Hi Val and List!
I have had great success getting students involved in projects in the past.
Perhaps the editing and captioning is something I could get a group of
middle school students to work on as a service learning project? I will
also try to involve other teachers with ASL students and Deaf and Hard of
Hearing students to join us. Contact me with details and I will work on
grants and donations to make this happen over this school year!
Thanks for doing all you do!
