answer and
post on our web site this weekend :-)

Yes, the TeachASL List, I believe, consists mostly of teachers of ASL. Paul
Cowley, our SW List owner, is also the owner of the TeachASL List. I would
suggest writing to Paul privately for information on how to join:

I am a member of the TeachASL List, but I only post announcements about new
postings on the SignWritingSite. Recently some of the TeachASL members
started discussing SignWriting because of the recent ASL grammar lesson I
posted. A few of the teachers defended SignWriting, but others are against
writing ASL - so there are differing opinions, as always!

I have been absorbed in grant writing for the SignWriting Literacy Project.
While I am thinking of it...does anyone know of other foundations that
grant funding to literacy projects? Several of you have already been very
helpful giving me advice, and I do appreciate that...but if there is anyone
else who can think of sources for funding please tell me. All grants and
donations to our nonprofit are tax-deductible. We don't need that much
funding, because I do everything on a shoestring, so I am looking for small
foundation grants or individuals who would like to help one school get
their donated supplies. If you know of anyone who is interested in helping
a school, please tell me :-)

I will write soon again and I look forward to it!

Have a wonderful Friday-

Valerie :-)
