SignWriting Literacy Project
Teacher's Report 1
An Innovative New Way of
Teaching Deaf Students to Read & Write

to the
SignWriting Literacy Project!

We look forward to working with you :-)

Before we send you the SignWriting materials, we
would like to know a little about why you chose to participate.

Public Information
The purpose of the SignWriting Literacy Project is to share information with the general public about the use of SignWriting in education. Educators need to know if SignWriting can aid in teaching literacy. We are grateful that you are interested in providing information, which we hope will help future generations.

All the information you write in this report will be public information. It is therefore very important not to reveal any private information that should not be made public.

Teacher's Report #1
For Participating Teachers

1. Why do you want to learn SignWriting?



2. What have been some of your past frustrations when teaching?



3. Are you hoping that SignWriting might help? If so, in what way?



4. The SignWriting Teacher's Forum has a free web page for you and your students, to use in anyway you wish, just as long as it relates to SignWriting. For example, you can post your opinions about SignWriting, or you can post student's writing assignments. How would you like to use your web page?



5. Please write any other information about your group that you would like to share. You are welcome to write as much as you wish! Human interest stories will help us get to know you. It will make following your progress with SignWriting that much more exciting!
