This post won't have a whole lot to do with what we've discussed in class, but you guys can feel free to add in comments on how this relates to chapter 6 if you would like! For my ASL 101 class, I had to watch the documentary "See What I'm Saying" that followed the lives of four deaf creators as they tried to be creative in a predominantly hearing world. While all of them were accepted into the deaf community as artists, they all had a lot of trouble becoming famous and making a name for themselves in the hearing world. This made me really upset, especially being a creator myself, as well as thinking about people like Marlee Matlin who was accepted into Hollywood fairly easily. I'm not sure everyone's major, but I'm assuming that everyone in this class is dedicated to making life easier for everyone, children and adults alike. Assuming this to be true, what can we do as the upcoming generation to make sure that people from all cultures are included and have the same opportunities, not just in school, but with their dreams? Why should it be okay for people to tell a deaf child that their dreams of becoming movie stars or musicians aren't substantial simply because they were born with hearing loss? I can't wait to hear your all's thoughts on this because I've been thinking pretty hard about it recently.

KUDOS! I am thrilled to hear your presentations went well. I am sad that I missed them. Obviously you have heard by now that I am home from a 7 day stay in the hospital having had triple bypass surgery. I am recovery well but it is a PROCESS! I am regaining my strength and stamina. I miss being able to be there to teach and learn with you. Dr. Gremp and I agreed I would occasionally drop in and connect with you on the blog. I am soooo grateful for all she is doing!! See you here and in class on April 4th!

Presentations are coming up and Katie and I need a favor! Our target age group is primary students, so naturally there is going to be coloring. So, if you all could bring colored pens or pencils, markers or whatever you prefer, to class that would be awesome!

I wanted to share with you guys what I thought was the most interesting part of Chapter 4. I found the part about Congenital losses fascinating! Especially the part about which combination of parents make what kind of baby. The diagrams on pages 70 and 71 are really helpful! What did the rest of you find the most interesting or most important about this chapter? There was so much information in this chapter, it's quite over whelming.
Also, does anyone have any food allergies? I am going to the store this weekend to buy candy for a game to go along with Savannah and I's project next Tuesday.

Theme - MOVE
- Go on your own independently and simply observe. It could be used as your Site Visit assignment.
- Go with others in the group and only observe and use it as your Site Visit assignment.
- Find at least 2 others in the class to work with to create a booth and use this experience to replace your Deaf Connections Assignment. A brief written follow-up paper will still be required.
